Fatale Issue 20 and Book 4, In Stores This Week.

The first issue of Fatale's concluding arc is in stores this week along with "Book Four: Pray for Rain," the trade paperback collecting the most recent arc, set in the 90's Seattle grunge scene.  Comic Book Resources, Comicosity, and All-Comic all have a five-page preview of the new issue, which apparently begins a story called "Curse the Demon."

The press release for the first deluxe edition is now making the rounds at sites such as The Outhousers, and Sean Phillips has responded that the book's length has already grown from 288 pages to 312 pages.  And, the New York Times would like to see Fatale become a television series, starring Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke and helmed by the Coen brothers.

In the meantime, everyone has a good reason (or two!) to visit your local comic retailer this Wednesday.

We're very much hoping so, and we're assuming so unless we hear otherwise from Ed and Sean.

We reported that, when the film adaptation of "Coward" was first announced to be in pre-production, the Variety story also mentioned a sequel to "Coward" was in the works. This was all prior to the debut of Fatale (a new director was attached last October), but I don't think anything's changed.

(Go even further back in interviews, and you'll see that Brubaker's also hinted about another story to be told, about when Leo, Jacob, and the Lawless boys were all kids.)

Brubaker has recently said that the new project, The Fade Out, should please fans of Criminal, but you're not the only one hoping for more Criminal stories.

Is that the ledge from... Naw, couldn't be...

"Trust Co" on the window! Heh.

You're sick people, Fatale crew, but I love you for it.
