Has anyone read the Sin City comics that Frank Miller did? The movie was based on volumes 1, 3, & 4. There are 7 altogether.

I read 1, 3, & 4 when the movie was announced and really enjoyed them but haven't picked them up since then and never got around to reading the other volumes. And I love it. It's crazy and entertaining and the characters are very vivid. His prose is very entertaining...it's not Shakespeare but the imagery is very distinct and the art is fantastic.

Actually I just read A Dame to Kill For (vol. 2) for the first time as well and loved it. I think bits and pieces were adapted into the film but just a few lines of dialog or so.

Anyway, Sin City is great. Read it if you haven't.

Read most of them when the movie first came out, but i think "A Dame to Kill for" was supposed to be adapted for the 2nd film.

in the time that they came out, they truly were unique works of story and art.
