May 21, 2013 12:23 am This is going to be one of the covers of the week. It is known.
May 21, 2013 12:20 am I wouldn't say Fatale is so much about Lovecraft style occultism as it is an exploration of the femme fatale archetype using a horror backstory to explain her charismatic effect on the men she meets. In practice the story seems to me to be straight up noir crossed with classic horror. I think BPRD leans a LOT more on the Lovecraft tradition than Fatale has (so far).
May 21, 2013 12:08 am Supergirl was good & so was the last issue. I read them because it's where Power Girl gets her classic costume back. But I was pleasantly surprised by the witty writing and beautiful art. I think I'm ready to add this to my pull list if the creative team remains stable.
May 18, 2013 2:11 am Half the fun of the comments are these out of left field hijackings by comic nerds who think they are the final arbiter of good taste & intelligent analysis.
May 17, 2013 8:24 pm Or,,,, both could be true! :P
May 9, 2013 1:03 am It must be opposite week for me because it seems like everyone else liked it and this is my least favorite issue of this series so far. I even liked part one, but I felt the art in this wasn't up to the standards I've seen previously. The story just seemed to be one long slugfest featuring some hellaciously long speeches by Clayface. Bring on another long Snyder arc; I prefer those.

April 25, 2013 6:58 pm You're a lot more enthusiastic about this book than I am. Let's just say that I don't like Millar's 'voice' as I've read it here. I knew that Kick Ass and other of his creator owned books were not to my taste (due to subject matter and graphic violence), so I never bought or read them. If you're a Millar fan and dig what he does, just consider that this is a case of different tastes in comics. There's room for everyone under the big top tent of funnybooks.
April 25, 2013 10:42 am I'm open to the historical parallel analogies if I thought they had been handled better. The stiff clunker-filled dialogue really killed the delivery of the message for me though. He seems a lot more at home in the scenes where the spoiled brat superkids are doing drugs and abusing groupies.
April 25, 2013 1:04 am First Millar book I've purchased. I bought it for the art. But i won't be buying #2 thanks to the ultra trite dialogue. He actually uses the "with great power" line with no sense of irony or self awareness. And the political speechifying was painful; striving to make the story feel relevant when it's just a superhero comic not literary fiction.
