Ready for an engaging graphic novel read that will keep you on your toes...and maybe looking over your shoulder, afraid to turn out the lights at night? Look no further than this beginning of Ed Brubaker's "Fatale," a series collected in five volumes just waiting to be quickly devoured. That is if something with cold tentacles doesn't reach from the pages and devour you first... The story, at its heart, of a man with the misfortune to cross paths with and fall hard for a woman who brings nothing but trouble, is a pitch-perfect noir classic archetype. But in this case, the trouble hypnotic Josephine trails in her wake is something literally out of this world. If you've never really dabbled with Lovecraft horror before this accessible yet strange story would be a great place to start. Hardcore fans, however, will likely also enjoy a brand-new take on the familiar brought out by a unique genre blend. Whether you own every Arkham Horror board game or aren't quite sure how to pronounce "Cthulhu," have no doubt that "Fatale" is a creepy cool, mind-bending read any comics fan will enjoy.
Modern day reporter Nicolas Lash learns of a secret involving an ageless woman who has been on the run since the 1930s, while reporter Hank Raines meets the same woman in 1950s San Francisco.
