Frank Miller, the creator and writer of Sin City, has never specified that his iconic comic is set in particular US city. But all the clues point to Los Angeles. Miller’s love of Hollywood film noir and multiple geographical references (such as the ‘Santa Yolanda Tar Pits’, based on the La Brea Tar Pits in LA) point towards the City of Angels.
