Quantcast

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have established themselves as modern practioners of the crime comic, first with Criminal for Marvel's Icon imprint and again with Image Comics' Fatale. This August they return to Image with a new crime series, The Fade Out, that promises to break new creative ground.

Hollywood in the 1940s was a playground of moguls and starlets, a city of secrets, a city of dreams. Beneath the veneer of opulence and the flash of camera bulbs, writers were haunted by nightmares, starlets had secrets that could ruin the powerful, and the powerful were determined to keep the good times rolling. In the days after the end of the war, these combine in a powerful and toxic brew. Some people will pay the price for their hubris, no secret stays buried forever, and some parties are doomed to end.

Brubaker and Phillips signed a five-year deal with Image, with The Fade Out as their first book in the line. It's a heady brew of crime and corruption, and no fan of their work will want to miss it.
