Webcomic: Muktuk Wolfsbreath Hard Boiled Shaman

Muktuk Wolfsbreath, Hard-Boiled Shaman is a Web Comic by Terry LaBan (artist of the newspaper comic, Edge City) that recycles Film Noir 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 hard-boiled voice, and, suddenly, there was an idea for a character."

The title character and provider of the 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.

There was a paper comic book miniseries, too!
