The surprise hit of 2012 continues! Fatale’s first arc comes to 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. This is a book that really benefits from multiple reads.

    • Oh yeah! I’m looking forward to re-reading this arc over the weekend. I’m actually pretty excited to see what this month’s backmatter essay is about — those things are great!

  2. “The surprise hit of 2012 continues!” LOL

  3. Trade waiting.

    • Enjoy the 85% of a book you get;)

    • Trade waiting = Comic Book Killing. Please stop.

    • @JokersNuts: Untrue. Especially at Image.

    • Nonetheless, trade waiting on this title in particular means you miss all the SPECTACULAR back content, which they don’t reprint in the trade collections.

    • I’m trade waiting as well. I bought the first two issues, mainly because everyone was talking about the backmatter, and while it was interesting it was nothing new or mind blowing. You can find the same analytical essays about Poe and Lovecraft, and in most cases even more in depth and insightful ones in the introduction to any collection of their short story collections. I found all the bouncing between characters and timeframes a little confusing and think this will read mich better in trade. The backmatter wasn’t worth being confused.

  4. Best issue since #1. Fantastic end to the first arc.

  5. This book was my introduction to digital, which is great, but I’m enjoying it so much I might have to hunt down the paper issues.

  6. Think I’m going to be the minority here, but I find this series a little slow & dare I say it a bit boring!

    Sorry everyone it’s just not for me.

  7. The pacing is a little slow at times and this is definitely a series that benefits from reading issues back to back. Single issues don’t really stand on their own as much, but I love it. Sean Phillips is one of my favorite artists and the noir/ horror mash up is a lot of fun. The end of this arc was seriously creepy as shit, too. no spoilers, but damn.

    I just want to acknowledge how much heart, soul, and guts Ed Brubaker puts into this book. I always feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth and then some.

  9. I really enjoyed this issue, the creepy factor was definitely turned up. This book is a great showcase of two guys who can work within the confines of a genre, or in this case genres, but still manage to keep us readers guessing where the story will go next. I did miss the back matter this month, but Ed explained why, so no big deal.
