The strangest issue of FATALE yet, as Nicolas Lash finally learns the last of Josephine's secrets, and the universe will never look the same. Don't forget that every issue of FATALE contains extra art and articles not available anywhere but the single issues!

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 17, 2014

    Fatale #23 is not the penultimate issue for an arc but rather the calm before the finale of a series. And because of that fact it certainly carries weight but never for a split second stumbles. This is a must own. Read Full Review

    I don't have to tell you that Brubaker and Phillips have a great thing going. Once it is over, I may shed a tear but man it has been an awesome series. The story captivated me in every way. Jo is one girl who knows how to capture an audience. Whatever happened I'm sure that anything will be spectacular, and I'm sure will always be a femme fatale to many. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Walter Richardson Jun 20, 2014

    What makes this issue incredible, though, is the work of Phillips and Breitweiser. Phillips has long been one of the best artists in the industry, and particularly one of my favorites, but this? This is something else. The frame of the issue allows Phillips to do things that otherwise wouldn't fit into this Lovecraft-tainted noir, experimenting in a way that not only doesn't detract, but makes the experience even more immersive. These larger panels and spreads allow the fantastic Breitweiser to show off, too, but again not to such a degree that it distracts. "Fatale" has always been impressive visually, but this may be the best looking issue yet. Read Full Review

    "Fatale" has been a great book, one that's disturbing and nasty, even as it's enthralling and clever. Whatever the final issue has waiting for us, I feel like I'm ready. It's been a fun ride, and this issue is no exception. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 23, 2014

    I'm going to be sad to see Fatale end, but the rich history of Josephine leaves open any number of stories for Brubaker and Phillips to return to the character somewhere down the line. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The penultimate issue for FATALE explodes with cosmic awareness and secret revealed, just not to the reader. Our main man gets his third eye blown open as a result of sexual relations with Jo. Next issue wraps it up and i hope it finally brings the answers,reveals and Lovecraftian horrors that they have been teasing for over 2 years!
