Explore the dark side of mystery in Dark Horse's "Noir: A Collection of Crime Stories"
Sometimes, a comic will have a title that is just so perfect that you can’t imagine it being called anything else. It tells you everything you need to know about the book in your hands, with a title that’s snappy, memorable, and rolls right off the tongue.
But these perfect titles don’t need to be flowery or orotund to be great. No, sometimes simplicity is the way to achieve perfect poetry.
Like Noir: A Collection of Crime Comics. That tells you all that it’s about, right there.
It’s in black and white.
There are crime stories.
Oh, and it has work from some of the best creators in the business, like Ed Brubaker, Joëlle Jones, Jeff Lemire, and Sean Phillips.
If this sounds like your kind of tome, then check out the details below.
