A Dame to Kill For boasts the same stylish violence and striking visual palette as the original Sin City, but lacks its predecessor's brutal impact. Weaving together Miller's classic stories with new tales, Sin City's hard-boiled citizens once again cross paths with more reviled inhabitants.

Play it again, Sin. + byRoth Cornet. Posted Aug. 22, 2014, 4:20 . For Sin City fans, A Dame to Kill For will likely feel like revisiting an old friend. As with the first, the film interweaves a collection of Frank Miller’s Sin City tales; two pre-existing - "Just Another Saturday Night" and "A Dame to Kill For" - and two original stories written specifically for the film - "The Long Bad Night" and "Nancy's Last Dance".

For Sin City fans, A Dame to Kill For will likely feel like revisiting an old friend. Though Joseph Gordon-Levitt brings the wise-cracking gambler Johnny to vivid life, his Sin City tale ultimately reads as shoehorned in.

Book in the Sin City Series). He managed another great tale from this dark world of Sin City.

In terms of the "Sin City" chronology, "A Dame to Kill For" comes before "The Hard Goodbye. We know because Marv is not only in the bar where Nancy is dancing as Dwight comes by for a visit, he helps his pal out when the hero of this story finds the man mountain named Manute to be insurmountable. This ends up working against this story in a couple of ways. You had to agree that it is hard to think of Marv as just a sidekick given how strong of a character that he is, and the fact that Dwight cannot handle Manute makes him a lesser hero. After all, it is Marv who.

Like most stories that come out Sin City, A Dame to Kill For is about a broken man unable to resist the spell of a woman in trouble. If Brolin is the movie’s tragic hero, then his comic counterpart is Christopher Meloni as Mort, a cop who falls pathetically in love with Av. Saving the girl, of course, means stalking her, possessing her and even smacking her around a little, and Ava makes a more willing lust object than most: Alluringly dressed in a shimmering blue coat the first time we see her, she thereafter develops a peculiar allergy to clothing of any kind.

Because of a shocking ending to the first Sin City book, many people wondered how successful Frank Miller could be with future tales of his no-holds-barred city noir

Because of a shocking ending to the first Sin City book, many people wondered how successful Frank Miller could be with future tales of his no-holds-barred city noir. Enter Dwight McCarthy, a clean-living photographer who tries to avoid trouble because he knows what he's capable of.

Before seeing the first movie (Sin City) I knew nothing about Frank Miller’s graphic novels. After seeing Sin City at the theater a few years ago, I liked it so much I purchased the DVD. I have not seen the latest movie (A dame to kill for) yet, but decided to start reading some of his graphic comics and graphic novels.

I began with Frank Miller’s Sin City a dame to kill for volume 1.
Like all his work, he focuses on the dark side of life in his material. The characters in this graphic comic are typical of the “Sin City” genre. They are dark, brooding, lustful, twisted, and in most cases psychopathic in nature.
I will be interested in seeing the new movie that just came out (Sin City: A dame to kill for) which is based upon this particular story (Vol. 1 0f 6).

If you are a Frank Miller fan you may want to check out this comic book series.

As Frank Miller's second volume in his Sin City library begins, we are introduced to photographer Dwight McCarthy; a man with a shady past he's trying to forget which comes crashing back when he receives a visit from his old flame Ava Lord who begs him to save her. While there's far more going on here than what lies on the surface, A Dame to Kill For never hits that all so special mark like the Hard Goodbye did. Miller's artwork is still superb and cinematic, but we don't really feel for Dwight here like we did for Marv in the Hard Goodbye (who makes an excellent appearance here in a supporting role). For those who are more familiar with the excellent film adaptation than the graphic novels, this is a prequel to the Big Fat Kill and it features many familiar characters; such as Gail, Manute, Shelly, Miho, and twins Goldie and Wendy. All in all, A Dame to Kill For isn't the best volume in Miller's influential Sin City library, but you'll rarely find graphic novels these days that get much better than this.

