Chriss | 8 comments I'm always looking for new noir or hardboiled detective graphic novel titles.

On my shelf right now I've got:
Sam Noir: Samurai Detective
The Damned, vol 1, Three Days Dead
The Simping Detective

Anyone have any interesting recommendations for noir and hardboiled detective titles?

Cullen | 3 comments Hey there! Have you tried Brubaker's CRIMINAL?

I'm glad you liked, THE DAMNED, by the way. That book was a lot of fun to write.

Sadie (librarianwombat) | 6 comments I loved Fell by Warren Ellis/ illustrated by Ben Templesmith. The artwork is amazing (he did 30 Days of Night) and the story is really good too, very noir very hardboiled but without being cliche.

Sean Little (seanpatricklittle) I second Sadie. "Fell" is excellent, and if you're looking for something original in the noir vein, try the "Hatter M" series. I forget the writers, but Templesmith does the art. It's very unique and has a great fantasy noir edge.

Bryan More pulp than noir, Sandman Mystery Theater creates excellent atmosphere with nice period detail. And the art is great.
