** Most of the characters in "The Last of the Innocent" are grown-up versions of characters from Franchise/ArchieComics transplanted into a noir setting and subjected to a process of {{deconstruction}}. A private detective also appears who is a grown-up version of Encyclopedia Brown. There's also a businessman who appears to be a grown-up version of Richie Rich.
