Dark Horse Presents 5th Anniversary Special - Frank Miller art & cover

Frank Miller
Dark Horse Presents 5th Anniversary Special, 1991 - At over 100 pages, this anniversary special is brimming with original stories and art. Among the more popular features are Concrete (by Paul Chadwick) and Aliens (based on the movie franchise). Frank Miller draws the chaotic wrap-around cover, depicting multiple characters inside. He also authors Give Me Liberty, but his most notable contribution is his first installment of Sin City. Drawn in black and white (like the rest of the contents), this tale introduces Marv, the anti-hero of this film-noir style crime story. Each panel and page is meticulously designed, working in tandem with the superb script. Continued in Dark Horse Presents #51, Miller begins his episodic masterpiece. Other artists in this issue include Matt Wagner. See today's posts or more Miller or Dark Horse Presents issues. See also this blog's Miller checklist.
