Dans l'ordre de parution, il s'agit de la deuxième histoire se déroulant à Sin City, après Sin City 1: The Hard Goodbye. L'action se situe concomitamment à celle du précédent volume.

Dwight McCarthy est un privé spécialisé dans la prise de photos scabreuses pour alimenter les procédures de divorce (l'option "cliquez pour feuilleter" vous permettra de mieux apprécier cette scène). Il fréquente le même bar que Marv (le personnage principal de Hard Goodbye) et il verse une commission à Agamemnon (qui a un joli poster d'Elektra chez lui) en l'échange de l'utilisation de sa chambre noire. Il est abstinent depuis plusieurs années.

Mais voilà qu'un soir, Ava Lord laisse un message sur son répondeur pour reprendre contact avec lui. Elle est mariée à un homme très riche de la ville qui la fait surveiller par Manute, un garde du corps noir gigantesque et elle semble dans une situation conjugale très délicate. Elle appelle Dwight à son secours. Dans un premier temps, il refuse, puis il se laisse convaincre et il monte une expédition de secours dans la propriété de Damien Lord (le mari d'Ava).

Frank Miller continue exactement dans la même veine que "The Hard Goodbye". Il présente au lecteur un nouvel héros (Dwight McCarthy) qui semble un peu plus stable mentalement que Marv, mais qui a des soucis de maîtrise de soi et un gros point faible dans la mesure où il se comporte en galant chevalier volant au secours des femmes opprimées.

"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. This ends up working against this story in a couple of ways.

It's another hot night... 22 mars 2005
Par Johnny Heering - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
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.

"I've Got Too Much To Do To Let Myself Die" 22 janvier 2005
Par Clare Quilty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Simpler than other volumes in the series, "A Dame To Kill For" is still a cool, dark slice of comic book noir -- imagine Eisner's "Spirit" onscreen, as directed by the Coens in a more serious mood.

This may be my favorite of the books (though trying to pick a favorite "Sin City" yarn is like trying to select a favorite Beatles album). It encapsulates everything I like about Miller's work: beautiful black-and-white illustrations with an emphasis on venetian blinds; cigarette smoke; shattered glass and dangerous curves; twisty storylines that pop in on one another; hot mamas and serious ultraviolence.

Plus, it contains my favorite moment in the entire series: Dwight, shot and seriously wounded by the murderous harlot he loved, is being raced away from a crime scene by Marv (who has a nice supporting role here). Marv says Dwight won't survive unless they get to the nearest hospital; Dwight, a bloody mess, insists on being taken somewhere further away and delivers the line of dialogue that best sums up the ethos of "Sin City" : "I'll make it. I won't die. I've got too much I have to do to let myself die." Sweet.

Love and death and grey all over... 10 avril 2005
Par Beardyjin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Sin City may be black ink on white paper, but it's nothing without the grey. The characters in this book are grey--all over.

A Dame to Kill For is the story of Dwight. Dwight is a good guy with 2 bad habits--booze & broads. But he's sober now. He's taking great pictures of husbands doing nasty things to women who aren't their wives in order to make a living as a private-eye. Dwight is damaged, but on the mend--until Ava shows up. Then it all gets messy. Really messy.

This is the 2nd tale of Sin City and about mid-way through the story Marv, the star of the first book, makes a guest appearance. This book stands completely on its own from book 1 (The Hard Goodbye). However, Marv's story in The Hard Goodbye begins to intertwine with Dwight's and Miller throws in a few cameos for those who read The Hard Goodbye.

This is probably my favorite Sin City yarn. I love them all, but in my opinion creator Frank Miller found his stride in book 1 then ran with it in spades with this book.

And for those folks delving into the world of Sin City because of the 2005 film, this book will be a special treat cuz it's the prequel to Dwight's story in The Big Fat Kill, in which Clive Owen, Michael Clarke Duncan & Rosario Dawson starred in the 2005 film. Do yourself a favor and throw down the cash for this book now. Trust me, $12 is peanuts for the all entertainment packed in these pages.

A Gritty Stroll Down the Dark End of the Street 28 avril 2000
Par Jeffrey A. Veyera - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
In 1986, Frank Miller ushered in a new age in comic writing and illustration with his landmark "Batman: The Dark Night Returns." A couple of years later, he reinvented the form again with his gritty return to Daredevil. To almost no one's surprise, Miller completely retooled the medium with his take on film noir in "Sin City".
How radical was this alteration in Miller's artistic vision?
In a world of garish, computer-derived colors, Miller constructed a world of broad swaths of black ink. In a medium dominated increasingly by splash pages linked by plots beneath the sophistication level of your average porno movie, Miller delivered a compelling satire of modern urban existence. In an industry increasingly convinced of its own sociological significance, Miller crafts a tale so over-the-top in its violent imagery as to eradicate any claim to stature amongst the Starbucks set.
How do you follow up the outstanding statement that was "Sin City"?
You don't.
"A Dame to Kill For" finds Miller clearly less infatuated with the vision that fairly screamed from his pen in the prior tale. The art, while still visually stunning in places and always crafted with a cinematic flair, seems somehow rushed here, as though the languid love affair he previously had with his imagery has cooled to a Thursday night quickie.
The plot involves a sleazy photographer whose past returns to haunt him in horrific fashion. As in the best film noir, nothing is as it initially seems, motives are rarely clear, and the hero takes a terrific beating along the way to both body and sensibility. Unfortunately, Miller's portrayal of the villain here is less nuanced than his past work, detracting from the psychological reality he is apparently trying to convey.
This is an eminently forgivable sin in the noir world. Did anyone truly believe that Bogart's Spade really wouldn't pack Mary Astor off to the big house at the end of "The Maltese Falcon"? Did anyone not find the melodramatic finale to "D.O.A." to ultimately ring hollow? Not likely, but neither did this diminish these films' stature as classics of the noir genre; after all, the noir world is in the final analysis a distorted vision of our own painted solely from the duskier hues of the palette.
While not a story to die for as was "Sin City", "A Dame to Kill For" is still a story well worth your time.

The story of how Dwight ended up with a new mug in Sin City 8 mai 2005
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"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.
