Biographie de l'auteur

Frank Miller began his career in comics in the late 1970s, first drawing then writing Daredevil for Marvel Comics, creating what was essentially a crime comic disguised as a superhero book. It was on Daredevil that Miller gained notoriety, honed his storytelling abilities, and took his first steps toward becoming a giant in the comics medium.
After Daredevil came Ronin, a science-fiction samurai drama that seamlessly melded Japanese and French comics traditions into the American mainstream; and after that, the groundbreaking and acclaimed Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Batman: Year One, both of which not only redefined the classic character, but also revitalized the industry itself.
Finally able to fulfill his dream of doing an all-out, straight-ahead crime series, Miller introduced Sin City in 1991. Readers responded enthusiastically to Miller's tough-as-leather noir drama, creating an instant sales success. His multi-award-winning 300 series from Dark Horse, a telling of history's most glorious and underreported battle, was brought to full-blooded life in 1998.
In 2001, Miller returned to the superhero genre with the best-selling Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again.
Frank Miller continues to push the medium into new territories, exploring subject matter previously untouched in comics, and his work consistently receives the highest praise from his industry peers and readers everywhere. In 2005, with the hugely successful Sin City movie release, co-directed with Robert Rodriguez, Miller added a director's credit to his already impressive resumé and introduced his characters to an entirely new legion of fans worldwide. The author lives in New York, N.Y..

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Monumental Presentation of Miller's Defining Work 8 juillet 2014
Par Corey Lidster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This really is a big damn book, and I have many big books in my collection. Its' 9" wide by 12.5" tall format is impressive, but that's not SO big compared to the 16" x 21" Little Nemo editions, or Kramer's Ergot 7. And now that omnibus editions are fairly common, 1400 pages doesn't seem that surprising... Comix 2000 was 2000 pages, and The Invisibles Omnibus (for example) is over 1500 pages. But when you combine the XL dimensions with the page-count -- wow. It's a huge, heavy, beautiful book. Dark Horse deserve credit for the care they take to produce quality volumes, using the best grade paper-stock, cover-boards and binding, while keeping the price at a reasonable level. In stark contrast, DC uses the lowest grade materials they can get away with, and almost always set an MSRP higher than other publishers. DC's Absolute Editions, which are excellent books, can't compare with this colossal release; and yet, Big Damn Sin City is more affordable than Absolute volumes that are the same size and 1/4 the length.

Anyone who is contemplating this purchase is no doubt a long-time Sin City fan, or at the least a hardcore fan of more recent acquaintance. In the near quarter-century since the first classic story featuring 'Marv' was serialized in Dark Horse Presents, a great many 'Comics Noir' titles have revived a genre that was nearly dead before Frank Miller blew everyone away. After Sin City, there emerged a wealth of high-caliber crime comics -- Stray Bullets by David Lapham, Whiteout, Queen & Country, and Stumptown by Greg Rucka, Azzarello and Risso's 100 Bullets, Blacksad by J.D. Canales and Juanjo Guarnido, Scene of the Crime, Criminal, and Fatale by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, and Richard Stark's Parker by Darwyn Cooke. These works are brilliant examples of crime comics done right, mature, thoughtful storytelling that examines our deepest fears and desires, refusing to pull punches. Sin City, though very different from the titles listed above, was an obvious inspiration for them all; ever since 1956, when the Kefauver Senate Subcommittee Hearings stigmatized comics and led to the draconian self-censorship of the Comics Code Authority, the crime and horror genres had disappeared from the racks. Frank Miller purposely left DC for Dark Horse, a new publisher at the time, and one of the first to release comics that didn't bear the CCA seal (the 'seal' meant distributors were allowed to ship a comic to convenience stores, gas stations, newspaper kiosks, etc. By threatening a publisher with a 'seal refusal', it meant that the vast network of newspaper and magazine distributors in North America would not ship the title). The emergence of specialty comic shops in the 80's, combined with the 'comic boom' of the late 80's and early 90's, gave creators a chance to leave the slavery of DC and Marvel behind. Miller also wanted ownership of his characters, something Dark Horse was very willing to do, thereby attracting other popular comic creators seeking artistic freedom, most notably Mike Mignola, whose Hellboy Universe of comics, books and films have been a huge success. Sin City was the first great creator-owned title produced by a DC-Marvel refugee. Everything about it, from the stunning black and white art to the raw language, explicit sex and nudity, and shocking violence, felt as though each new page could reveal something amazing, and it usually did. The interconnected characters and plots, the recurring locales, all made 'Basin City' feel like a real place, as real as New York or Boston. Creating an entire city and instilling it with a personality and atmosphere of its own is an impressive feat, and one few writers pull off.

