Web comics, baby. That's where it's at.

The web has kicked detective pulp fiction loose from the confines of alleged market demands and big-time publishing, and the same thing's happening in comics, in a very big way.

It's an exciting time, with fresh voices and new visions suddenly gaining a world-wide audience. The Thrilling Detective Web Site is proud to help kick out the jams, and present some of the best of the new breed, updated here regularly.

The Continentals
by
Darryl Hughes & Monique MacNaughton

The Continentals follows the adventures of Continental Operatives Jeffrey Tiffen Smythe and his partner, the gender-bending, swash-buckling Lady Fiona Fiziwiggs, as they stalk the mean streets of Victorian England, hot on the trail of the perpetrator of a series of brutal "mangling" murders that have plunged the city of Mansfordshire into an abyss of fear. It's a real mash-up, combining detective fiction, action/adventure, historical drama, gothic horror, science fiction, and even steampunk.
Frequency: Weekly.

Odd Jobs
by Timothy Broderick

Thrilling Detective Comics is proud to present Odd Jobs, a great new web comic written and drawn by Tim Broderick. This slice-of-life strip follows the adventurers of David DiAngelo, a man who earns his living doing those "odd jobs" nobody else wants to, a sort of Travis McGee for the new millennium. It's smart, it's quirky, and it may break your heart. The fourth arc "Children of the Revolution" is currently running.
Frequency: Weekly.

ARCHIVED
Velda, Girl Detective: Velda Goes on a Treasure Hunt
by Raoul Molnar and Ron Miller

Everyone's (or at least my) favourite stripper-turned-P.I., Velda Bellinghausen, decides life is not necessarily a day at the beach. A tantalizing sneak peek at the upcoming Velda: Girl Detective #3, presented to celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2005.




The Dingus
by Christopher Mills & Joe Staton

Like Femme Noir? Check out this eight-part story arc, featuring Port Nocturne's Mike Hammer-ish private eye, Red "Rusty" Nales, and the villainous K. Burton Smythe (where does he come up with these ridiculous names?). "The Dingus" saw print in AC Comics' Femforce #121 in the Fall of 2003, but visitors to this site were able to catch the whole thing right here.

ON HIATUS

Femme Noir by Christopher Mills and Joe Staton

From the creator of private eye Matthew Dain and the co-creator of Mike Mauser comes the dark tales of a very shady lady, the mysterious Femme Noir. The strip is a funky blend of hard-boiled crime, and good ol' retro four-colour excitement. Catch the spirit!

Dick Hammer by Chris Wisnia

Hot-tempered, foul-mouthed, crotch-scratching DICK HAMMER is a private skulk working the web comic mean streets of Crude Bay, Southern California. Yeah, Crude Bay. But don't let the the fact that artist/writer/creator Chris Wisnia apparently has his tongue wedged firmly in his cheek fool ya -- this is the stuff hard-boiled private eye dreams are made of.

Detective Fork by Kevin J. Guhl

Okay, okay -- he may not always be the shiniest piece of cutlery in the drawer, but Silver City's own private eye Detective Fork somehow manages to get the job done, in this heart-felt spoof by artist/writer Kevin J. Guhl that should please fans of hard-boiled detective fiction and eating utensils everywhere.
