This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the crew cracks the cover on the black and white pulp noir tale from Sin City:

The Hard Goodbye takes place in Sin City – a land as tough as leather and as dry as timber. Love is the fuel, and the now-infamous character Marv has the match, not to mention a “condition.” He’s gunning after Goldie’s killer and it’s time to watch this town burn.

  1. Love the Sin City books, specialy the fact that all the stories, at one point or another, happen at the same time.

    When it comes to “The Hard Goodbye” (or “to Pain The Town Red” as it was re-named after the movie) all I have to say is this:
    “And when his eyes go dead, the Hell I send him to will seem like Heaven after what I’ve done to him” Does it get more film noir and hardcore then this?

  2. I really liked this one. Frank Miller’s black-and-white art in Sin City is some of the nicest-looking stuff in comic history, and the story is one of the more interesting examples of Miller’s over-the-top style.

    The only problem is that the years have not been kind to Miller’s work. With every awful comic he writes now, his older work looks just a little bit worse for the similarities.
