The first four volumes of Dark Horse's new Sin City trade paperback editions are now scheduled to street February 16th, 2005.  Three of these volumes (The Hard Goodbye, The Big Fat Kill, and That Yellow Bastard) are the stories on which the Sin City movie, premiering April 1st, is based.  The fourth volume is A Dame to Kill For. 


The new 6' x 9' Chip Kidd-designed editions were originally scheduled to start shipping in January (see 'Sin City Movie Debuts April 1st').  The February 16th street dates gives a narrow six-week window before the release of the film.
