Hello? You had me at old-timey noir Hollywood murder graphic novel. ( )

The Fade Out has a great setting in the hey days of Hollywood. Screenwriter Charlie Parish wakes up from a drunken stupor next to a dead actress. With no recollection of his actions, he flees the scene only to learn that the studio has fixed it to make it look like a suicide to avoid scrutiny. Unfortunately, there were too many characters, despite a two page summary with illustrations, and I found the story slow, wandering, and too dark and bloody.

I love it when Ed Brubaker does noir. I never thought he would do an L.A. Confidential / Black Daliah kind of book without monsters, lasers, and all sorts of comic book actions. This was a slow burn that kept the mystery going until the end. Its the kind of comic that people who don't read superheroes but love mystery should read.

I read this book via NetGalley. I thank them for this book. ( )

THIS VOLUME/ACT WAS SOOO GOOD. I LOVE ED BRUBAKER AND SEAN PHILLIPS!!

This series already feels a little more complex than Kill or Be Killed. Maybe because there are more main characters and the setting in the 1940's feels stronger.

I can't wait to continue this series. The only thing I can't stand is that there are only 3 volumes! :( ( )
