The Pull List (8/20/14): The Fade Out fades in

by

comment

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips made headlines when they signed a 5-year deal with Image Comics, which allows them to do pretty much anything they want. The first product from the deal is The Fade Out #1, and Brubaker called it his “ultimate noir story” in a recent interview. The issue hits shelves today.

The Fade Out takes us back to Hollywood in the 1940s, weaving in and out of a murder mystery involving an up-and-coming actress. Brubaker maintains that the story stretches past the movie industry and into the lives of the wealthy and even a few years before the book’s present-day 1948, diving into wartime horrors.

The first issue comes with 40 pages of content, with bonus articles included. If you want even more, an oversized variant with more articles and a behind-the-scenes view is included. The larger version is called the “movie magazine replica” edition.
