Josephine is cursed, and in a series that darkly blends American crime noir with unnamed Lovecraftian horrors, we follow her from 1950s San Francisco, where crooked cops hide deeper evils, to mid-'70s L.A., where burnt-out actors and ex-cult groupies are caught in a web around a satanic snuff film...and in the middle of it all is Josephine, with a power to die or kill for!
The second volume of Fatale's Deluxe Edition finishes the epic noir-horror series, from comic masters Ed Brubaker and Sean

Fatale: The Deluxe Edition, Volume 2 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
More film noir with supernatural events from Brubaker Volume 2 continues with more short stories set in the 1940s onwards which blend elements of film noir with the supernatural. All of them centre around our irresistible femme fatale, Josephine, who no man can refuse and is sought by the police and the Bishop, another immortal. Lovecraftian creatures also abound. Each story tells us how Josephine’s influence ruins the men around her as they seek her out, even after she is the cause of the ruin of their lives. Yet again, the writing and artwork are clear and well-conceived. Lots of gore and violence and sex but ultimately, along with the storyline, it all gets quite repetitive.
