Friday, October 25—FATALE by Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips
(V. 1-V.5 TPs, Book 1 & Book 2 HCs available now)

Josephine is cursed, and in a series that darkly blends American crime noir with unnamed Lovecraftian horrors, we follow her from 1950s San Francisco, where crooked cops hide deeper evils, to mid-'70s L.A., where burnt-out actors and ex-cult groupies are caught in a web around a satanic snuff film...and in the middle of it all is Josephine, with a power to die or kill for.

Saturday, October 26—MOONSHINE by Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso
(V. 1 & V. 2 TPs available now)

From writer BRIAN AZZARELLO and artist, EDUARDO RISSO—the Eisner Award-winning creative team behind the crime classic, 100 Bullets—comes a brutal new series that puts a horror twist on a classic gangster tale! Set deep in Appalachia during Prohibition, MOONSHINE tells the story of Lou Pirlo, a city-slick “torpedo” sent from New York City to negotiate a deal with the best moonshiner in West Virginia, Hiram Holt. Lou figures it a milk run, but what he doesn’t figure is that Holt’s just as cunning and ruthless as any NYC crime boss. Not only will Holt do anything for his illicit booze operation, he’ll stop at nothing to protect a much darker, bloodier family secret.
