The Case Files Of P.I. Charles

The Case Files Of P.I. Charles

P.I. Charles is a graphic novel I created for a project on narrative. Set in modern day New York, it follows a robotic private detective who believes he is in a 1940s Film Noir and has no understanding of human emotions. Inspired by trashy Pulp Novels, hard boiled detectives and a fondness of telling stories.

Charles' cases range from the absurd to the gritty and adult, as his apathy clashes with the emotionally fuelled world of humanity.
