The Fade Out: Act Three by Ed Brubaker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The darkest, grimiest and most profane noir I've read in a while. As expected, everything goes to hell in these final issues and the creators do a great job pulling it all together to a satisfying ending. The ambitious work covers a lot of bases, alcoholism, sexual abuse, child molestation and post traumatic stress all in a well researched 1948 Hollywood setting. Brubaker, Phillips, and Breitweister make a superb creative team. Great stuff.
