Variety caught up with Sin City director, Frank Miller, who spoke about his upcoming project The Spirit:

When tasked with selecting the right hook from 12 years of The Spirit comics, Miller embraced an old favorite. "It's the story of Sand Saref," he says, referring to a plot that first ran in newspapers on Jan. 8, 1950, full of danger-laced romance, espionage and early germ-warfare elements. "It's about the first love of Spirit's life, who has turned to a life of crime, and he has to bring her to justice."

The choice holds special significance for Miller, who has cited Saref as an inspiration for the popular Elektra character he created for the Daredevil comic.
