Can’t really go wrong with Ed Brubaker, especially when he’s teamed up with Sean Philips. This one takes a bit of a departure from their usual noir stories. Well, it’s still basically just another noir story, but this time with a Lovecraftian supernatural horror twist on it. Fatale tells the story of Josephine, a mysterious immortal woman with the power to control the minds of men, whether she wants to or not, and many of the unfortunate men she meets in her long life, while on the run from the evil Cthulhu-cult-type guys that keep chasing after her for reasons unknown.
