If it's crap ... We'll tell you
On a dark and stormy night, with the light from a busted neon sign filtering through the blinds and jamming us in the eyes like a white hot poker The League of Extremely Hardboiled Gents (and a couple o' dames with gams that won't quit) will gather to bump gums over all the Noir & crime-themed funny books, picture shows and slots that are hittin' on all eights.
Listen up, you mooks. Not ta put the screws to you, but if you're itching to jam us with your inquisitions you'd best do it with plenty of swift. Don't end up behind the eight-ball, otherwise you'll be tripping for biscuits
Dear the league of extremely ordinary gents and dames,
Many might forget that the first ninja turtles movie actually had a great noir theme to it, mainly reflecting on Raphael in his tan trench coat and top hat. It had a great underbelly feel to it and a darker side to it which made me fall in love with it. Do you think that TMNT should return to its darker roots, if so would you show up to it or do you even care about tmnt to begin with.
While a fan of noir I realize just what a fine edge it walks from passing the line from the cool into the asinine; the extremes of the genre lend themselves to both intentional & unintentional self-parody & satire quite easily. What (if any) cases of this happening has the League ran into & how do they think those crossings have effected the genre?
I would like to ask you a favor on the thirtieth day of November. I want you to answer my question godfathers and godmothers about the business. What is your favorite real-life crime story? Thank you, and If you ever need a favor godfathers and godmothers, you know where to find me. May your family live long, healthy lives.
i have read the Batman: long halloween and "The Damned" by Cullen Bunn and absolutely loved their noire style are there any other noire comics you have loved an would recommend.
thanks and always LONG LIVE THE LEAGUE!!
What Noir film got you first interested in the genre?
Thanks and Long Live the League
Dear League Of Noir Gentlemen
An animation question this week. Who among you remembers Ralph Bakshi's short lived HBO anthology series Spicy City?
It only lasted 6 episodes but I wanted to know if anyone out there remembers it.
Thanks A lot, Your partner in crime TheDVDGrouch.
what's the attraction of the noir genre? Is it the hardboiled characters? Moody settings? Intricate plots?
P.S. Leog is a keen whoopee
My favorite crime drama is: Get rich or Die trying
