This line includes the usual 10 archetypes and was finished back in 2011. The line is meant to be a pure film noir with no elements of fantasy or sci fi. You have all the archetypes of classic film noir: old disillusioned detective, reporters, dirty cops, the mob, the femme fatale, the private detective, etc. A great side note to this line occurred back in 2012 when Patton Oswalt shared it with the late, great Roger Ebert who then tweeted about it.
