[The first Sin City] may not have been great, but at least it was new. But that was 2005, and never before has quite so much time passed in just nine years. That’s long enough for one Spider-Man franchise to end, and another to begin and self-destruct. For better or worse, the world of graphic novel adaptations has evolved almost as drastically as the world beyond them. What was once novel has now become suffocatingly ubiquitous, and what was tolerable has now become insufferably regressive.
