RARA-AVIS: Hard Boiled Comix

Wed, 14 Jan 1998 16:01:08 -0500 (EST) there is absolutely nothing more hard boiled than Frank Miller's black and
white graphic novel series SIN CITY. particularly the 1st originally
serialized collection which features a serial killer who makes his victims
watch as he eats their severed limbs, and then collects their heads on a
wall; and a protagonist who murders a crooked archbishop, feeds the serial
killer to his own dogs and dies in the electric chair at the end.

Mike Hammer did indeed begin life as a comic book character called Mike
Danger. new Mike Danger episodes are now being published and are written by
prolific mystery writer Max Allan Collins. the series has also been optioned
by Miramax Films.
