    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Aug 15, 2012

    Another great issue from Brubaker who is magnificently weaving a dark, mysterious, occult story. I love the layers that are added with each introduction to a new character. The way that he portrays Josephine as this intoxicating vixen is brilliant -- she's seemingly irresistible. I love the way Brubaker begins to tie Josephine to the occult group towards the end of the issue -- it's really well done. Sean Phillips does a fantastic job setting the tone and mood of the story with his beautiful art and his selection of colors to depict the mood of each individual scene. Another fantastic issue that will leave you at the edge of your seat. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Aug 21, 2012

    There are few books that capture my attention from the get go. Atomic Robo, Locke and Key, and Fatale are books that I love to talk up, and am amazed when people say they don't know what I'm talking about. Granted I'm usually hyped up on sugar at the time, and jumping out from the shadows jabbering non-stop does tend to put people off, but still... Fatale is a must read series, and Fatale #7 hits all the right notes, earning 5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Overall, fans of pulp magazines will get a slightly denser interpretation and fans of film noir will get a slightly skewed interpretation of their respective genres. Fans of both, will get a welcome introduction to both. Read Full Review

    You can't go wrong with a Brubaker/Phillips collaboration. Even so, Fatale is making a strong case for being the best of their projects. It combines all the familiar elements with a new and distinctly original horror slant. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Deniz Cordell Aug 16, 2012

    Fatale is still an excellent book, and while Ed Brubaker's scripting is sharply defined, filled to overflowing with smart rat-tat-tat dialogue and rich veins of characterization, Sean Phillips' rich artwork envelops the reader firmly in this rain-slicked, blood-drenched milieu.

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Boren Aug 17, 2012

    According to the issue's extras in the back, this installment was late. While nobody likes late comics, the tardiness just further proves that the key to a good Brubaker/ Philips book is patience. It also makes me wish I owned a time machine so I can read the rest of this arc right now, because the suspense is so thick I need a chainsaw. Read Full Review

    Fatale has all the makings of a very good, and long, story that hits on many touchpoints throughout its world. If you haven't started reading it yet, I highly suggest that you do — the first trade, ‘Death Chases Me', recently hit the shelves and should help Brubaker and Phillips's latest success reach an even greater audience.

    Geekality - Kevin Hopson Aug 14, 2012

    Ed Brubaker spins a mysterious, thought-provoking tale that combines both horror and the occult, while Sean Phillips and Dave Stewart adequately portray the noir setting Fatale is best known for. I can see why this has been a highly-touted series, and I'd be inclined to pick up future issues as this second story arc continues to progress. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 23, 2012

    Although most of this issue is set-up, with the blind Hansel knowing that Josephine is in Los Angeles and Miles now bent to Josephine's will things should get interesting very quickly beginning next month. Worth a look. Read Full Review
