Hi. I am working on a graphic novel with my brother. I was wondering if you knew of any references for writing comic noir or neo-noir/noir fiction. Thanks.

This genre is often urban and gritty. The morality of noir is ambiguous and the tone is dark, cynical, and corrupt. Noir has a pessimistic style and voice. X

THE STORY OF A SPARROW…

They say the city’s a roost for every bird.

Detective Chirpums is more than happy to disagree with that.  Almost as much as he is downing a bottle of Grackle’s Finest in one sitting.

He’s the city’s best detective.  He’s the city’s only detective.  Because someone had to.

And he’s got a new case.  It’s his only chance at paying rent for the month.  And not unlike too many of his cases, this one comes with a dame in sheep’s clothing.

DEMO + FULL GAME

You can get both the demo and the full game of Detective Chirpums here!  Compatible for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

DEVELOPER NOTES

Birds!  Noir!  Puzzles!  Hardboiled lines that never end!  Everything that’s good in the world.  It’s all in this game, which I hope you guys enjoy.

Have fun sleuthing!

Quick announcement: Good news! I just acquired a scanner and will now be able to share edits of images from my extensive collection of movie books. I’ll still be posting GIFs, of course, but I thought this would make for a nice change of pace every so often.
