So I've been having this vivid idea in my head that I've been fleshing out for a while now. But as you may guess from the title, it involves a mixture of Noir themes, as well as some Science Fiction, and heavy environmental comedy. Basically I was hoping someone could provide some insight into genre combinations. I don't actually have much experience with Noir style, but for this particular plot, I feel it fits perfectly as the foundation. To give you an example. The main character is a "Reaper". He is sort of a freelance detective that works in hunting down rogue spirits that have escaped judgement. The setting is a dark, industrial super-cityscape that exists between worlds in the multiverse. Because of this there is a massive assortment of difference species, creatures, and beings ranging from mundane to absurd. Part of the comedy is in the actual absurdity of some of these characters, however that very absurdity won't be addressed in the story. For everyone in this world, these bizarre features are commonplace, and don't stand out as bizarre at all. Case point being the main character lives in a condo where the elevator assistant is named B.B. That stands for Burning Bush. He is quite literally...a living...bush....with pyrokinetic abilities. Thanks for reading. I'd appreciate any thoughts on this. I'd really appreciate if anyone is aware of good examples of this having already been employed. I'd love to read something along these lines to see how it can be executed properly.
