The Fade Out #1
Brubaker & Phillips
Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips wrap up Fatale last month and kick off their next noir story, The Fade Out, this month. The interesting component of this opening issue is how the comic feels like a genuine period piece, in the vain of Mad Men, where as so many of their other books seemed to have the ability to transcend a specific time period. If you have a read a Brubaker and Phillips book before then you know what you are getting into. However, if you are new to their work then this series looks to have a cast of hard characters in a seedy underworld that wears the happy face of Hollywood. This first issue is about as strong as it gets. I highly recommend this comic book.
