FATALE's second arc "The Devil's Business" rushes toward its savage conclusion, as Jo comes out of hiding, ready to confront the reborn Bishop as his cultists creep around 1970s Hollywood searching for her and her new lover...

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

    Fatale is a prime example of what comics could be if you simply use the medium to its fullest advantage, and I'm a happy man that I finally get to talk to my girlfriend about a comic we BOTH love. Read Full Review

    This issue along with the whole series is a roller coaster ride. It has all the makings of a good R-Rated crime film mixed with the blood and guts of a great horror movie. This is a book that is just as strong in story as it is visually. The penciling and coloration has a total retro vibe in the sense that you feel like you're transported to the time period it is taking place. Fatale never disappoints and this issue is just another piece of an incredible body of work. I cannot recommend this series enough and it is always worth buying the book itself as there are always some extras in the back. Check it out as soon as you get the chance. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jose Camacho Nov 1, 2012

    This issue sees both sides gearing up for something big and serves as a teaser for a big reveal. With some fun Easter Eggs in the art (is that a Burt Reynolds cameo I see in the party sequence?), and Fatale is continuing to kill it. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Nov 4, 2012

    We are always several paces behind the main characters, which is an impressive feat given that Miles never quite feels as though he is sure what is going on. As Josephine promises to reveal more next issue, Fatale makes the month between issues an excruciating wait. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 31, 2012

    The only problem this issue has, and it's a minor one, is a few art hiccups. Sean Philips is one of the best artist in the working in the medium today, but he's not one hundred percent on his game in this issue. The anatomy of some of the characters feels off, waists are too small, noses grow and shrink. It's still a great looking issue, but if you are used to Philips work, you'll no doubt notice that this isn't his best stuff. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 31, 2012

    Fatale #9 is another fantastic issue that propels this series forward while doing little more than maintaining the established level of quality, and trust me when I tell you that's a good thing. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Fatale #9 delivers in every sense of the word. It supplies us with answers that leave us asking more questions. Thats what is so brilliant about Fatale. Every time we get an answer we are left asking two more questions. With the stage is set for a show down between Hansel and Jo we are left pondering who has the upper hand? It looks like we will have to grab issue #10 to find out. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 6, 2012

    I expected the cult would be making their move in this issue, but even if writer Ed Brubaker has drawn out events a little longer than originally planned (the twelve issue series could now number more than twenty when all is said and done), the continued look at these characters, particularly Miles who has begun to question what is happening to him, is well done. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Mike Cassella Nov 6, 2012

    I cannot emphasize enough how much Fatale is one of the best series on the stands and if you're a fan of Criminal and Incognito, this is the progression in the repertoire of the best creative team in comics. The first trade is out, the arcs are broken up definitively, and each one offers a story that is a perfect jumping on point so that you can get swept up in the twists of a very mature narrative. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review
