    I have very little idea what to expect as each issue comes and goes, but if there is one thing that I can expect, every issue is going to be very cool and special. Read Full Review

    Besides the new Ultimate Spider-Man, I didn't think there was a series where the writer, artist and colorist could be so in sync with each other until Fatale. The story sucks you in from beginning to end; the art and color make you feel that you are witnessing these events in person instead of reading them on a page. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Nick Boisson Mar 7, 2012

    The surreal mystery that Brubaker and Phillips are laying out for us is one of the few comics that I am reading that stays with me in the weeks between the next issue. We may want to know what happened to Josephine during the war or what happened to Raines' wife, but it is only issue #3 and he most certainly cannot give it all away in the first act. But, until we know what is cloaked in the darkness, this book will have you champing at the bit for the next issue for as far as I can see. Read Full Review

    "Fatale" #3 is an excellent comic and reading in the back that it's been extended up to 15 issues makes me extra-pleased. I've loved "Criminal" and "Incognito," but right now it's "Fatale" that has me the most excited that I can remember about a Brubaker and Phillips collaboration. If you aren't reading their comics yet, there really is no time to waste. Start with "Fatale" and you won't be sorry. Read Full Review

    Fatale builds in intensity, and just when you think you'll be left wondering; Brubaker punches you square in the jaw and makes you spit blood. The taste and the sting are unforgettable. That's Fatale #3. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 14, 2012

    A very strong issue that doesn't give away many of its secrets but doesn't feel like its necessarily obscuring a reveal for another month either. I can't wait to see where this supernatural noir goes from here. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Mar 7, 2012

    Phillips continues to do what he does best and puts together a dark and moody noir book with hard lines and heavy shadows. He draws Josephine with a classic, timeless beauty that looks sexy, statuesque, and mesmerizing. This gives her a strong presence on the page and also allows her to operate in the past and present seamlessly. For a book called Fatale, they definitely got that part right. Read Full Review
