Highlights for Wednesday, October 3: Everything Else
We’ll lead off the Everything Else highlights this week with Image Comics and Fatale #8! Part crime-noir, part Lovecraft-inspired horror, Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ Fatale has established itself as one of the best books on the shelf right now. We didn’t get an issue of Fatale last month so we’re definitely ready for this one. God help us try to remember everything that’s going on, as it’s one of the densest titles in comics!

It’s the turning point of the second arc of BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS’ white-hot series FATALE! What is Josephine’s secret plan, and what has she been doing all these years on the run from the ’50s to the late ’70s? And has the monster that’s hunted her most of her life returned?
And remember, Fatale features back pages articles and art that is only available in the printed single issues.
Also from Image, look for Thief of Thieves #9. It’s the beginning of a new story arc and a great time to check out one of Robert Kirkman’s books OTHER than Walking Dead. He’s a thief! Among thieves!
Over at DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint, look for Fairest #8! Like Thief of Thieves, Fairest also kicks off a new story arc, and this one looks like it involves one Rapunzel! Yes, THAT Rapunzel. Her adopted witch mother thinks she’s a slut, origami birds carrying a sinister message are attacking her window – and now, she has to defy Bigby and Snow’s orders to travel from New York to Tokyo and resolve a mystery from her troubled past. Sounds awesome.
From Dynamite, there’s Boys #71. We don’t often mention it here on the website, because it’s not an easy comic to recommend (though we do definitely love Garth Ennis’ foul-mouthed heroes), but we wanted to give it a little love this week because it’s so near the end! The last Boys storyline reaches its conclusion in the sixth and final part of The Bloody Doors Off. Only one issue until it’s all over!
Finally, we’re happy to announce a brand new Doctor Who series for all you Doctor Who fans out there! And it looks like the creative team are no slouches either. Andy Diggle wrote The Losers, which we’ve shone the spotlight on before, and Mark Buckingham is of course one of the biggest reasons we love Fables!
DOCTOR WHO VOL 3 #1

The Doctor is back! Welcome to a new, exciting era for everyone’s favorite Time Lord, as New York Times bestselling writer Andy Diggle (The Losers) pilots the TARDIS as the ongoing series architect. Joining him for this first arc is Eisner Award-winning artist Mark Buckingham (Fables), who also will provide covers for the series. Geronimo!