This is Frank Miller's second Sin City story. While it doesn't quite match The Hard Goodbye, it's a damn fine example of comics noir in it's own right. The lead character this time around is Dwight, but fans of Marv will be pleased to know that he shows up here in a supporting role. This story takes place prior to, and concurrently with, "The Hard Goodbye". In fact, you can see Marv enacting some scenes from "The Hard Goodbye" in the background of panels here. Anyway, the story is about how Dwight's ex-girlfriend Ava comes and asks him for help. I don't want to give away the story, but it may seem a bit familiar to fans of film noir. Despite what may seem like a predictable storyline, I loved it because it is so well told and the art is beautiful. This is not one of the stories that is being adapted for the Sin City motion picture, but the sequel to this book, The Big Fat Kill is in the movie.

The Dark Horse comics that came out in the 90s were really awesome back then. Reading this story line was instant nostalgia. The 90s, specifically around 1992 saw the emergence of creator owned comic book titles. Image comics had all the attention, but Dark Horse was already established. While the other publishers where trying to emulate Marvel and DC, Dark Horse published comics like Miller's Sin City. Many of these story line s were on sale here on Amazon, and I said "why not?". It was on sale and I really really enjoyed it.

"A Dame to Kill For," which is Book 2 in Frank Miller's "Sin City" series, is now going to be known as the only one of the first four books that was not part of the "Sin City" movie. Given the options it was a smart move because this one tells the story of what happened that made Dwight get a new mug and "The Big Fat Kill" is the better tale of the two if you are going to do one Dwight story and if you want to do a story in two parts "That Yellow Bastard" is a better choice as well.

Dwight is reduced by circumstances, most notably an attempt to stay sober, to spying on men cheating on their wives with prostitutes so that he can take their photographs. What he desperately wants is one clear chance to wipe the slate clean and get his life together. Four years earlier Ava left Dwight for another man and he knows that seeing her again is nothing but bad news above the fold even without the banner headline. He should just kill her or at least walk away, but when she begs him for help none of the cold harsh realities of what she has done and what sort of woman she really is matters to Dwight. He is going to need all the help he can get to deal with Ava, because being sober is not making Dwight smart enough to avoid making one big mistake.

In terms of the "Sin City" chronology, "A Dame to Kill For" comes before "The Hard Goodbye." We know because Marv is not only in the bar where Nancy is dancing as Dwight comes by for a visit, he helps his pal out when the hero of this story finds the man mountain named Manute to be insurmountable. This ends up working against this story in a couple of ways. You had to agree that it is hard to think of Marv as just a sidekick given how strong of a character that he is, and the fact that Dwight cannot handle Manute makes him a lesser hero. After all, it is Marv who labels Ava with the titular appellation. I knew that he was going to get his act together in the end, given what happens in the next book, but for most of this one Dwight is getting beat up, thrown through a window, and shot a whole bunch of times. Clearly Miller is making a point about the healing power of a burning desire for revenge

Overall, the black & white artwork (or, I should say, white on black artwork) is less experimental in Book 2 and if anything looks like it was drawn with white ink on black paper rather than the other way around. For me the sequence that stands out is in Chapter 2 when Dwight heads to a bar to meet with Ava and all of the panels have smoke drifting through them, although some of Miller's panels where the blinds on the windows make for alternative parallel lines of light and darkness are interesting (there are others that are just overkill). For the most part Miller is laying out the story so that it looks more like a conventional comic book than Book 1, so there is not the sense of boldness from before. But then the story is less ambitious as Dwight comes across as just another guy who made the mistake of thinking with some other part of his anatomy besides what is between his ears.

In 1995 "A Dame to Kill For" won Will Eisner's Best Limited Series Award so it is not like it is a book to skip. If you make it to Book 2 in the "Sin City" series you should be in for the long haul and more of those hot nights, dry and windless, that are the kind that make people do sweaty, secret things.

Felt a little padded at some points, but it is a great neo-noir story in a market deprived of such content. Not the best volume, but as great read all the same.
