My former coworker Simon did a presentation on his favorite comics right before I left the job and I’ve been using his list to read some new (to me) comics. This past week I read the first volume of Fatale by Ed Brubaker and Sean Philips.

Fatale is an old fashioned noir looking mystery with a bit of an occult twist. The first volume we meet several characters, two of whom have mysterious powers over other people and they never seem to age. I’ve started the second volume and the story continues with both of them. The feeling of the drawings and the settings are wonderfully done. I feel like I’m in an old murder mystery movie from the 1950s.

I’m enjoying Fatale quite a bit. I’m drawn to the mystery of the characters and I’m also enjoying the art work as well. If you like mysteries, twists, and a noir feel, you’ll enjoy it too.
