Alterna Comics: Tinsel Town

Recommended Posts

How about this for a strong female lead: David Lucarelli's Tinsel Town! What is it about? Here is the official description: "In 1915, Abigail Moore became one of the first female police officers in Hollywood. But beneath the glamorous surface of Tinseltown beats a rotten heart full of corruption, greed, and lies, and Abigail's about to dive head-first into all of it."

That means it probably has some truth to it. Hollywood at that time was basically an industrial wrinkle in the still very Wild West. The younger gunsligners were not even gray yet. Hollywood was the exact opposite of its current economic poltical identity, but the nasty social aspects were already forming around its monopolistic power. It was fiercely libertarian because New York’s stolid protectionism over Edison’s patents over film cameras. American Film began there (and independent film festivals are still big there to this day), but Hollywood was the refuge camp for young people with cinematic ideas. It’s a rich historical period to build off of. Big issue with the concept is that as a writer I would want to use real cinema history and real cinema stories. I am not sure how much of that would be in the public domain. Like the film makers fleeing from Patent-Mad Eddy, we still have to suffer through the pains of copyright.
