Marv And His Angel Celebrate Their Pearl Anniversary With New Softcover Release
by Brendan M. Allen
Frank Miller’s tale of Marv and his angel turned 30 last month. To mark the occasion, Dark Horse will publish a new softcover edition presented at original size with new wrap-around cover art and pinup gallery. Sin City has never been seen like this.
‘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. Marv’s got a soul to send to hell, and it’s going to get nasty.’
This edition 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 experience the noir masterpiece that has engrossed readers for nearly three decades!
Frank Miller’s Sin City Volume 1: The Hard Goodbye will also be available in a deluxe format! The hardcover includes an exclusive sketchbook of never-before-published development art selected by Miller and a sleek slipcase.
Frank Miller’s Sin City Volume: 1 The Hard Goodbye drops on September 29, 2021 in comic shops and will arrive in bookstores October 12, 2021, with subsequent volumes to be released over the course of the following months. The softcover will retail for $25, and the deluxe will go for $100.
