Review by wendellg
like the previous 3 titles in this series: horrible, in the sense of "provoking horror." extremely well-done, very chilling and very intriquing.

Review by lithicbee
Amazing artwork, great noir story. 'Nuff said.
Review by Radaghast
Violent, graphic and ultimately entertaining. Sit back and enjoy, if you need a session of mindless action.

This book is probably twice as thick as the other books in this series (at least so far), but it’s so gripping that I didn’t even notice the length once I started reading. That Yellow Bastard opens up with clean cop Hartigan finishing up his last day on the job. Looking forward to retirement and the “easy life,” the future seems bright until Hartigan rescues 11-year-old Nancy Callahan after she’s been kidnapped by the child-molesting Roark Junior. Because his father is a powerful senator, Junior is never even accused of the crime, and Hartigan spends the next eight years going to every extreme to protect Nancy. This book is the oldest in the series’ chronology, taking place sometime before the opening of The Hard Goodbye, so readers of the series will enjoy the cameos of old favorites including Marv, Dwight, Lucille, and of course the younger version of Nancy. I found Hartigan’s desire to do the right thing and his loving protection of Nancy very moving, and the illustrations in this book are particularly striking. There seems to be more focus on details and more interesting placements of panels than in the previous three books, while still keeping the noir feel that marks Sin City. In addition, this time around, Miller adds splashes of vibrant yellow to the otherwise black and white illustrations.
