The Stars Begin to Align

Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips “Fatale Deluxe Edition, Volume 2” (Image, 2015)

Fatale was Brubaker & Phillips’ take on noir meeting a Lovecraftian mythos.  A beautiful women, the Femme Fatale of the title, engaged in a struggle with cultists throughout time.

There’s a lot of unpack here, but it’s impossible to do so without massive massive spoilers.

But this giant (400+page) collection gives depth and a completion to the story.

This is a brilliant contemporary comic that deserves serious study and analysis.  This is the definitive way to read it.
