In this episode the team diverge from routine and instead discuss the three remaining volumes in the Sin City library not adapted into film. MangaMatt gives his all as he pontificates on author, Frank Miller, and the trends and style choices in his works. Jeronimo and Andrew find it hard to recall specific short stories, as many meld into the overall world of crime-ridden, Basin City. All leads bring them to the final showdown of "Hell and Back,” the last and most radical Sin City story in the pantheon. Guzzle booze, squeeze a broad, and bite the bullet in this all-inclusive Grind Pulp Podcast exploration of a legendary run by a writing great.

This episode features MangaMatt's movie selection, Sin City, along with its younger sibling, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Lines are drawn in the sand over which story was the best in these hyper-gritty and ultra-noir crime stories with a twist of weird. How do these movies compare to their comic panel progenitors? Is the sequel worth seeing? Will MangaMatt ever be allowed to run the movie projector at the Devil's Gate Mall again?
Answers to these questions can be found in an episode worth killing for, worth dying for, and worth going to hell for. Amen.
Sin City (2005) directed by Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino
