Music and death are intertwined in the latest issue of Fatale as the group of musicians and their house guest try to come to grips with the death of one of their own who was killed after trying to rape Josephine. Most of the first-half of the comic deals with the band arguing over the proposed course of action which includes hiding the body to protect both themselves and Josephine from questions without any easy answers.
As the story progresses the band listens to the demo of their new song which is later played during the band’s video shoot featuring Josephine dancing in front of a packed club. In both instances the song, inspired by her, and the shoot in which she looses herself to the melody, create very large ripples.
The first hearing of the song begins to jar the amnesiac’s memory, but the out-of-control riot caused in the club allows her enemy to find her as well as force the obsessed serial killer cop to loose control. By the end of the issue Josephine knows who she is, but is it to late to save herself and those who offered her shelter? Worth a look.
