Pulp Corner: Stephen Mooney Commission
With this year’s tax return calling my name I decided it was high time to get something that I’ve always wanted, a commission done by a comic book artist. I already knew that it was going to be some kind of dark Film Noir vibe I just had to find the right person to fulfill my idea. I had to look no further than Stephen Mooney, the author and artist behind the recent IDW two fisted pulp bonanza miniseries Half Past Danger. While the series was much more of an old school Indiana Jones type of adventure rather than a dark shadowy Noir I still thought he would be able to pull it off perfectly. Better yet, Half Past Danger already contained it’s own 1940’s Femme Fatale in Agent Elizabeth Huntington Moss who could be transported seamlessly into that world. I recently received the end result and I couldn’t have been more pleased. He absolutely nailed it.
Might I detect a hint of Rita Hayworth from Gilda?
