“Call me squeamish, I need a piece of killing done, and I don’t feel like doing it myself.” – Dwight

“FAMILY VALUES”

Frank Miller’s “Sin City: Family Values” was the first Basin City story to be released as a graphic novel, whereas the previous volumes were collections of individual issues. While this is not my favorite volume, it’s still worth checking out if you’re a fan.
