"Basin City" is set in an unspecified, fictional city in the American west according to various sources. Though he has never said it's based on a particular city, given Frank Miller's love of noir (Hollywood influence) and the genesis of the comic during the "gritty" 1990s while he was living in Los Angeles, it's likely that Los Angeles was the model.
