The Fade Out
review 1: I tried to buy a copy of this from Gosh about 3 hours after it was released and they were already sold out so I ended up ordering it from Forbidden Planet. Ed and Sean are my favourite writer/artist pair at the moment. The make beautiful film noir comics together and it is nice to get in on the beginning on one of their stories. As always reading individual comics I find quite hard, they take about 15 minutes and then I want the next one. Just as the story gets going they end! But this was a lovely introduction to a series, a mystery, characterisation, danger and a hint of things to come. Sean Philips art is simply gorgeous he really captures the era beautifully. The hairstyles, the clothes it all looks wonderful! I'm really looking forward to the rest of this se... moreries.
review 2: I'm excited that I actually came in on the ground floor, when the very first issue came out, with this one. That's a first for me! I'm intrigued with this and thought the first issue was really entertaining. The period detail is great, too. For Old Hollywood/LA fans, keep an eye out for Angel's Flight!My only quibble, so far, is that the plotline is a tad generic as far as noir goes. There is one big surprise though that comes near the end of the issue that felt fresh. less
