Continuing my run on trying out new comics and just jumping into them, i read Fatale to satisfy my curiousity on what makes this comic book tick. As the 5th issue of the series, this story is well told and paced very very well to the point of giving me, a person who has not read the previous issues of the story, an entertaining time. The quick look back on the first page not only filled me in on the basic plot and what i missed but it also set a very unsettling mood for the rest of the book. The dialogue and naration is also very natural sounding but not losing the noir theme and vibe of it. I wish every comic was like this. It’s able to deliver for its current audience but at the same time it was told well enough so new readers like me are able to pick it up and even urge us to go and pick up the previous issues. This is a unique entertainment mechanism that is unique to the medium. I dare anyone come to the theater right at the last 30 minutes and the film, sit through to the credits and come back to the rest of the film. This is how i felt while reading this story and yet i was able to enjoy the story nonetheless.

Now that i have a taste of this, rest assured i will be going back not only for the rest of this story but also for the past works of Brubaker and Philips.

  1. So I guess you didn’t rate this a 1 then. I’m surprised that just jumping right into this worked for you, but glad also. If you thought this was good then you’ll really dig it once you read the whole arc. I totally recommend anything by the Bru/Phillips duo, you won’t be disappointed. Oh, and great review.
