Sin City is a place of quick justice and slow death, of animal heat and cold blood, where no one hears the screams in the night, but a soft footstep in the wrong part of town echoes like thunder. Sin City: The Babe Wore Red and Other Stories is a collection of three complete tales of the town without pity and the tough guys and hot dames who live there.
In The Customer is Always Right, a man and woman fall in love, but one falls harder than the other. It's true love Sin City style. On the opposite side of the coin, a working girl from Old Town gives her client a quick lesson in business, And What's Behind Door Number Three... isn't something you should negotiate for. And in the lead story, The Babe Wore Red, Dwight finds himself in frighteningly familiar territory with a too-much woman with too few answers, and a fully loaded shotgun aimed at his skull. Sex always makes Dwight stupid, so is he setting himself up for an idiot's death? God only knows.
All three stories have appeared in quiet, little places where you probably couldn't find them, and all three are self-contained. For introducing new readers to the streets of Sin City, or for filling the weeks between issues of The Big Fat Kill, Sin City: The Babe Wore Red can't be beat.
