The Fade Out Volume 1
Writer: Ed Brubaker
Artist: Sean Phillips
Publisher: Image Comics
Hollywood – 1948. A noir film stuck in endless reshoots. A writer plagued with nightmares from the war and a dangerous secret. An up-and-coming starlet’s suspicious death. And a maniacal Studio Mogul and his Security Chief who will do anything to keep the cameras rolling before the Post-War boom days come crashing down. THE FADE OUT is the most ambitious series yet from the award-winning Noir Masters.

  1. While I completely get what Ashley was saying about liking Sunstone because men get naked in it when they usually don’t in other things.

    I’m still reeling about there being weenies in one of the best lesbian comics ever. (and weird enough that I’d come here to make a comment about a tiny side thing she said)
