Just watched "Murder my Sweet" with Dick Powell as Philip Marlowe last week. I'd only seen him in the Busby Berkeley stuff, so it was a shock to see him hard boiled. I kept expecting him to burst into a love song and dance off. In honor of the San Francisco Noir Festival at the Castro Theatre, and my own love of the genre, particularly Raymond Chandler novels and the like, I'm creating a mini comic series about Pigeon detectives and reporters, set in the 1930's. Here are my main characters, Phil and Jake.
