Glossy comic book equivalent of a pulp-fiction detective novel. Misogynistic.

"Modern day reporter Nicolas Lash learns of a secret involving an ageless woman who has been on the run since the 1930s, while reporter Hank Raines meets the same woman in 1950s San Francisco."

a/o 3/29/17 The description for this book is actually for another book by the author Fatale. This is not the description for The Fade Out.

A fun noir feeling mystery with plenty of action and intrigue. It's set during the golden age of Hollywood, but its not as pretty as some may think. Women are treated poorly, the drinks flow freely, and the government is paranoid about communists. Our main character finds himself trying to fill in the blurry gaps of a grand Hollywood hills party that turns deadly for a young actress, while the studio and other nefarious people attempt to cover it up. A great start to an interesting series. The writing is great and the art has a perfect dark and gritty feel for the story. Recommended for mature audiences (plenty of drinking, violence and nudity).

At this point, Brubaker and Phillips could write anything and I would read it. Those men make some beautiful comics about ugly things. In this series, they're back to their old tricks - writing about screwed-up people in terrible situations. What makes The Fade Out unique is the setting - Golden Age Hollywood - and they use the juxtaposition of glamour and corruption to good effect. Great series. Worth picking up.

Really fun story. I got it just to see if it was any good and was kind of surprised. Takes place in 1940's. Reminded me of L.A. Confidential. I think it's an ongoing series, looking for the next one.
