‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ Red Band Trailer Promises Girls, Girls, Girls, Inevitably

capture-20140728-131107

Remember 2005? Back when we didn't have a lot of good comic book movies to celebrate? Back before the first 300 movie, when the whole idea of that posturing "no homo" otherness-phobic carnival of green screened pomposity seemed like it might be exciting? Back before Frank Miller's swastika-festooned The Spirit left a bad taste in everyone's mouths? Back when people were still insisting The Dark Knight Strikes Again was actually good satire, before Holy Terror confirmed that, no, Frank Miller is actually frighteningly sincere? Back when we clung to deniability?

Good news, everyone! It's 2005 again, and we get another chance to pretend Mickey Rourke poking his head through a loaf of bread is a thing that works. Here's another Sin City: A Dame To Kill For trailer, and it's everything you'd expect it to be; stylish and insubstantial, with the promise of ample degradation. It's also 'Red Band,' which means you have to be a mature person to watch it, ironically.

IDW To Publish Hugo Pratt’s Complete ‘Corto Maltese’ In English For The First Time

home1

If you're not familiar with Italian cartoonist Hugo Pratt's sailor and adventurer Corto Maltese, it's likely because you're reading this in English.

Though Pratt is widely regarded as one of the pioneers of comics as literature, releasing the first Corto Maltese story, "The Ballad of the Salty Sea," in 1967, stories featuring the character have been translated into English sporadically. (They were originally published in either Italian or French.) Some have never been translated. IDW's new imprint EuroComics is planning to change that by collecting every single Corto Maltese comic, translated into English, in 12 volumes starting this December.

Eric So’s ‘Sin City’ Vinyl Figure Is Cartoonishly Brutal, Just Like The Original Marv

Marv vinyl figure by Eric So

If you're the type of person who really likes collectible statues,then you may already be familiar with the work of Eric So, who designed a vinyl figure of Mike Mignola's Hellboy a while back. Now, he's back with another Dark Horse icon: Marv, the two-fisted, impossibly violent star of the first arc of Frank Miller's Sin City, complete with a billowing trenchcoat and a set of bandages.

The figure stands 13 inches tall with a limited run of 950 pieces, and as you might expect, it's set to be released this September in conjunction with the second Sin City movie with a price of $150. And, just to make things even more fun, Marv's signature bandages are packed separately so that you can apply them yourself as you see fit. Check out the full figure below!

Best Art Ever (This Week): Deadwood, Maleficent, Game of Thrones, Samurai Jack, Nausicaa And More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

The MPAA Bans ‘Especially Bad’ ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ Poster Featuring Eva Green

Sin City 2 Poster Eva Green Banned main
Dimension Films/Dark Horse Comics/Frank Miller

The Motion Picture Association of America is less than pleased about a new poster for directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's new Sin City film adaptation, A Dame to Kill For.

The poster depicts the title character, Ava Lord, played by actress Eva Green, wearing a sheer gown that doesn't really cover all that much. Specifially, the MPAA complained about the "curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.” To see all that in the full poster, click through.
