Old-fashioned noir is getting a rebirth in comics with the arrival next month of Triggerman, a new series from Hard Case Crime in collaboration with Titan Comics. Written by Matz and Walter Hill, with art by Jef, Triggerman tells the story of a gangland killer who's released from jail for one last job, but all he wants to do is find the woman he loved.
As you may have already 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.
