This third volume in Ed Brubaker’s pulp noir horror series gives us four interlinked stories about the history of the temptress, from the 1200’s right up to 1940’s. We see Josephine and Walt meeting during the war and how they defeated the cult and came home to America. Although there is plenty of disturbing content, this dark story is very captivating. The illustrations by Sean Phillips deserve special attention as they create the sinister atmosphere.

These stories never quite tell the whole story, so the reader is left wondering are Mathilda, Bonnie and Josephine all the same person, or are there different fatales in different time periods. One thing was very clear however, although this volume gives us plenty of hints but it is up to the reader to put the puzzle together. ( )

A linha narrativa principal vive melhor sem estes contos dentro da história. Os demais, em gesto de flashback entre as personagens da linha principal, são suficientes e de melhor qualidade.
Um volume de dispensáveis enchidelas de chouriço.
Aguarda-se com ansiedade a retoma de um dos melhores comics da actualidade. ( )

For me this was the best Fatale so far, though I really only engaged with the third story in here (the western). ( )

The standalone stories here are a refreshing change of pace, providing some interesting background on the star femme fatale, Josephine and the history of her predecessors. Brubaker takes the noir book through a variety of genres, including medieval, western and World War II.

While some might view this as treading water a bit, the stories act to fill in the world created by Brubaker and leave the reader hungry for more. ( )
