iconic big lug with a condition Marv; The Customer Is Always Righ. 710It's not like I didn't know what to expect It's right there in the title violence drunkenness and sex And it's not like the previous five albums were dealing with a different subject matter But I'm starting to wonder what is wrong with me that I come back so eagerly to Frank Miller's hellhole of a town On a rational level I tell myself it's the nod to all the classic hardboiled novels to come out of the Great Depression and the Prohibition And it's also the daring original graphic style pioneered by Miller The devil sitting on my left shoulder is whispering in my ear though you'd better go and join a Perverts Anonymous society Hello my name is Algernon and I like to look at pictures of naked ladies with chains and swords and guns and stuff Taken individually and out of context of the Sin City series as a whole the short stories included here don't amount to much which maybe explains why they are collected so late in an album For readers already familiar with the universe and with the main actors the stories work well at fleshing out some backstories and at re creating the atmosphere of darkness desire and danger that defines life in Basin City One important bonus for me is the fact that a lot of the shorts were written early in the development of the series so the artwork is in general better than the disappointing Family Values episodeJust Another Saturday Night opens the collection with the most iconic character at least for me in Sin City Marv the hulking brute that seems to be built from granite Shooting him is useless it will only serve make him angry and you really don't want to be around when Marv is pissed off Especially if he forgot to take his medication Taking revenge on a gang of frat boys out to have fun on a Saturday Night by setting the homeless on fire is just a regular day for Marv Like the girls of Old Town Marv is both judge and executioner for tresspasers of the honor code of the underworld The timeline is also interesting as it offers a different take of the key moment from That Yellow Bastard when Nancy meets Hartigan in Kadie's Bar Fat Man and Little Boy is Frank Miller's attempt at humour Two cheap goons for hire that we had seen in cameo appearances in the previous two albums are now trying to dump a dead body from the docks The jokes are relying mostly on their pretentious conversation riddled with long difficult words and affectations of sophistication It works but I still think Miller is at his best at internal monologues delivered in short unadorned tense sentences The Customer Is Always Right could have been great but it's too short to develop any kind of connection with the two characters who met on a rainy night on a high rise balcony Their conversation is long of innuendo and short on specifics I couldn't decide if the lady is clothed or not I think Miller drew her as a nude and then added some lines to suggest an evening dress Hm I guess I should study her panels a little Silent Night has some of the best artwork in the whole series and again stonefaced Marv is the lead character The rendering of snow and the deep shadows cast by the hulking Marv create a feeling of claustrophobia and anxiety The silence rules as none of the actors utters a word until almost the last panel and I dodn't think the story needed any As for the plot Marv's role as the Sin City justitiary is reinforced when he goes alone against a gang of sex traffickers And Behind Door Number Three is a very short short about the other band of Sin City vigilantes the hookers from Old Town When a stranger starts to cut up with a butcher's knife the women he lures into his bed the hookers set a trap for him and let tiny Miho teach him a lesson in the use of sharp blades Blue Eyes is one of the rare examples of Miller adding colour to his usual black white palette After yellow and red we have now a femme fatale defined by the colour blue Frank Miller is a great admirer of stereotypes when it comes to his ladies they're all smoking hot all willing to drop their clothes and jump into bed with the male leads all terminally dangerous to men's health and sanity A small time crook takes refuge in Kadie's Bar I believe all roads in Sin City ultimately lead to this place running from a hired killer While drooling over Nancy the stripper girating on a raised scene this guy Jim runs into his old flame Delia who apparently wants him back If it sounds familiar it is because it is almost word for word the scene from A Dame To Kill For between Dwight and Ava And likewise it will probably not result in a happy ever after Rats is pretty forgettable and unconnected to any other previous events as far as I can tell A man sits alone in a hotel room thinking about his past as a Nazi killer and doing disgusting things to rats Daddy's Little Girl continues the trend of whimpering scantily clad ladies causing troubles for the men they set their eyes on Amy a barely legal nymphet asks her older lover to help her get rid of an overbearing father The poor slob falls for one of the oldest tricks in the business killing for sexual gratification The story sets out to be provocative and it succeeds in a weird sleazy way Wrong Turn and Wrong Track are one story that for some reason was split into two uneual parts Moral of the story don't stop at night to pick up damsels in distress especially if they have blue eyes and very short dresses Delia is turning into a regular of the series I cheated a little by looking through the album no 7 where she plays a lead role Even if Delia is the typical Miller deadly temptress the story is worth checking out for the panels set in the Santa Yolanda Tar Pits the Basin City abandoned amusement park filled with giant statues of dinosaurs The Babe Wore Red is the last short story and I almost told myself that if this babe is another killer with doe eyes I will throw the book at the wall It comes close but this last dame appears to be in real distress when our old acuaintance Dwight discovers her hiding in the bathroom of an apartment where one of his friends has just been murdered A sniper shooting through the bathroom window throws the babe into the vigilante's arms and they run for their lives More shootings and beatings follow and later some revelations about the drug related activities of the dead man and about the secret identity of the red dressVerdict 25 stars for the stories 45 stars for the artworkrecommended mostly for fans of the series and for completists

T featured in the Sin City film; and The Babe Wore Red starring Sin City's most enduring hero Dwight; Booze Broads and Bullets spans every kind of dark b. This is the sixth volume of Sin City which I am reading in the Big Damn Sin City collection all seven volumes than 1300 pages BIG format brassy and bold And this volume is a collection of short stories a glimpse at the essence of the series not deep but emblematic of what he thinks the genre is all about Booze Broads and Bullets Well this is not what noir is all about but in his cartoon version of it without substantial character development he strips it all down to this with a laugh and a sneer and says this is what we really read this stuff for And the stories give you a kind of smorgasbord glimpse into the whole series the whole world It's a kind of short short story coda where he summarizes what it all about before the Big Finish of chapter seven Hell and Back But this is pithy and stripped down compared to that and that's the strength of it it's like a kind of poem so spare as stories really almost like tableaux And the art in this one is varied and shows off in a constantly shifting set of scenes what he is capable of This is when Miller was a master Yes women are objects here because that's the genre he was depicting in a city that is almost a caricature of a city Sin City But men are also objectified as bodies too caricatures of gangsters infused with testosterone If you see it as caricature as style you can see why in spite of its limitations I still like it a lot I am influenced in this review by Sam uixote's fine review of the same I'll admit it but I really did admire it
