    Default It is official: Fatale is now an ongoing series

    Comics Alliance broke the great news in their recent Ed Brubaker interview.

    And issue 9 was the best yet.

    Glad to be reading a Brubaker monthly again.

    Although this is a great series and it is good news in general, I'm a little disappointed. It always seems like ongoing series lose their way the longer they go on.

    I think ongoing is a little misleading. The letter at the end of issue 9 basically said that he would take as long to tell the story as he needed. He's just not limiting himself to a set number of issues. But he didn't make it sound indefinite. If it takes 25 he'll go 25. If it takes 30 he'll go 30. But it sounds as if there is still a set story and it will come to an end.

    I like the idea that it is more "open ended" than ongoing. Brubaker is saying it will not end at an artificial point but go on as long as he needs to to tell his stories. This is more like a Vertigo book. But even there, those books can get lost in the middle. I think that what can help Fatale is that it is not one major plot but the story of Jo. So this could keep it from drifting too much.

    No i dont think this current mystery is strong enough for monthly series, they need to add more to world,mystery. Most important this series is cool but its not near as great as Criminals with Lawless and co.

    If they can publish Criminals arc at the same time, this is good news but if this takes their time away from their best works im not happy with the news.

    Criminals is a rare,alltime great crime,noir series and is the reason i followed Brubaker and Phillips every year doing an arc/mini.

    The more issues the better as far as I am concerned. It was nice news to read.

    Yeah i didnt really care if Fatale was 6 issues or 60 when i heard the news about it the first time. I was just thrilled any series by Bru/Phillips.

    The most important question to me is where is Criminals in the near future? Any news planning to write Criminals as usual along with Fatale this time.

    YAY!!!!

    And, again, however many issues it takes, it takes. For me, it's Fatale's characters that carry the story, although admittedly, the 'story' of Jo is a good hook, given her 'power' and life-longevity; but if and when another strong character is introduced, that can take 'the story' along for another set of issues, and so on. Heh-- and so on!

    THIS makes me feel better. I only read trades so I wasn't aware of the letter you mention. Thanks!

    Yeah it will depend on the creators ability to write new POV character after another in new arcs. Jo, the mystery is only the hook. I would think this would get old quickly if i didnt rate Bru/Phillops noir storytelling so highly.

    Critical acclaim = more stories. Not a bad thing if I say so myself. My only beef with the book is that for some reason I have difficulty remembering previous issues and continuously have to re-read.
    Gimme gimme shock treatment.

    That was difficult for me in the first arc. I think this second arc has much stronger male characters and it's easier for me to remember the men orbiting around Jo.
