Dark Horse Presents #54 - Frank Miller, John Byrne art


Dark Horse Presents v1 #54, 1991 - After disposing of two hit men, Marv gets closer to why he was framed for a prostitute's murder. Frank Miller begins Sin City episode five with two back-to-back splashes of a cowgirl stripper. The illustrations has a beautiful abstract quality to them, reminiscent of Wassily Kandisky. The remaining pages are more typically violent, accentuated by the artist's harsh lighting and contrasts. In the same issue, John Byrne introduces the Next Men, a group of young people just starting to explore their super abilities. While less jarring and innovative, Byrne's artwork is no less well drawn. Other artists in this issue include Gray Morrow. This is number 1 of 4 Dark Horse Presents issues with Byrne art and/or covers and number 4 of 12 Dark Horse Presents issues with Miller art and/or covers.
