Suspense was a tricky topic for me. The first thing that came to mind was Hitchcock but I didn't want to go with my first inclination. The other thing that came to mind was film noir or just the "noir" genre. I have really been enjoying Darwyn Cook's take on the Parker novels and love the flat blue colors he has thrown into the noir mix and this topic seemed like a good excuse to finally try my hand at that.
Noir has been a genre I am interested in and one day I might just have to do a story with it.
