The Art of Noir: Hard Case Unveils Covers for ‘Triggerman’ and ‘Peepland’ #2
As you may have heard, Titan Comics is teaming with crime novel publisher Hard Case Crime for a new line of Noir comics this fall. The first two books are Triggerman by Walter Hill, Matz, and Jef, a classic prohibition noir series, and Peepland by Christa Faust, Gary Phillips, and Andrea Camerini, a punk-inflected neo-noir set in the world of sex work.
Hard Case and Titan have now revealed the covers for the second issues of these books, which will have three covers apiece.
Triggerman #2 features the work of Alex Ronald, Steve Scott, and Dennis Calero. Peepland #2 has covers by Chris Wahl, Will Conrad, and Alex Shibao. The Triggerman covers all feature classic hardboiled period crime imagery, while the Peepland covers all feature barely concealed breasts.
