    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Mar 26, 2014

    Fatale is such a good comic. I would hate for anyone to miss out on any issue, but this one really is good about answering some of our questions. It is leading up to something epic. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Mar 24, 2014

    FATALE continues to be utterly fantastic and where some series tend to lose a bit of steam as they reach their conclusion, Fatale is not suffering that problem. Instead, the series continues to be compelling in every way, and the intimate focus on our key characters allows us to spend the final issues of the series with fleshed-out, well developed characters that we have become so very attached to and invested in. Brubaker, Phillips and Breitweiser are doing a wonderful job here and I can't wait until next issue. Read Full Review

    The Daily Crate - Jennifer Bosier Mar 28, 2014

    Ed Brubaker's Fatale is one of my favorite series and this issue makes my heart hurt that it's clearly ramping up to a finale. The story is so well told, and so much is left to the reader's inference, it creates the most wonderful sense of foreboding. Nothing good is coming for Nicholas in the coming issues, and it's entirely possible that Jo's future isn't so shiny either. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 1, 2014

    By the end of the issue Lash knows his darkest fears about Josephine have been proved true, but despite his terror he's trapped (as are we all) to stay and witness the conclusion even though he knows deep-down things aren't likely to end well. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    It's the same old song with a different chorus, but still a rather tuneful one to hum along to. Read Full Review

    "Fatale" #21 continues to turn out strong issue after strong issue, and while I'm sad to see the book almost at an end, it's creating such great stories I can't complain. Brubaker and Phillips's "Fatale" is their best collaboration to date. "Fatale's" mix of cults, mystery and horror wins every time. Read Full Review

    . . . $3.50, 24pgs! A+ cover. All ADs @ back! . . . This issue blew my mind at least 2.5 times, starting at the first page! I'm surprised they didn't keep that style switch for page 2, but its used to great effect. Some might feel the issue is slow, but i greatly enjoyed spending time with an old character. The development of Librarian, plot progression and historical reveals make this issue awesome on its own. On top of that we get great art, colors and design from Phillips and Breitweiser as usual. It will eb sad to see this title go, but i'm very excited now that things have heated up and are heading for conflict and conclusion. I highly recommend this series.
