The acclaimed crime noir from comics legend Frank Miller is presented at original size with new wrap-around cover art and pinup gallery. This tale of Marv and his angel is steeped in murder, mystery, corruption, and vengeance.

There is no light in a place like Sin City-only misery, crime, perversion . . . But for a single moment, amid the filth and degenerates, the hulking and unstable ex-con Marv has found an angel. She says her name is Goldie-a goddess who has blessed this wretched low-life with a night of heaven. But good things never last-a few hours later, Goldie is dead-murdered by his side without a mark on her body. Who was she? And who wanted her dead? The cops are on their way-it smells like a frame job, and this time, they won't let him live. Whoever killed Goldie . . . is going to pay. Marv's got a soul to send to hell, and it's going to get nasty.

Frank Miller returns to his hit comic opus with original cover art for the fourth editions of the graphic novel series, printed at their original size, beginning with Volume 1 The Hard Goodbye. This volume also includes a new pinup gallery featuring art from Joyce Chin, Amanda Conner, Klaus Janson, Paul Pope, Philip Tan, and Gerardo Zaffino! Devoted fans and new readers can again experience the groundbreaking and unparalleled noir masterpiece that has engrossed readers for nearly three decades!

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 resume and introduced his characters to an entirely new legion of fans worldwide.
