is it just me or was sin city totally inspired by the b&w down by law / tom waits aesthetic?

There may be a similarity, but Sin City's primary influence is Miller's comics, pure and simple. Plus, you know, the logical exaggeration of noir.

Mmm, you'll have to ask Miller that. I doubt Tom Waits was an influence (it doesn't seem that similar to me apart from the b&w) but Down by Law could well be. I haven't seen it to judge.

In my opinion, it was the romanticism of film noir aesthetic (think The Maltese Falcon) combined with the action from the post-<a href = "http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095016/>Die Hard</a> era.
