Review by wendellg
At first I was dubious of this book as a collection of shorts - but I found it to be interesting in relation to the other books in the series.I'm even more impressed after reading it a second time: the way the short stories fit together - in relation to each other and the larger Sin City universe - is masterful. Ditto for the compactness of the stories.And I've forgotten how truly horrifying these stories are - how well-done they are...

Unlike the other Sin City books so far, this book isn’t one consistent story but a bunch of short vignettes. Some of the characters, like Dwight and Marvin, are familiar faces, but the rest are new. For these reasons, I couldn’t really get into the stories too much. They were over too quickly for me to get to really like or dislike a character, understand their motivations, or even understand the point of the story (i.e., what is the given reason for a character to kill another, let alone what their underlying motivation for that killing is). The illustrations, however, are as good as usual, with the addition of an occasional splash of blue, red, or pink in some of the stories. Overall though, this is the only one of the series so far that has been disappointing.

A hodgepodge of short stories, but I like the way some of them link to earlier stories from this series.
Review by adpaton
The Sin City series is horrendously expensive here in South Africa: I bought Booze, Broads and Bullets because it was remarkably cheaper than the other volumes. Idiot. There's always a reason something costs less.I did not care for this at all: given I like the sort of story arc we find in Preacher, spreading over multi-volumes, a collection of brief stories amounting to nothing is guaranteed to make me unhappy. Some of the characters from the film and from the other books are here - notably Marv - but volume six was an expensive disappointment to me.
