Sin City, Vol. 4: That Yellow Bastard

Sin City, Vol. 4: That Yellow Bastard

In a Sin City short story, "The Babe Wore Red," Frank Miller deviated from his stark black-and-white artwork by adding tiny bits of color throughout the story. The girl's dress was red, her lips were red--you get the picture. In That Yellow Bastard, the fourth Sin City graphic novel, Miller's experiment with yellow ink is also a tremendous success. The setup is simple. On In a Sin City short story, "The Babe Wore Red," Frank Miller deviated from his stark black-and-white artwork by adding tin...

    Number four - I still really hate the artwork, but the story is first rate. There's nothing like a good vengeance tale, and Miller's story of a wronged cop finally righting the score is particularly sweet. My most bone-chilling moment? This little speech delivered by one of the vill...

    You just cannot go wrong with Sin City! So much is in these pages: action, intrigue, really bad baddies, really good (but tragic) goodies. My only caution is it may be a bit much for some. If you prefer you violence, language and sex tame, this may not be the series fro you. But...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ John Hartigan has served the police force well and his retirement is deserved, but when he gets word that little Nancy Callahan has been kidnapped he can?t just hand over his badge and gun without attempting to sav...

    [9/10] The best Sin City episode for me since "The Hard Goodbye". I'm not making a case that the previous two albums were inferior. I was just waiting for a strong lead character to rival the unique voice of Marv, and for some of that sharp internal monologues that cut to the the bo...

    That Yellow Bastard is Frank Miller's fourth graphic novel of the critically acclaimed Sin City series to be published, but in chronological terms it is the first. The first novelty that the author publishes in this book is the creation and use of a completely honest character and wit...

    This is the best so far of the Sin City volumes, which I am reading as part of the BIG DAMN Sin City complete collection, which is 1357 pages long and in a really BIG format, which is sort of appropriate for Miller's sort of approach to noir, mostly black and white (though this one add...

    Hartigan is a cop. Last day before retirement. He spends it hunting down a pedophile and saving the little girl, 11-year-old Nancy Callahan. Because the pedophile was the senator's son, Hartigan - who was shot 6 times AND has a bad heart - is fingered as the pedophile. He spends 8 year...

    It starts slow, but gets better at the end of the third chapter! Totally reminiscent of the end of the first movie. ...

    The name Frank Miller is a certificate for quality in the comics world, his noir series Sin City are an excellent example of a quality comic that is based purely on the writer/artist and owned by him as well. That Yellow bastard is a brilliant telling in the oldish noir style with i...

    Frank Miller continues to weave his magic.I like that each book is basically a prequel to the book before it.Mr.Miller penchant for penning kick ass characters continues.Hartigan stole the show.Real tough cop with a big heart.Also liked how Nancy Callahan origin came about.Lastly the a...

    Until now, this is my favorite installment. Even though it's hard to pick, because "The Big Fat Kill" was also really good, I'm sticking with this one. The Yellow guy is really creepy and the fact that he is drawn in yellow in an all-black drawing work makes him stand out even more. ...

    Another story that was featured in the Sin City movie. Almost forgot all of the details to this one. https://youtu.be/LdggXkVl8gA ...

    This is , for me, the weakest book of the series - so far. I knew most of the story from the first Sin City movie, but that was not the problem. What I like most about the books is the atmosphere they create. THe impressive dark pictures in combination with some meaningful texts (most...

    Oh...my...God...the ending! Every volume is better than the previous one! I'm in love with these babies!!! And the artwork in this one...wow...just WOW! ...

    Story Synopsis: (view spoiler)[Just hours before his retirement, Hartigan ? an honest and devoted Sin City cop ? saves the life of Nancy Callahan, maiming and castrating Roark's pedophilic son in the process. Wrongly framed for the molestation of Nancy and assault of an "innocent" ...

    By this point in reading the series I was damn sick of seeing Nancy twirl herself around on stage in that damn cowgirl outfit. I always figured she was a big shit character and was hoping she'd have a hell of a back story. Well, here it is. This is my second favorite so far (first bein...

    Out of all of Frank Miller's Sin City books this has to be the best or tied with The Hard Good Bye (vol.1). In some cop movies or works there are always an older cop like Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon who are getting too old for their work, or are two days from retirement or something....

    This volume features the colouring style that really adds something else to Miller's art. Compared with the other books, this one has a pace to it that seems more determined than before. The path seems more linear and the goal stays more straight-forward. However, that doesn't remove f...

    Hartigan's story is my favorite. It's also one of the saddest. All of his heroics end up tragic but it goes to show sometimes a hero must face tragedy in order to be the hero. The tie ins to the other stories are always a nice touch but it makes you see the timeline. The books go backw...

    Number four - I still really hate the artwork, but the story is first rate. There's nothing like a good vengeance tale, and Miller's story of a wronged cop finally righting the score is particularly sweet. My most bone-chilling moment? This little speech delivered by one of the vill...

    You just cannot go wrong with Sin City! So much is in these pages: action, intrigue, really bad baddies, really good (but tragic) goodies. My only caution is it may be a bit much for some. If you prefer you violence, language and sex tame, this may not be the series fro you. But...

