#13 Party Girl, PI

| November 11, 2010 | 2 Comments

Another old one gets reworked and hits the light of day after 14 years of sitting in a drawer.

Concept: Many moons ago, I used to hit bars, mostly to see my friend’s bands play.  And somewhere, there was always the hippest of hipster girls, looking too smart for her own good, that was both stylish and sexy. I always wondered what these party girls would do for work, and in the back of my mind, I thought, “Wouldn’t it be great if she was a detective?”  Well, two things happened around the same time: I saw the movie, Party Girl, with Parker Posey, on tape and the Michael Alig/Angel Melendez murder. The latter hit home because Angel’s body was found around the area I was living in. So, I really thought about how my Party Girl, PI would solve his murder.

Design: It’s all pretty much in the concept.  Chelle Parker, aka Party Girl, PI just needs to be stylish, hip, and sexy.  The glasses are for work mode.  She has to look like she is hitting the club immediately after doing some fact checking.  She’s Modesty Blaise or Dakota North with a bar tab.  A heavy bar tab.

About the Author ()

I'm not exactly sure what I should put here, so here goes. I'm a writer, written for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, AdHouse Books, and Simon & Schuster, among others and his stories have been reprinted in other countries. Mostly concentrating on creator owned work right now, so the challenge suits me just fine. I live in Queens (Astoria/LIC), NY with my wife, Michelle, and two dogs, Kasey and Kirby. I'm not sure what else needs to be said, but I'm sure I'll keep changing this. Oh, here's something. I contribute to the Project Rooftop site. The RetroFix column was kind of my idea, so I feel like that experience will help me out here.

  1. The spiderweb patterns on her tights are an unusual touch. Is there a significance?

  2. Not at all. The idea is that she is fashionable and trendy, so it really has no bearing on who she is, or anything like that.
