In this strip, I wanted to subvert the typical trope of the tough, adventurous detective and the damsel-in-distress who comes to him for help. Girls like Chapel would make just as tough detectives as men! That’s why in this case, I wanted it to be Barnaby who was asking Chapel for help, rather than the other way around. Girls – you don’t have to be the damsel in distress! Be the detective instead!
oh yeah -- totally!

I love the older/more realistic chapel in panel 3! She looks awesome!

There should be a mini series of Noir comics....that'd be awesome...:)

Haha, maybe someday...

Ooh, that would be fun...I don't know what the plot of the game would be, though!

Maybe it could be a 'Chapel detective game' with a kidnapped Rupert, a mysterious villain named Fred, and Assistant Barnaby.....^_^

I'm glad you like it!

I really liked your b/w style for the noire-story, especially the way Chapel looks in the 3rd frame. This was a great story. I love it when we get glimpses of how her imagination shapes her reality.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it! And yes, that's what I aim to do for sure -- showing the process of Chapel's imagination through the visuals in the comic.

Yay! Didn't Chapel's mom lose her reader glasses in another strip where Chapel dressed up as Sherlock?
Anyways, Great job Emma! The style is so cool, and I like the message that you're sending out...
Miss L.S.P 5/9/14
Yes, she did! I was wondering if anyone would catch that. Chapel's mom just CAN'T hold on to those glasses.

Thank you. I always believe in subverting tropes of the weak girl/strong man. It's just not reality!
 Emma  5/9/14
Yay first comment!
I love this Emma!
I like the last panel most of all.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it.
