hell-and-back2Title: Sin City – Hell and Back (Volume 7)
Author: Frank Miller
Finished: August 23, 2009
Pages: 320
Published: 2001

The final volume of the Sin City series, the longest of all, and very enjoyable. Unlike the past couple volumes, this one follows the same storyline throughout instead of bouncing around. I definitely enjoyed this one, but all the same happy to have competed another series. I would still highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the film, graphic novels, or other darker storylines.

From Goodreads.com:

Can anything be darker than noir? Try Frank Miller’s Sin City series. The tasty Hell and Back features Wallace, a brooding artist with a decided talent for hurting people, and Esther, a stunningly beautiful actress accidentally mixed up in a slavery ring that extends far and deep enough to transcend the word conspiracy. The tale twists, turns, and backtracks, teasing the reader with hints of terror to come–until the explosive climax. Miller’s art is exactly right for his words; he uses more black than white, and color only when appropriate. The chapter dealing with Wallace’s drug hallucinations is beautiful, heartbreaking, and terrifying in turn. Readers interested in the human dark side should find out what fans of Sin City already know: Frank Miller has seen it and wants to share.
