I almost did a list about comic recs instead, but seeing how half of my current favorite ones don’t even have their first volumes out, I thought this would be better and a way to motivate myself. I tried to pick series from the ones I already own however, I did include a couple of recs as well (I will eventually buy them so they count, right).
Review: The Fade Out, Vol. 1: Act One by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Fade Out, Vol. 1: Act One by Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips, Elizabeth Breitweiser
historical noir fiction comics published by Image Comics on March 10th, 2015
first volume in The Fade Out comic series
Brubaker and Phillips’ newest hit series, The Fade Out, is an epic noir set in the world of noir itself, the backlots and bars of Hollywood at the end of its Golden Era. A movie stuck in endless reshoots, a writer damaged from the war and lost in the bottle, a dead movie star and the lookalike hired to replace her. Nothing is what it seems in the place where only lies are true. The Fade Out is Brubaker and Phillips’ most ambitious project yet!
Collects The Fade Out issues #1 to #4.
