It's the curse of the Femme Fatale in the old west, for those who like horror and noir in their spaghetti western. Another standalone FATALE FLASHBACK issue, and a perfect place for new readers to jump on board!

And remember each issue of FATALE contains extra content, articles and artwork that are not available anywhere but the printed single issues.

    Fatale #13 is another brilliant and gut-wrenching addition to this comic series. It may exist slightly off the beaten path but that doesn't prevent this one from offering up something special. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Brubaker and Phillips are as comfortable in the western setting as they are in the urban landscapes of the book's main arc. Last issue, the duo set their story in a primordial French forest in the Middle Ages, from which they seamlessly shift in the American West. This kind of locale shift gives readers the idea of the scope of Brubaker's story and of the centuries old stakes that exist between the cult and the fatales. Fatale is hard to describe but easy to love as Brubaker and Phillips break rules, kick ass, and scare the crap out of you month after month. Read Full Review

    This series keeps you questioning everything it is about so I highly suggest reading all the issues. Although you could probably start from issue 12, it is worth every penny to see how Josephine and all the other girls stories (or same girls story) unfold. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Mar 29, 2013

    Phillips art remains something I want to go back to, however. His moody, heavily shaded artwork has always been a highlight in all his collaborations with Brubaker. I was initially worried how he would handle a genre that is more defined by its blinding sunlight than what lurks in the shadows, but his sensibility still makes the series delightful, mostly by making most things happen at night. I would have liked things to be more stark, colour-wise, but the final page shows Phillips choice is less to do with limits on his ability and more with stylistic choice. Choosing a certain cohesion with the rest of the series is a good move, anyways, as these issues are to help bring new readers in. I hope these issues help bring in those new readers, but I also hope Brubaker and Phillips keep exploring their world to the depths they want to, its always a treat. Read Full Review

    Fatale is a great book. This particular issue is a perfect example of what this series is about. This issue has a stranger essay in the back than normal, but it still rounds out a great magazine-like package. If you like horror stories, western and femme fatales then you should give this book a try. At the very least you get an intelligently written and beautifully drawn book. Give it a shot.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 4, 2013

    Once again Brubaker and Phillips craft tale with familiar characters in new settings. I'd like a little more revelation about the cults as we see them over time, but the various protagonists continue to entertain. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    $3.50, 24pgs + backmatter; almost no ADs! ____ An outstanding Stand-alone chapter delving into our Josephine's past, and shedding some light. A good action issue, with quite a body count and some tentacles to boot. On this rare occasion we get some other interesting characters and creepy bits. Phillips and Breitweiser supply some fantastic art and moody colors. I am so glad Breitweiser came on this project!
