Previously: Private detective Jake Riddick returned to the theatre after hours to meet a friend he had made in the course of his investigations. She told him to be back this night, and meet her at the back door, claiming she might have found what he had been looking for.

The Noir Suites and stories I was working on last year seem to have developed a life of their own. Pictures beget pictures, bits of narrative start to add up to a larger story. This seems to bring me closer to my dream of finishing a graphic short story – a noir comic – some day soon.

From that larger story, I’ve already shared some bits and sequences, but it seems to get harder to separate these sequences into six image narratives. So I’ve decided to do a series of “sins” and link them together, and I am very grateful to Toy Photographers for going along with that experiment.
