FATALE #23 review
It’s been about 12 issues since I last talked about Fatale, not because it hasn’t gotten any better or any worse, I just didn’t think it was necessary to keep writing about how incredible the book is. I would hope by this point you’ve at least picked up one issue of Fatale and seen how impressive and different the book is, unlike any other book on the market right now. The noir book starring the macabre and supernatural.
Well Fatale #23 has broken my silence, an issue that Ed Brubaker has dubbed the “All Sex Issue” ought to garner further attention, but for everyone who’s been with Jo since day one knows exactly what this means. Fatale #23 is less about sex and more about love making, love lost, and the pain that comes with all of it.
Besides the books psychedelic look from Sean Phillips, Fatale #23 read like a love lorn poem, beautiful and serene, innocent almost. It takes you places you’d never expect from Fatale and then throws you right down to where you knew Nicholas would end up.
I can’t believe Fatale concludes in just one more issue, Fatale #23 was almost the perfect ending, almost. It seems Brubaker needs one more book to open our hearts and minds and then firmly rip them out.
