''[[http://hardboiledshaman.com/ Muktuk Wolfsbreath, Hard-Boiled Shaman]]'' is a WebComic by Terry [=LaBan=] that recycles FilmNoir tropes in the context of Siberian tribal life. As [=LaBan=] puts it, "the realization that shamans were kind of like detectives, in that they brought about change by discovering the source of problems, clicked with that classic [[HardboiledDetective hard-boiled]] voice, and, suddenly, there was an idea for a character."

The title character and provider of the [[PrivateEyeMonologue monologue]] is a jaded shaman who takes on the case of a young boy dying of a mysterious supernatural illness, and realizes that the perpetrator is the same evil colleague who once killed his wife and son.
