It's the turning point of the second arc of BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS' white-hot series FATALE! What is Josephine's secret plan, and what has she been doing all these years on the run from the '50s to the late '70s? And has the monster that's hunted her most of her life returned?

And remember, Fatale features back pages articles and art that is only available in the printed single issues.

    Geekality - Patrick Halpin Oct 1, 2012

    This is my first issue of Fatale as I'd been waiting for the trade, which I suppose would be out now and I should get around to ordering, and it's everything I expected; a tightly crafted noir thriller involving lots of parties who host a myriad of complicated motivations and back-stories. What I didn't expect was the stories hinging on a Mansonesque cult or that there would be supernatural underpinnings. I find myself quite happy about it as it helps this book distinguish itself from Criminal. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Oct 3, 2012

    This entire series has been fantastic so far, and this issue is not different. I love the build up of some of the scenes in this issue; I think it's executed with a lot of tact and finesse. Additionally, you have a story that is still mysterious. Beyond the mystery surrounding Josephine, there is the mystery of just how these characters are tied together and who they are. Once again, just as you think you know what's going on in this story, Brubaker takes a turn leaving you with more questions than answers and an urge to continue reading. Read Full Review

    Fatale #8 is yet another example that Brubaker and Phillips are one of the best creative teams in comics, bar none. Read Full Review

    Fatale continues to deliver a solid story with great art. There's nothing quite like this noir series and you should definitely be checking it out. The first trade is already available and the second arc is about to conclude. The perfect time to catch up if you're behind. Read Full Review

    Though this issue stalled a bit for me, I am still a huge fan of this series and believe that every comic fan should give it a try. Good thing the first trade is out collecting the first five issues of this comic. Certainly among the best comics printed today, dont judge this series by this issue. Read Full Review

    Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Josephine begins a relationship with B-movie star Miles against her better judgement and waits for the other shoe to drop now the cult knows she's alive and where to find her as Mr. Bishop prepares to take his revenge. If you aren't reading noir horror tale, you should be. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Oct 6, 2012

    Overall, the series isn't their stronger work, something has been off compared to Criminal, their brilliant noir series. But, for those that love horror and noir, there's not a better combo of the two on the market. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 3, 2012

    "Fatale" #8 is another good issue, although at this point if you're thinking about giving the series a whirl, the first collection of "Fatale" is already in stores everywhere and is perhaps a better jumping on point. And trust me, if you aren't reading "Fatale" already this is a series you should definitely sample. As always, good stuff. Read Full Review
