The release schedule for FATALE may have slowed (see episode 24 for our review of Book 2: The Devil’s Business) but FATALE is back and better than ever. Co-hosts Matt and Chris delve into four stand-alone issues that are rife with horror, mystery and intrigue. If you haven’t picked up FATALE, now is the time to catch up. Join us for our review!
Brubaker and Phillips are back with another stunning volume of their critically acclaimed series FATALE. Whether you collect this series issue by issue, or wait for the graphic novels, FATALE is one of the best books on shelf.
Masterfully planned (especially for a series that continues to grow each month – originally planned for 12 issues, FATALE will now be 20+) The Devil’s Business keeps the reader intrigued with flashes of Nicholas in the present storyline, but the bulk of the book is spent on a new cast of characters in late 1970’s Los Angeles. A failed actor collides with the Method Church and chaos ensues. Plus we learn more about Josephine, setting us up for what could be the best storyline yet. Not to be missed!
