It’s the turning point of the second arc of BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS’ white-hot series FATALE!

What is Josephine’s secret plan, and what has she been doing all these years on the run from the ’50s to the late ’70s? And has the monster that’s hunted her most of her life returned?

And remember, Fatale features back pages articles and art that is only available in the printed single issues.

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. This book is a great example of why comics are awesome. The story, the art, the backmatter, it’s all fucking top-notch. The work of Brubaker, Phillips, and Co. is Solid Gold!

  2. Feels like forever since the last one came out but if I have to wait to keep this comic awesome, it’s fine by me!

  3. Is it just me, or has Sean Phillips been a little rushed in the art for this arc? I’m still digging the story, and I’m nowhere near dropping it outright, but his facial features has been inconsistent. Look back at the female characters’ eyes and lips in particular.

  4. I REALLY want to trade wait this but the backup feature’s keep me coming back for more! I am in love with this series and because it’s a “horror” kind of noir story I know my wife will be into it too so it’s a triple win each time this comes out.

  5. I don’t really know what else to say about this book except that I dig it. Anyone who is remotely interested in pulpish horror and mysteries done by–in my opinion– the best team in comics, should just read it. We got some pretty good insight this issue into some of the history involving these characters, and things only look to get more interesting next time.
    I was kind of bummed there was no prose piece this time around, but the letters were cool.

    • My exact thoughts as well. Well said. I hope people aren’t giving up on this more long-form story as opposed to the shorter distinct Criminal arcs. This is great.

  6. A few narrative bows are tied in this issue. Although it’s not the end of an arc, I feel like now would be a good time to go back and re-read it from the beginning. Fatale is still excellent and one of my favorites on my pull list.
