The Dennis ‘D-Man’ Dunphy Memorial Awards: ComicsAlliance’s Best Comics of 2012, Part 3


We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon...

8 of the Best Noir Comics: Crime Does Pay


With last week's release of L.A. Noire -- the latest blockbuster video game from Grand Theft Auto creators Rockstar Games -- there's been a sudden spike in interest in hard-boiled crime stories. Stand-up tough-guys dealing with corruption and vice, faithless lovers plotting murderous betrayals, and twisted secrets dragged into the light? Who wouldn't want to see more of that stuff?

And fortunately, those are all things that comics do very well. They may have been eclipsed by super-heroes, but comics and crime have gone together ever since EC comics put two staples into their books. Even the first adult-oriented graphic novel -- Arnold Drake, Leslie Waller and Matt Baker's It Rhymes With Lust -- was a noir-inspired crime story. So if you've been spending a little time tooling around Los Angeles in 1947 with detective Cole Phelps and found yourself wanting for more, ComicsAlliance has you covered. Today, we've picked out a few of Our All-Time Favorite Noir Comics!