Although I already own the trade paperbacks collecting the various series and one-shots, as a hardcore fan I've been waiting for something like this, but expected a multi-volume deluxe hardcover series of reprints. This omnibus volume exceeded all my expectations: an over-sized presentation of a brilliant artist at his peak, and a master storyteller's greatest work. The only thing I would've liked to see included that wasn't, no doubt trying to keep the already massive page-count to a manageable size, are the covers -- for the single issues that make up 'The Big Fat Kill', 'That Yellow Bastard', and 'Hell and Back', which were illustrated by Miller and featured beautifully painted colors by his wife, Lynn Varley. As well, the original run of Sin City through the 90's inspired a number of pin-ups by some very popular and talented artists, which aren't essential, but would have made for interesting extras. Finally, an introduction or afterword by the Man himself would have been appropriate, if this monumental Omnibus is going to serve as a tombstone for Sin City. The painted covers for the 1st TPB printings of every book but 'The Hard Goodbye' ARE included however, providing attractive introductions for each story (which may be the reason they didn't include them; each TPB cover acts as a 'story break'; having painted single-issue 'chapter-breaks' on some stories, but not others, would make for a confusing and inconsistent design flaw; but a cover-gallery at the end would do nicely). The paper-stock, as is so often the case with Dark Horse, is high-grade, a thick, glossy, acid-free paper. After seeing the difference between black & white art by Miller, Jaime Hernandez or David Lapham printed on glossy 'Arctic White' (150gr/or better), it is by far the ideal choice, providing a high-contrast distinction, with cleaner lines and spot-blacks. The painted colors from one particular chapter of 'Hell & Back' are reproduced perfectly, and of course, the color-specific characters like the Yellow Bastard and the blue-clothed Delia add a little variety to his stunning B&W art. A must for Frank Miller fans.

P.S. The original Sin City film ranks as one of the most satisfying adaptations of a written work; Rodriguez, Miller and Tarantino's film is second only to the Coen Brothers' adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's No Country For Old Men. But I wish Miller would leave the sequel's direction in capable hands and focus on a return to the Sin City comics. It is still very rich narrative territory, and after a decade and a half away, Miller should have plenty of great ideas. Still, artists rarely confine themselves to one title, or story, or subject, and I'd be happy to see him drawing any kind of tale -- as long as it's not superheroes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hot Damn, Indeed! 8 juillet 2014
Par Anarchy in the US - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Frank Miller is one of the highest names in the comic world for his highly influential work for the medium including The Dark Knight Returns, Daredevil, 300, Ronin, and the esteemed work this very review is discussing, Sin City. Sin City is an ode to the classic film noir-mystery crime drama with elements of pulp and bold comic sequences spread throughout to make a strong book in terms of story telling and minimalist art that is a beautiful combination. The series ran off and on from 1991 through 2000 with various trades over the years, and even made into a full-scale film in 2005.

It being the year 2014, with the release of a new Sin City movie coming out next month (based on the second book, A Dame to Kill For), Dark Horse has not only re-printed A Dame to Kill For in a new hardcover (Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For) with some bonus material, but they did something that has not been done before until now: make an omnibus of Sin City. Although it is not labeled as an omnibus, it pretty much is to a fault. This being Frank Miller's magnum opus to the comic world under one large hardcover, this is a must have for content and price tag alone.

BIG DAMN SIN CITY collects the entire series.

The Hard Goodbye (Sin City) Episodes #1-13 of 13 from Dark Horse 5th Anniversary Special and Dark Horse Presents issues #51-62
Sin City Volume 2: A Dame to Kill For (3rd Edition) Issues #1-6
Sin City Volume 3: The Big Fat Kill (3rd Edition) Issues #1-5
Sin City Volume 4: That Yellow Bastard (3rd Edition)Issues #1-6
Sin City Volume 5: Family Values (3rd Edition) 128-page original graphic novel
Sin City Volume 6: Booze, Broads, & Bullets (3rd Edition) A number of one-shots
Sin City Volume 7: Hell and Back (3rd Edition) Issues #1-9

[Since review this omnibus would be far too long and detailed, I will simply summarize this series. If you would like to know more detail regarding each of the stories, please click on the links above for more information.]

Taking place in the fictional Basin City, where corruption is the rule and life is a miserable thing. It's a gritty, dark, ugly, and very edgy series with mostly stand alone tales with several interwoven connections to other stories. The stories include a revenge tale about a hulk named Marv, a photographer named Dwight falling for an ex-flame to possibly kill her husband, an ailing cop Hartigan trying to protect a young girl from a rapist/sadist/murderer, Dwight looking into a mob murder and protect a piece of the city of prostitutes from attack, to small vignette stories, and finally an old war vet named Wallace having a drink with a woman that leads to a kidnapping.

