Added DiffLines:

* FemmeFatale: Surprisingly, mostly {{averted}} for a comic so steeped in 1950s FilmNoir. Of Blacksad's love interests, Natalia Wilford is TheLostLenore for Blacksad whose worst crime was being a bit of a vain woman, and Alma Mayer is a BrainyBrunette NiceGirl. [[MeaningfulName Jezebel]] Karup sort of fits the archetype, but is really a subversion of the trope since the person she seduced to lead him to his doom is not the detective hero but the leader of a racist lynch mob [[spoiler:who also happens to be her father]].
