    Give Mr. Brubaker a good artist and the resulting gestalt produces comics you want to stay in and explore. The story pacing is simple but that's 1. A relief in this day of multi part crossovers that need a mortgage to keep up with and 2. It doesn't need to be complicated, the execution of the core concept is simply a joy to read.

    The Fade Out is going to wind up being one of the perfect stories that comics gets every once in a while; a thing of self-contained beauty that manages to involve, surprise and still be affecting even as it is also a prime example of the form. This issue, though it's more single-minded and smaller in scale than others, is a perfect example of what's made the book such a success. Read Full Review

    I would say buy this book, but you'll be lost. Catch up if you can, pick it up, wait for the trade, it doesn't matter"put on your favorite dark and smoky jazz record, light up a cigarette and immerse yourself in The Fade Out. Read Full Review

    Its sometimes hard to match expectations of a work of art/entertainment with the work itself. This comes to mind when discussing The Fade Out #11. Most of my critiques come from the fact that this is one of the last issues and there are still many questions that this issue doesnt satisfy. However, many aspects of The Fade Out #11 work quite nicely. I like how Charlie and Gil dont really end up as heroes. They are simply writers who end up realizing that they are not qualified for detective work even if they write detective stories. They get in over their heads and have to flee quickly, though not without some repercussions that I imagine will be explored in the next issue. Read Full Review
