Brodieman,

Do you know if the "complete" Sin City graphic novel will include all of the books?

I think I just wet myself...

Although, if it is the first graphic novel, I'm kind of apprensive about buying it because I already own that one. I really don't want to spend $39.99 if alot of that extra cost is because of the graphic novel.

Not too sure how that will play out... I remember seeing it opening weekend with a packed house, but I don't really want to relive the audience's "Whooos!" or "Yeahs!" in my living room.

Still an awesome set of features I can't wait for (and I finally get to read one of the novels!)

Anyone know (or know where I can find out) if this is coming to R2?
Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.

I asked some of the very harangued staff in HMV a couple of weeks ago, and as far as they know, there are no plans to release a special edition here. They did say it could happen, but no idea when :?

I hope they do release it over here, although I'm tempted to order it from the US ...
Statler: Well, how do you like the film?
Waldorf: I've seen detergents leave a better film than this.
