The Hard Goodbye (Sin City, Book 1)

Sin City, Vol. 1: The Hard Goodbye - Frank Miller This was one that once I started it, I could not put it down until the very end. The art on this is definitely gritty and well suited to the noir story of revenge that Miller presents. I can certainly see why this work was such a breakthrough in its time. It is fast paced, and it grabs you from the start. If you like hard-boiled works like Hammett, Spillane, so on, you should read this even if you are not a fan of graphic novels. This is one that will stay with me for a while. And, after seeing the movie, I can appreciate a lot of what the movie left out, but I can also see how the movie was very successful in capturing the "feel" of the comic. Very good reading overall.
