RE: Noir

Cover Image

I think a good theme for a collaboration would be the noir genre. Either hardboiled- which typically features an outside force (police, detective) solving a crime, or straight noir (no outside forces- the protagonist is somehow linked to the crime) or a mix of both. Noir offers the reader a lot of archetypical characters (if you have seen RegularJOEs fantastic performance in "Brick" you can see these in action!) such as the hardboiled detective, the femme fatale, the ingenue, the sidekick, the thug, the kingpin... A lot of RECorders have already created along the lines of this theme and I think it would be interesting to see it expanded!
