Fatale (Image Comics)

Fatale is a supernatural noir comic book created by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. It was published by Image Comics between January 2012 and July 2014. The series was initially announced as a 12-issue limited series, but it was later extended to 24 issues.

The series was originally announced in the back of the final issue of Brubaker and Phillips' previous collaboration, Criminal: Last of the Innocent. Further details about the series, including its publisher, were revealed at the 2011 New York Comic Con. Brubaker also released a video teaser for the series.

The series began publishing monthly in January 2012. Although initially billed as a twelve-issue series, the length was increased in November 2012. The series concluded after 24 issues.

Several issues featured an article written by Jess Nevins and others on the crime/noir characters, both fictional and real.

Fatale chronicles the life of Josephine, or "Jo", an archetypal femme fatale who is seemingly immortal, having survived from the 1930s to the modern day unaged, and also has a supernatural ability to hypnotize men into becoming intensely infatuated with her, whether she wants them to be or not.

Through the decades, Jo struggles to understand and control her powers while being pursued by a violent cult. The cult worships cosmic gods reminiscent of Lovecraftian horrors, which are somehow tied to Jo.
