    Much appreciated! I didn't want to read them because I wanted to be fresh for the movie, but I got a little curious and decided to just check out a little of the art. So much for that plan. I was immediately wrapped up and couldn't stop reading until I was done. I'm not even a comic reader!

    I'm even more excited than I was for the movie now!

    Oh yeah, and Big Fat Kill seems to be corrupt. I tried downloading it twice and neither time worked.

    0kelvin: Thanks for letting me know, I'm reloading it right now. I've never had once read the Sin City Comics until I heard about the movie being released, but I've heard alot about Frank Miller from his batman comics. I was also captivated by the storyline and art. I'll edit my previous post once the files are back. Thanks again!

    I don't mean to be a party pooper, but is this not illegal?

    Well you can say that, but you can also state that the Loomis pdf's are also illegal, but I'm "preserving a work of art" wink wink, If any of the admin ask me to erase this thread I will do as they say, just trying to help people with view of the Sin City movie, and maybe give em som inspiration in dynamic compositions.

    The problem is that these aren't books that have been out of print for twenty years or only available in other countries. Basically there's no difference between this and shoplifting them off the shelves of a bookstore. Whatever.

    Hmm that reminds me of my teen years, well I guess it carried itself into my adult years. For people who weren't able to grab "The Big Fat Kill" story grab em now, I'll have these up until the movie starts April 1st.

    I also love MP3s cause they are illegal....I just love being illegal

    HOLY...!!



    Only problem though is that all the ones after the top links don't work.



    Either way, just getting one of them though...

    You are the man.

    I'm really curious how, as an artist yourself, you justify to yourself placing these online. All of these comics are available for purchase at your local comic book store. Part of that money goes to Frank Miller who, like most of us here want to do, makes a living off of his art and writing. While part of me certainly agrees that it's possible someone might read one or more of these stories and become so enamoured that they'd rush out and buy the rest, you've still uploaded 3 complete graphic novels of his, which pretty much rules out that as your intent.

    I just don't get it.

    Forest I sure don't get it either, trust me. It was my intent after reading all three that I was so excited to share the same feeling I had with the love of the comic with everyone. People could go to the comic shop and buy the comics but the original would have cost them so much money that they would probably shy away from buying it. I believe the originals are worth 25 and up in mint conditions, so that's 75 bucks for 3 comics. Book stores are selling soft cover prints for 18 bucks and up for each, the last time I checked at Borders, they can probably get them cheaper for 12 bucks each. It would cost them too much money to find out what it was like to be swept into his world. After seeing that almost 200 people had downloaded the comics I'm hoping that the comic would interest them so much, that they would see the movie and hopefully find out other comics written by Frank Miller. But yeah I know it's not an excuse to do something illegal, but oh well, right now my mind is just stuck on it. Come April 1st and it'll be deleted Thanks for your feedback Forest I do appreciate it.

    I'm downloading it from your site right now and if I enjoy it as much as iI think I will, I will buy the graphic novel to add to my comic book collection. Thanx a lot dude. I appreciate your efforts completely, this is awesome.

    After I saw the thread HERE on CA.Org, I PURCHASED "Sin City", "A Dame to Kill For", "The Big Fat Kill", and "That Yellow Bastard." They were definitely worth it, and I have the old covers
