The Bishop disappeared in Los Angeles in the late '70s, in a fiery scream, but he's never really been gone, and now he's finally got Jo's scent again.

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

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Sep 25, 2013

    Hands down, I would have to say that Fatale is my favorite comic out right now. It showcases everything I love about mystery reading. If this were a movie I would say that Jo was casted on point in every aspect, but to think that she is just a character from a comic is an even greater compliment to how well-built she is. This issue proves my point exactly, and I love when a comic can build up to the hype I give it. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Sep 24, 2013

    Put simply, FATALE cannot be praised enough, as it is easily one of the best–if not, the best–comic(s) to hit the stand each and every month. Brubaker and Phillips hit a home run every single time, and there's no telling just how far they can go with this series. Like its main character Josephine, Fatale has me hooked, and there's not a damn thing I can do about it. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ricardo Guajardo Sep 25, 2013

    Overall I couldn't help but think this is another stellar release from Image. I cannot recommend enough despite it not being reader friendly but that doesn't stop them from enjoying a dark and chilling story topped with a nice dose of sex and violence. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian Sep 25, 2013

    It's hard not to crave more of this story, like Jo's men crave more moments with her -- in this regard, Brubaker and Phillips have locked us into FATALE in the most meta of ways. Every issue reveals more hooks, more drama, more danger, and even though the title itself tells us how things are going to play out, it's a captivating narrative with compelling illustrations. The multitude of subplots might make it a smart choice for trade-waiting, but I can't say no to each month's new issue -- you can't say no to Jo. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 3, 2013

    Writer Ed Brubaker continues to gather the storm clouds as well as Josephine's unsheilded presence comes to the attention of not one but two separate enemies both obsessed with finding her. A really strong issue with great use of foreboding and more top notch art from Sean Phillips. Worth a look. Read Full Review
