These quotes come from Ed Brubaker, the author of many a noir comics masterpiece. He tweeted both of these last Friday (June 3rd), and I just knew that I had to share them for my next noir quotes segment. The first:
“Every Friday I’m going to teach one thing about noir on Twitter. It’ll be the same lesson over and over again.”
and the second:
“Noir is about character, the plot doesn’t matter as much as you think it does. It’s just a vehicle.”
I LOVE the first noir quote simply because its so funny. Almost every piece of noir crime fiction teaches the same lessons, because every anti-hero makes the same mistakes. And if you know anything about Brubaker, you know that his writing lives and dies by the both of these statements. Keep reading noir! Enter the Criminal Giveaway if you haven’t already!
