Sean Phillips and Dave Stewart have crafted an awesome look for this book. They use thick lines, heavy shadows, and dark colors that give this book a cinematic quality. In fact, it's hard to read this comic and not feel like you're watching a movie. The panels are expertly paced, the dialogue is quick, and the characters are nuanced; this could be a modern film take on the classic genre, but it works perfectly as a comic. Even for an issue that didn't have much action, the comic still draws you in, making you excited to turn the page to see what happens next.
Fatale is a great read. This issue serves as a good catch-up issue for new readers, but this is a book you should really experience from the beginning. Luckily, Image has already released the first trade paperback, so you can get all caught up. If you like mystery and suspense, pick up Fatale, and see if you can crack the case.
