The aim of this paper is to examine the way the aesthetics of film noir is appropriated by Lourenço Mutarelli in his graphic novel Diomedes: a trilogia do acidente. Torn between an attempt to represent the real and a strong impulse towards stylization, this aesthetics acts as a structuring element of the narrative, creating a world characterized by excess and degradation, from which apparently there is no way out.
