Bill Holbrook’s Virtu/Noir App


I was in Washington DC this Memorial Day Weekend for the NCS 69th Annual Reuben Awards. I haven’t been in a couple of years, so it was nice to catch up with a ton of cartoonist friends, many of whom have are working on exciting new projects.

One such project I wanted to give a shout-out to is Bill Holbrook’s interactive Virtu/Noir app, based on his popular comic strip character Dethany from On The Fast Track. Dethany the Corporate Goth takes on the seedy underside of the online environment VirtuNoir in this fun tribute to the world of Dashiell Hammett and Sam Spade. It’s fantastic, and fun, and exactly the kind of thing that has kept Bill relevant in comics for decades.
