    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig May 7, 2014

    As the end is coming near, I am exciting to see how this epic tale ends. Although I don't think Fatale will ever really end. There is still much to be done. But even if we get another story or not, I still think Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have put together what I like to call my favorite freakin' comic. The narrative has taken the readers to lots of places and back again. Jo just has that control over everyone. With only two issues left, everything will put on the line for this final battle. Honestly, I don't even know who will win. Maybe somehow Bishop and Jo will die, but maybe for Jo that will be a win. Who knows. All I know is that I am going to be there bright eyed and ready to take in whatever Brubaker and Phillips throw at us. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jess Camacho May 8, 2014

    Since the announcement that the series was ending, each issue has been bittersweet -- we can't wait to see how it ends, but with such golden storytelling, under no means do we want to actually reach the conclusion. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Dave Buesing May 6, 2014

    All in all, Fatale is steamrolling towards its conclusion in issue #24, and "Fatale #22" is a much needed peripheral story to account for The Bishop and his motivations. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin May 6, 2014

    Fatale #22 continues to be what the franchise is: unique. And as this latest entry wraps up the team delivers something that earns a recommendation from me. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 18, 2014

    It's certainly a dark issue, presented completely from the mind of the creature who was once a man (and now does thing such as listen for answers from a tree of hanging dead babies) looking back on his life. Balanced against these events are his current actions discovering a bread crumb (inadvertantly?) left by Joespehine and preparing for the next convergence when he might once again be able to complete the sacrifice and… well, whatever would happen certainly wouldn't be good for Josephine or the rest of the world. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie May 11, 2014

    As much as I may know about this series after reading all twenty-two issues to date, I have to wonder if I really know anything at all at this point. And I dont expect to know anything for certain until I finish reading issue #24, if then. If youre not reading Fatale, do yourselves a favor, pick this one up and get a feel for the tone and bizarre nature of the series. Actually reading an issue will make things far more clear about this one than I ever could. Then, if you like it, do yourselves a bigger favor and go find the series first volume. Now if you are already reading the series, then I dont have to tell you how good it is, just go and enjoy this rather unsettling look into the life and mind of The Bishop. Read Full Review

    . . . $3.50, 24pgs. Grade A cover. All ADs @ back! . . . Fatale is running on a whole higher level, as we approach the end of the series. Brubaker is holding very little back and gives us major background to the Bishops in this issue. Phillips and Breitweiser are on top of their game. NOT TO BE MISSED!!