    [9/10] The best Sin City episode for me since "The Hard Goodbye". I'm not making a case that the previous two albums were inferior. I was just waiting for a strong lead character to rival the unique voice of Marv, and for some of that sharp internal monologues that cut to the the bo...

    That Yellow Bastard is Frank Miller's fourth graphic novel of the critically acclaimed Sin City series to be published, but in chronological terms it is the first. The first novelty that the author publishes in this book is the creation and use of a completely honest character and wit...

    This is the best so far of the Sin City volumes, which I am reading as part of the BIG DAMN Sin City complete collection, which is 1357 pages long and in a really BIG format, which is sort of appropriate for Miller's sort of approach to noir, mostly black and white (though this one add...

    Until now, this is my favorite installment. Even though it's hard to pick, because "The Big Fat Kill" was also really good, I'm sticking with this one. The Yellow guy is really creepy and the fact that he is drawn in yellow in an all-black drawing work makes him stand out even more. ...

    Another story that was featured in the Sin City movie. Almost forgot all of the details to this one. https://youtu.be/LdggXkVl8gA ...

    Story Synopsis: (view spoiler)[Just hours before his retirement, Hartigan ? an honest and devoted Sin City cop ? saves the life of Nancy Callahan, maiming and castrating Roark's pedophilic son in the process. Wrongly framed for the molestation of Nancy and assault of an "innocent" ...

    By this point in reading the series I was damn sick of seeing Nancy twirl herself around on stage in that damn cowgirl outfit. I always figured she was a big shit character and was hoping she'd have a hell of a back story. Well, here it is. This is my second favorite so far (first bein...

    Out of all of Frank Miller's Sin City books this has to be the best or tied with The Hard Good Bye (vol.1). In some cop movies or works there are always an older cop like Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon who are getting too old for their work, or are two days from retirement or something....

    This volume features the colouring style that really adds something else to Miller's art. Compared with the other books, this one has a pace to it that seems more determined than before. The path seems more linear and the goal stays more straight-forward. However, that doesn't remove f...

    This is the first of the Sin City series I ever read. I actually have the original four issue comic. This is also one of the stories shown in the Sin City movie. For those who are familiar with Frank Miller's work, nothing in here will be surprise. Sin City is dark, twisted and bad peo...

    GREAT... GREAT NOVEL... GREAT... Gosh, this book was really good... The meaning that is encarved in this book is so beautiful, sweet and heart-warming and it is between the many layers of a grotesque, bloody, violent graphic novel which is a lovely twist... It makes satisfied when y...

    The best in the series so far. ...

    Definitely the hardest hitting and best of the Sin City books so far. Very good. ...

    Hartigan's story is my favorite. It's also one of the saddest. All of his heroics end up tragic but it goes to show sometimes a hero must face tragedy in order to be the hero. The tie ins to the other stories are always a nice touch but it makes you see the timeline. The books go backw...

    Wow! Just all kinds of wow! Excellent side trip through Sin City. ...

    Summary: The weakest of the Sin City books, this one features mostly powerful writing and glorious black & white illustrations with unsettling splashes of yellow but suffers from an unbelievable plot point and a nonsensical ending. _____ In Sin City, heroism is relative bu...

    Until now, this is my favorite installment. Even though it's hard to pick, because "The Big Fat Kill" was also really good, I'm sticking with this one. The Yellow guy is really creepy and the fact that he is drawn in yellow in an all-black drawing work makes him stand out even more. ...

    Another story that was featured in the Sin City movie. Almost forgot all of the details to this one. https://youtu.be/LdggXkVl8gA ...

    This is , for me, the weakest book of the series - so far. I knew most of the story from the first Sin City movie, but that was not the problem. What I like most about the books is the atmosphere they create. THe impressive dark pictures in combination with some meaningful texts (most...

    Oh...my...God...the ending! Every volume is better than the previous one! I'm in love with these babies!!! And the artwork in this one...wow...just WOW! ...

    Story Synopsis: (view spoiler)[Just hours before his retirement, Hartigan ? an honest and devoted Sin City cop ? saves the life of Nancy Callahan, maiming and castrating Roark's pedophilic son in the process. Wrongly framed for the molestation of Nancy and assault of an "innocent" ...

    By this point in reading the series I was damn sick of seeing Nancy twirl herself around on stage in that damn cowgirl outfit. I always figured she was a big shit character and was hoping she'd have a hell of a back story. Well, here it is. This is my second favorite so far (first bein...

    Out of all of Frank Miller's Sin City books this has to be the best or tied with The Hard Good Bye (vol.1). In some cop movies or works there are always an older cop like Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon who are getting too old for their work, or are two days from retirement or something....

    This volume features the colouring style that really adds something else to Miller's art. Compared with the other books, this one has a pace to it that seems more determined than before. The path seems more linear and the goal stays more straight-forward. However, that doesn't remove f...

    This is the first of the Sin City series I ever read. I actually have the original four issue comic. This is also one of the stories shown in the Sin City movie. For those who are familiar with Frank Miller's work, nothing in here will be surprise. Sin City is dark, twisted and bad peo...

