Product Description

Review

"Publisher's Weekly: "Fatale: Book One (Death Chases Me)Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Image (Diamond, dist.), $14.99 trade paper (144p) ISBN 978-1-60706-563-0The minute Nicolas Lash encounters Jo, femme fatale extraordinaire with more dark secrets than Faust, things go from bad to worse in this captivating noir. Occult forces and gut-wrenching horror collide in 1950s San Francisco, as a corrupt cop and a smitten reporter go toe-to-toe over Jo, an ageless beauty with the looks of a Vargas girl and the heart of a rattle snake, who is desperate to escape the grasp of a satanic cult and their demonic, shape-shifting leader. Graced with a suspenseful plot that has more twists and turns than an alpine road, and deliberately understated artwork, Fatale boasts both intrigue and an atmosphere that feels as densely bleak as a San Francisco mist at the tip of Fisherman's Wharf at dawn. Colorist Dave Stewart deserves special mention for his subtle, highly evocative use of neutral tones and earthy shades. This is a universe of darkness and gray shadows, and the palette perfectly fits the angst-ridden, desolate, catch-22 world of supernatural horror the protagonists must face-off against. Immortality may be a double-edged sword, but it's one the intoxicating Jo wields with a boundless grace in this addictive page-turner. (July)

By Squirr-El TOP 50 REVIEWER on 12 May 2014
Format: Paperback
The story running through the first five issues of the new Image Comics' series Fatale is 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. Fortunately I have the next two volumes here courtesy of my local library... However, I'll take some time to rest first.

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 Later, at the writer's home, his godson finds an unpublished manuscript of a story set in the 1950s.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 flashback story is an excellent combination of pulp horror (you know who I mean) and `noir' detective story, set in LA in the mid 1950s. If any of those are keywords for you, then read this book; it is beautifully illustrated and the scripting is excellent.

This book is so good hat I read it in one go, could not put it down. I found myself fully engrossed in the world Brubaker and Phillips created. I am a huge fan of incognito but this is even better, excellent writing and great art work. I have never read anything like it and is a breath of fresh air from the over abundance of men in tights. Must read

This is a brilliant story which immediately sucked me in. Brubaker throws so many hooks that it is difficult not to get caught up in 'Fatale'. Phillips' artwork totally compliments the story with its sparseness, emphasising the starkness of the story. This is a perfect combination of crime fiction and horror. 'Fatale' is definitely a nod to the likes of writers such as L.P. Lovecraft and Ambrose Bierce. This is an ongoing series and the mystery of Josephine is not cleared up here, but is left for another day. With this wonderful blend of horror and Noir, I found 'Fatale' a mesmerising read which is saying something as this is not something I would normally gravitate towards, however 'Fatale' is certainly a book I will be keeping tabs on in future.

Brubaker and Phillips continue to assert their status of best creative team in comics right now. Expanding on the critical and commercial success of their noir series, Criminal , Fatale adds in classic horror elements to the formula and the result is an expertly written, beautifully drawn mystery that won't let you go until it's dragged you into the darkness with it.
