The curse of the femme fatale has taken readers of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ horror noir series FATALE from Medieval France to present day, with stops in the Wild West, post-World War II San Francisco, and 1970s Los Angeles. Now, in June, FATALE returns to the present in the pages of FATALE #15, as Nicholas Lash desperately tries to find out the truth behind the mysterious Jo, a beautiful woman who is seemingly immortal.
Josephine, heroine of Ed Brubaker’s and Sean Phillips Image Comics series FATALE, has carried the curse for decades — able to enthrall men but chased by an ancient evil, she is seemingly destined to cause the ruination of anyone who loves her. The haunting series was originally planned as a mini-series, but Brubaker and Phillips have found that curse of the femme fatale is inexhaustible. Thanks to strong sales, a wealth of stories yet to be told, and a certain mesmerizing quality, FATALE is now an ongoing series.
