In review: Fatale
Published by Image Comics, with the story written by Ed Brubaker and illustrated by Sean Phillips and Dave Stewart, Fatale is a supernatural action adventure comic which takes place during World War II and centers around the monsters unleashed by war and the humans caught in the unimaginable middle of all that death and destruction. The real world it seems is also accompanied by the hidden mystical world, which can only be seen by those cursed with the kind of gift no one really ever wants to receive.
This comic was also a great World War II story that was as much X-file episode as it was Band of Brothers. The art was not just fun, but also captured the feel of the 1940’s and accented the supernatural twist inherent in the comic and I enjoyed reading it very much!
The characters, setting and attention to historical detail along with the believable mystical look to the nazi creatures helped make the story a believable and fun read. The action was intense and suspenseful, with an occult flavor that seemed plausible to my well tamed suspension of disbelief! I highly recommend this comic and am considering purchasing it regularly. Let’s see what the next issue looks like, but so far so good!