    GREAT... GREAT NOVEL... GREAT... Gosh, this book was really good... The meaning that is encarved in this book is so beautiful, sweet and heart-warming and it is between the many layers of a grotesque, bloody, violent graphic novel which is a lovely twist... It makes satisfied when y...

    The best in the series so far. ...

    Definitely the hardest hitting and best of the Sin City books so far. Very good. ...

    Hartigan's story is my favorite. It's also one of the saddest. All of his heroics end up tragic but it goes to show sometimes a hero must face tragedy in order to be the hero. The tie ins to the other stories are always a nice touch but it makes you see the timeline. The books go backw...

    Wow! Just all kinds of wow! Excellent side trip through Sin City. ...

    On his last day on the police force, honest cop Hardigan receives a tip about an 11-year-old girl kidnapped by the rapist son of a corrupt city official, Roark Junior. Despite a severe heart problem, Hardigan makes rescuing the girl his last mission before retirement. The story begins ...

    This is the best so far of the Sin City volumes, which I am reading as part of the BIG DAMN Sin City complete collection, which is 1357 pages long and in a really BIG format, which is sort of appropriate for Miller's sort of approach to noir, mostly black and white (though this one add...

    Hartigan is a cop. Last day before retirement. He spends it hunting down a pedophile and saving the little girl, 11-year-old Nancy Callahan. Because the pedophile was the senator's son, Hartigan - who was shot 6 times AND has a bad heart - is fingered as the pedophile. He spends 8 year...

    It starts slow, but gets better at the end of the third chapter! Totally reminiscent of the end of the first movie. ...

    The name Frank Miller is a certificate for quality in the comics world, his noir series Sin City are an excellent example of a quality comic that is based purely on the writer/artist and owned by him as well. That Yellow bastard is a brilliant telling in the oldish noir style with i...

    Frank Miller continues to weave his magic.I like that each book is basically a prequel to the book before it.Mr.Miller penchant for penning kick ass characters continues.Hartigan stole the show.Real tough cop with a big heart.Also liked how Nancy Callahan origin came about.Lastly the a...

    Until now, this is my favorite installment. Even though it's hard to pick, because "The Big Fat Kill" was also really good, I'm sticking with this one. The Yellow guy is really creepy and the fact that he is drawn in yellow in an all-black drawing work makes him stand out even more. ...

    Another story that was featured in the Sin City movie. Almost forgot all of the details to this one. https://youtu.be/LdggXkVl8gA ...

    This is , for me, the weakest book of the series - so far. I knew most of the story from the first Sin City movie, but that was not the problem. What I like most about the books is the atmosphere they create. THe impressive dark pictures in combination with some meaningful texts (most...

    Oh...my...God...the ending! Every volume is better than the previous one! I'm in love with these babies!!! And the artwork in this one...wow...just WOW! ...

    Number four - I still really hate the artwork, but the story is first rate. There's nothing like a good vengeance tale, and Miller's story of a wronged cop finally righting the score is particularly sweet. My most bone-chilling moment? This little speech delivered by one of the vill...

    You just cannot go wrong with Sin City! So much is in these pages: action, intrigue, really bad baddies, really good (but tragic) goodies. My only caution is it may be a bit much for some. If you prefer you violence, language and sex tame, this may not be the series fro you. But...

    Story Synopsis: (view spoiler)[Just hours before his retirement, Hartigan ? an honest and devoted Sin City cop ? saves the life of Nancy Callahan, maiming and castrating Roark's pedophilic son in the process. Wrongly framed for the molestation of Nancy and assault of an "innocent" ...

    By this point in reading the series I was damn sick of seeing Nancy twirl herself around on stage in that damn cowgirl outfit. I always figured she was a big shit character and was hoping she'd have a hell of a back story. Well, here it is. This is my second favorite so far (first bein...

    Out of all of Frank Miller's Sin City books this has to be the best or tied with The Hard Good Bye (vol.1). In some cop movies or works there are always an older cop like Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon who are getting too old for their work, or are two days from retirement or something....

    This volume features the colouring style that really adds something else to Miller's art. Compared with the other books, this one has a pace to it that seems more determined than before. The path seems more linear and the goal stays more straight-forward. However, that doesn't remove f...

    This is the first of the Sin City series I ever read. I actually have the original four issue comic. This is also one of the stories shown in the Sin City movie. For those who are familiar with Frank Miller's work, nothing in here will be surprise. Sin City is dark, twisted and bad peo...

    GREAT... GREAT NOVEL... GREAT... Gosh, this book was really good... The meaning that is encarved in this book is so beautiful, sweet and heart-warming and it is between the many layers of a grotesque, bloody, violent graphic novel which is a lovely twist... It makes satisfied when y...

    Definitely the hardest hitting and best of the Sin City books so far. Very good. ...

    Hartigan's story is my favorite. It's also one of the saddest. All of his heroics end up tragic but it goes to show sometimes a hero must face tragedy in order to be the hero. The tie ins to the other stories are always a nice touch but it makes you see the timeline. The books go backw...
