Daily Graphic Novel Recommendation 169

Fatale

by Ed Burbaker and Sean Phillips, with colors by Dave Stewart
Genre notes: supernatural, horror, adventure
5 vols
ISBN: 1607065630 (Amazon)

While Brubaker and Phillips are probably most celebrated for their crime series Criminal, I really do love their bid at pulpy BPRD-style cosmic horror adventure. While telling the story of the harrowing of nearly immortal Josephine, the book pops back and forth through history giving value to the present by illuminating the past. Jo can make any man do what she wants and every man wants her, but there are more sinister powers at play—cultists who want to bring about the entrance of some sort of probably Ogdru Jahad thing and they require her ritual sacrifice to do it. Fatale follows Jo and the men who follow Jo as she tries to break free of the curse once and for all.
