There has been an abundance of crime comics published over the past several months — see, for example, the Two Guys’ earlier discussions of Weird Detective, ControlKill or Be Killed, Cousin Joseph, Black  Monday Murders, and Sombra — but recently this number has been almost dizzying. In the first of a two-episode series devoted to current crime comics, Andy and Derek discuss six titles that take the genre into curious directions. They range from the historical (Rick Geary’s Black Dahlia), to the formula-bending (Chris Hunt’s Carver: A Paris Story and Janet Harvey and Megan Levens’s Angel City), to the genre-blending (Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso’s Moonshine), to the comedic (Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber’s The Fix), to the truly hardboiled (Walter Hill, Matz, and Jef’s Triggerman as well as Christa Faust, Gary Philips, and Andrea Cameron’s Peepland). There is a lot of crime/detective/noir/procedural goodness packed into this show, and the same is in store for the next week’s episode, the second in the series.

The incidental music in this episode is from classic crime TV shows, and you can find these theme songs in Television’s Greatest Hits, Vol. 1Television’s Greatest Hits, Vol. 3Television’s Greatest Hits Vol. 4, and Television’s Greatest Hits, Vol. 6. Check out the fun!
