To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Frank Miller’s Sin City series, Dark Horse will release new softcover editions of each volume starting in September with The Hard Goodbye.
These new editions will be presented at their original size, with new wrap-around cover art and a pinup gallery featuring a variety of artists, including Joyce Chin, Amanda Conner, Klaus Janson, Paul Pope, Philip Tan and Gerardo Zaffino.
“Frank Miller’s association with Dark Horse has flourished for over 30 years,” said Dark Horse founder and publisher Mike Richardson. “The original publication of Sin City was a watershed moment for our company, and we are very pleased to celebrate its 30th anniversary with a brand-new edition. Readers will find that Sin City is just at powerful today as it was the day it was first released, exactly what you would expect from one of comics’ master creators.”
In addition, Dark Horse also plans to release deluxe editions of the new volumes, which will be hardcovers and will includes an exclusive sketchbook of never-before-published development art selected by Miller, as well as a slipcase.
“When I first decided to write and draw a black and white crime comic, Mike Richardson didn’t blink,” Miller said. “We were off and running and continue to do so 30 years later.”
Frank Miller’s Sin City Volume: 1 The Hard Goodbye will arrive in comic shops Sept. 29 and in bookstores Oct. 12. Subsequent volumes will be released over the course of the following months. The softcover edition will retail for $25, while the deluxe edition will cost $100.