I could go into far more detail on each story, but I would be writing a thesis paper if I did and spoil some surprises that go with it. As I mentioned before, Sin City is a film noir crime drama that fans of the genre will love. For a good example, if you have seen the 2005 film, that's what the book is in a nutshell. It's a stark, bitter, and depressing noir story with lots of killing, blood, sex, language, and revenge in a way to the old-school genre of film making. It is a bleak series from beginning to end, but its oh-so well done you cannot help but love it and read on.

The other aspect that makes Sin City a must read, or must look at, is the art style which Frank Miller also drew himself. The artwork is visually portrayed as stark black and white, with a high usage of minimalist design with lots of nudity and blood. There are hues of color for special effect and importance, but again, very minimal. It's probably one of, if the last pieces of Frank Miller's artwork on full display before he started losing his drawing style. If there is any highlight to want about this series, it's the artwork.

Since there are numerous reviews on the Sin City series, it's nothing new for me to describe it to you, but the big feature is what makes this 2014 hardcover tick. Again, it includes all of the Sin City series under one hardcover, the dimensions of the book are a whopping 12  inches wide with 8  length, with 3.6 inches thick and around 8 bounds or so, making this big-guy bigger and wider than most omnibus out on the market. No dust jacket but solid board wrapped around. It looks and feels a tad thicker than most omnibus boards as well, though it could just be me seeing things. The binding is sewn with high-grade/low reflective paper which is amazing considering 1300+ pages. The book folds out flat with almost no gutter loss from what I saw. You might get some slight cracking near the ends the first time opening the book, but for the most part, the books lays flat with no problems and feels sturdy. A bright red ribbon takes up the middle of the book as a bookmark. As for additional content, there is none sadly. We only get a page with all the softcovers and a biography of Frank Miller and that's it. I know plenty of people love extras in their omnibus collections, but considering 1300+ pages in high grade paper stock, the lack of extras is pretty insignificant as a whole.

This is the part where I point out the flaws or setbacks in my review, but considering how much content there is for the price, I feel there barely any flaws. This is a book for mature readers and because of it's weight/thickness, it will be uncomfortable to read on your lap.

So BIG DAMN SIN CITY is probably Frank Miller's grandest achievement in the comic world in terms of scale, writing and drawing himself, and still making a compelling read/sight for the eyes to readers. This is a wonderful package and the amount your paying at $100 price tag that would be $125-$150 from DC and Marvel is a steal, even more so with Amazon discount at $60 is worth owning. If you're a Frank Miller fan or fan of the film or crim/noir, pick this beauty up now. This book really does sum up the statement on the cover, "Hot damn!"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 That's a big damn book 9 juillet 2014

I couldn't believe the size of this book when it arrived. Looks really impressive on the shelf. Haven't gotten into Sin City before so when I saw this on here I just had to pre order! Best way I(and easiest) to collect the entire series! And for this price you can't beat it. My only other book that compares in size is the Sandman Omnibus and that was 100 and is still quite a bit smaller. So if you are a Frank Miller fan or just a fan of the movies you must get! Highly recommend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Omnibus is satisfying and HUGE!!!! 8 juillet 2014
Par Scott L. Howard Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I'm going to start this review by saying that, if you plan on taking this book with you on the bus, train, bicycle, etc. forget about it. This book borders on unreasonable in size, I nearly burst out into hysteric laughter after attempting to lift the package when it arrived. It is most certainly a book that you will need to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. Weighing in at the size of a bowling ball (About 12 lbs. or more) you'll definitely want to read on the couch or coffee table. Comparable to the largest Omnibus in my collection (The Sandman), B.D.S.C. is almost twice the size. At nearly 1500 pages, you're getting a heck of a lot of bang for your buck.

Regardless of the size, B.D. Sin City has the most gorgeous artwork from Frank Miller, being able to watch Hartigan, Marv, Deadly Little Miho, Ava Lord, Nancy back at it again in greatly stretched format is fantastic! Miller's definitive artwork is blown up at nearly 3 times it's original printed format and it is astounding to behold. The art is crisp, sharp, and looks even better on the nice thick paper they used in this edition. I honestly have no fears of unintentional rips or tears along the way.

What I am fearful of is the glued binding, as previously stated, this is a large book and the binding may have trouble standing the test of time and multiple reads if not properly taken care of. Don't let that make you afraid though, this is an unbelievable price for all of the issues of Sin City and even a few one shots. You're going to get every single issue you can imagine in this books with nothing left to want.

If you are considering purchasing this item, you are likely already familiar with the series, which I think is excellent. This collected edition is of high quality, with a solid binding, a ribbon bookmark and the volume will lay flat and stay open despite its hefty size. I've deducted one star because no extra material accompanies the stories, as is usually the case in anthologies like this.
