    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig

    Brubaker and Phillips took on such a deep story and with new material coming out from them, I think they will have nothing but success after this comic has ended. Fatale has been the most alluring comic in line up, so it will be missed and will never really end in thoughts.

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire

    I started off with words that might have seemed like they were praising this book perhaps too hard, only to go on further and lavish more and more praise on this unique and exciting tale–this was not by accident, but by design. FATALE does indeed go out the way it should, with a compelling final chapter that provides a satisfying and triumphant conclusion to a story that is not only creative and challenging, but a standout example of what the visual storytelling medium is capable of. If you haven't read this series, don't wait a second longer: read FATALE!

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson

    I'm sort of still reeling from the fact that it is all over now. I don't know if anything can fill the void left behind by this book, but I also think that feeling is incredibly appropriate to the series. There is nothing left now but to grieve and start again from the beginning. To trap myself in a cycle, reliving each tragedy, each mistake, each heartbreak. To live like Josephine, searching for meaning in a mad mad world. To seek the truth, because I will not deny it. I live in the shadow of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Bravo gentlemen, bravo.

    Comic Booked - Newell Turner

    They say that all good things must come to an end, and I suppose this is proof of that. This series has been fantastic and gotten me hooked on Brubaker/Phillips collaborations. I now want to read their entire backlog of work and I'm really looking forward to their new series, The Fade Out.

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson

    Brubaker and Phillips' "Fatale" is an excellent example of the great modern comic -- an exercise in perfecting storytelling, in creating a cohesive and consistent vision for an entire story the same way you would expect a great novel, film, or television show to look and feel. "Fatale" #24 is an excellent example of why this is a book to be read again and again, standing the test of time, in spite of the fact that -- or perhaps because -- people will always worship monsters.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen

    Not a conclusion to cheer or smile over, nor a particularly conclusive one, but it's still quite powerful, and there's definitely nothing like it out there.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp

    I am surprised of the finality of events shown here as I expected writer Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips to leave Josephine's story a bit more open-ended. However, given the character's long life there are likely dozens of untapped stories to be told should the pair choose to return to Josephine's story somewhere down the line. Worth a look.
