DISCUSSION

THE FADE OUT: ACT TWO

Writer: Ed Brubaker

Artist: Sean Phillips

Publisher: Image Comics

Cover Price: $12.99

A movie stuck in endless reshoots, a writer damaged from the war and lost in the bottle, a dead movie star and the lookalike hired to replace her. Nothing is what it seems in the place where only lies are true.

The second act of BRUBAKER and PHILLIPS’ biggest hit ever begins with a bang! Someone knows who killed Valeria Sommers, but can our “heroes” find them without exposing themselves? And will their search lead them to answers they don’t want to find?
