Comic Books


The surprise hit of 2012 continues! FATALE‘s first arc veers dangerously toward its crushing end… all the pieces are in place, Josephine and her lover are prepared to execute their plan, but only one of them knows what kind of men (or demons) they’re dealing with. Nothing will go as planned, and there will be blood.

And remember, FATALE is packed with extras – text pieces, art, paintings – that are only included in the printed comics, so don’t miss an issue!

  1. Still very much enjoying this series.

  2. Me too, I think I might pull out 1-3 and brush-up before Wednesday. It’s funny, because just like with Criminal I am nearly as excited for the bonus prose piece in the back as I am for the issue itself. So far they have been really cool, and I appreciate the fact that Bru and Phillips do it special for us Wednesday kids (adults, whatever.)

  3. Brubaker has really made it a bonus to buy the issues with those prose pieces. I wish he had put them in the big hardcover though, but i guess it’s a royalties nightmare. I’m still kind of waiting for this story to grab me, but i have faith in brubaker that it will.

    • Nothing to do with royalties — it’s Brubaker’s way to get people to buy issues instead of trades. He does the same thing with CRIMINAL.

    • I believe it was in a Wordballoon interview after the HC came out that brubaker said it was for both reasons. He really wants people to buy the issues, but yes contacting everyone again and figuring out royalties for the collection would be a pain. And just for the record I’m not trying to be a dink here, just saying what i heard.

  4. Directly taken from Sin City?

  5. I’ve been enjoying this series so far, but not totally loving it. Phillips art has been great, and Brubaker’s clearly setting things up, but after three issues I needed a hook to dig into my cheek.

    After reading this issue, I’m hooked.

    And the prose piece at the end was FANTASTIC. I realllly want Brubaker and Phillips’ next project to be a biographical OGN or mini-series about the man that inspired Chandler’s Phillip Marlowe.

  6. what i like about these books is you do have to go back a reread as there are going to be little things (clues and hints) that you would have missed 1st time and that can allow you to think differantly about the out come – smart writing great art work and gripping story telling make this a must read!!!!
