I’m not going to lie to you. I’m stealing dialogue straight out of two of Frank Miller’s Sin City stories – A Dame to Kill For and The Babe Wore Red.

That line about the microwave popcorn, however… That’s all me.

I hate to explain the joke, but the idea is to blend the gritty noir of Miller’s work with the sublime mundane aspects of suburban couple hood. Not a lot of panels to do that with, so I hope you get the gist of it.

Sorry for not uploading an incentive sketch on Monday, but buzzComix was down (as per usual nearing the end of the month). I’m making up for it today, though. Vote for Theater Hopper and absorb my rendition of Marv from the Sin City books. Portrayed by an almost unrecognizable Mickey Rourke in the upcoming movie.

Are you excited to see Sin City on Friday? You should be. I personally have high expectations for this film. I’ve been a fan of Miller’s for a long time. I hope it doesn’t disappoint.

Of course, as I mentioned on Monday, I’ll be seeing Sin City after I’ve attended the first day of the Kansas City Planet Comicon comic book convention. My partners-in-crime will be none other than Mitch Clem and Zach Miller.

I sincerely hope you have a chance to stop by our booth on Artist’s Alley if you’re in the neighborhood. Keep your eyes peeled for the 2′ by 4′ vinyl banner with the Theater Hopper logo. It’s bright red and you can’t miss it.

Her mouth was wet and warm and hungry.

Wanna split a bag of microwave popcorn?

I had wrongly anticipated she would say something different.
