Returning to ‘Sin City’: a chat with Frank Miller
Miller presses on, critics be damned. He’s a bit of a crank, after all, and will proudly call himself “a prick” in front of an audience of die-hard fans at Comic-Con.

We sat down with Miller to talk about the new film, his influence, and when Sin City 3 will come out.
