Format: Hardcover
The story running through the first five issues of the new Image Comics’ series Fatale was originally collected as Fatale Volume 1: Death Chases Me TP (Fatale (Image Comics)); this really is a graphic ‘novel’, and not just a collection of episodes. It may be a pulp/noir genre novel, but it is an excellently written and illustrated one. I just read the collected edition cover to cover, and I didn’t want to stop.

The story starts in the present day, at the funeral of a detective story writer. His godson (and executor) meets a young woman at the graveside, whose grandmother knew the deceased. Later, at the writer’s home, his godson finds an unpublished manuscript of a story set in the 1950s. Some armed men then break into the house, the girl from the graveside rescues him. Later, he begins to read the manuscript, and in a series of flashbacks we then experience the story, and quickly realise that the main characters appear to be the deceased and the girl… In between chapters, the godson checks out details of the story, and eventually goes to see his father in the asylum where he has been for several years…

The story running through issues #6-11 was originally collected as Fatale Volume 2: The Devil's Business TP (Fatale (Image Comics)). This continues the story from the first volume, as Nicholas Lash digs further into his family’s past, and finds something strange – he met Josephine as a boy (he was the boy, not Josephine).

Format: Hardcover
This is a comic collection about private detectives and journalists and the seedy underworld. Floating through all this is Josephine, the femme fatale from the title, a literally irresistible gorgeous never-aging woman who can make men do what she wants. This arises from some supernatural power.

There are also other supernatural forces at work out to get her and she uses men around her to stay ahead of the game.

Characters are well-developed and the plot is well-written. The illustrations are also good although sometimes I struggled to remember which man was which. There is more than one story but there is a common thread surrounding Josephine throughout.

Hardcover collects Issues #1-10 of Brubaker/Phillips' excellent supernatural noir Image Comics comic book series 27 Mar. 2014
By K. W. Schreiter - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This hardcover collects the first ten issues of the Ed Brubaker/Sean Phillips supernatural noir comic book series originally published by Image Comics in 2012. This material was previously collected in the Fatale Volume 1 “Death Chases Me” and Volume 2 “The Devil’s Business” TPBs. The narrator meets the titular femme fatale Josephine at his eccentric uncle’s funeral and is soon fleeing with her from a sinister Lovecraftian cult. The complex story follows the seemingly ageless Josephine through the 1950s and 1970s. Her hypnotic power over men usually leads them to misfortune. As with their Criminal and Incognito hardcovers, this book also features larger page margins than the comics and TPBs, a welcome feature that ensures that none of the artwork is swallowed by the spine’s binding. It also features some additional Sean Phillips artwork and two essays from Jess Nevins.
I’m a great fan of the Brubaker/Phillips partnership and bought every issue of this series as it was released. Though the series is now up to Issue #21, I enjoyed returning to these first two story arcs and noticed how much I had missed or forgotten since the first reading. This excellent series is scheduled to end soon with Issue #24 so I expect that one more hardcover is forthcoming.

Comics-Noir and Cthulhu: So Happy Together 23 Jun. 2014
By C.K. Lidster - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I wish I felt clever enough this morning to avoid saying it, but it nevertheless sums up Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips latest creation, Fatale, quite nicely: imagine the cool, flawless writing of Dashiell Hammett cross-pollinated by H.P. Lovecrafts' alien word-spores, and you end up with Fatale. Both Hammett and Lovecraft were contemporaries who wrote genre fiction, but there the similarities end. Hammett was a brilliant writer, an excellent prose stylist who had led a fascinating life of adventure and came late to the writing game, receiving a great deal of critical acclaim and celebrity almost immediately. Lovecraft, on the other hand, was a self-educated shut-in likely suffering from an unknown psychiatric disorder, writing his strange tales of cosmic horror for the pulps and receiving virtually no attention for his bizarre themes and awkward, overwrought prose until after his premature death. Fatale, however, manages to forge these two disparate elements into a hitherto unknown alloy. The noir atmosphere perfected in the outstanding 'Criminal' books seems even darker here, as Phillips drops his spot-blacks even thicker in his brilliant chiaroscuro style. Only Eduardo Risso, Jordi Bernet and Frank Miller can do Comics Noir like Phillips. Brubakers' story centers on the titular Femme Fatale Jo, a mysterious and apparently ageless beauty, who is being hunted by demonic extra-dimensional entities and their acolytes. As she struggles to stay ahead of her fate, she is aided by men unfortunate enough to fall under her succubus-like spell, though she remains conflicted, and is perhaps not entirely in control of her deadly allure. She remains a mystery throughout, though she is by no means evil, just desperate. Even the knowledge that the men who become her would-be protectors will likely meet bad ends, she has no choice but to hope that things will turn out different, better. If you've read Criminal or Incognito, you know how good these two guys are. Fatale is even better than Criminal, and it's one of my favorite mainstream comics. Image has let Phillips design this gorgeous deluxe edition, and he follows a similar course to the one he took on the Criminal books. There are plenty of extras once again, including Brubakers' supplementary essays and Phillips' stellar paintings. You get a lot of great material and one awesome book for the $32 asking price, which is way lower that the $56 MSRP. If you're a fan of comics, or noir, or Lovecraftian horror, do what you have to do; pull a casino heist, make a deal with Cthulhu, just get yourself a copy. Or don't. It.s pretty damn good, though... I promise. If you don't end up liking it, feel free to kick me in the head.

An incredible edition to a incredible history 12 May 2014
By Allan Davy S. Sena - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book! The narrative is clever, the art is superb, the colours are beautiful. This Deluxe Edition gives the treatment that this history deserves. Only a few articles that were published in the last pages of the single issues are reprinted here, but Brubaker explains that those articles are a gift to the first readers for their support, what I felt fair enough.

Awesome. Perfect inside and outside 1 July 2014

Awesome. Perfect inside and outside.
The story was a mixture between horror and noir, and the pencils correlate perfectly with the atmosphere.
And the price is correct with this deluxe edition.
This is exactly what bad fiction should be 7 Sept. 2015
By T. Cue. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Another home run by Brubaker. He recycles tropes into a modern version with fast action, great art, random sexuality, and an easy-to-follow plot. His MacGuffin is the main character, who has mysterious powers of seduction that, despite her lack of complex character or even strikingly hot features (she's "standard" comic book hot, but without anything physically unique, mentally invigorating, or even wardrobe-unique to set her apart), can essentially mind-control any non-elite character she encounters. She feels angsty throughout about "using" people, even though she's using them as a superhero in the service of good. And she has a rumored dark past that is being left in the shadows for now.

Why watch increasingly preachy movies when you can see European-American culture demonized so subtly and so well in another of these well-bound comic books?
