Fatale, Volume 1: Death Chases Me (2012)
3.93 of 5 Votes: 4
Logging book one but read the whole series. Sometimes Brubaker really really disappoints me (with his mainstream work in particular). He often has good atmosphere or stories but he can't quite nail the characterization or dialogue. This is especially a problem when he's writing a supposed spy rif...
Fatale 1: La muerte me persigue (2013)
3.93 of 5 Votes: 2
I picked this up more out of curiosity than a real desire to read an Ed Brubaker book that wasn't Batman. But I found that I loved it. The mystery, the creep factor and the artwork are all plus tens. I loved every page even when I thought after flipping through initially I wouldn't care much f...
Fatale, Tome 1 : La mort aux trousses (2012)

Someone recommended me this, based on the fact that I like noir fiction and I enjoyed Brubaker’s run on Captain America. It’s a mix of noir and horror, and just on those grounds, I don’t think it really worked for me. The femme fatale trope can be fun, but I never really got into this. Maybe it’s...
Gotham Central Deluxe Edition, Book 1: In the Line of Duty (2004)
4.37 of 5 Votes: 4
My god. There are a lot of GREAT Batman stories. Hell, most of DC's must read titles are Batman stories. Gotham Central should be ranked among those. This volume takes a simple concept: How does the GCPD function when they have Batman and super villains? It takes that concept and Brubaker and Ruc...
Captain America Winter Soldier (2004)
4.3 of 5 Votes: 4
The husband got me this for my birthday because of my love for the movies. It was a very interesting comparison between Steve Rogers in the movie and Steve Rogers in the comic. It may be comic blasphemy but I do prefer what they've done with the movies. There was a lot more background in the book...
El último de los inocentes (2012)

This was my first foray into the CRIMINAL world, though I've been a huge fan of other Brubaker/Phillips books for ages. I hadn't gotten around to picking up a volume until our Ladies' Comic Book Club chose it as our November read...and man, am I glad we did.Brubaker is fantastic at writing noir. ...
Winter Soldier, Vol. 1: The Longest Winter (2012)
3.94 of 5 Votes: 2
A decent spy thriller starring the freshly revived Bucky Barnes. Set in the present, he is teamed up with ex KGB agent-come- Avenger Black Widow and sent to take care of old friends and enemies from his soviet winter soldier days. Gorillas packing heat, spice this cold war spy story up just enoug...
Winter Soldier, Vol. 2: Broken Arrow (2012)

What is up with Black Widow’s pointy head on this cover? She looks like a new red Crayon.Aside from Nathasha’s freakish melon on the front, this is another great installment in which the Winter Soldier is trying to stop a renegade assassin that he trained years ago and who was roused from cryoge...
Fatale, Vol. 4: Pray for Rain (2014)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 4
The last volume had Josephine in four different historical settings and they revealed different aspects of the world and arc. This one is set in grunge northwest US, and gets gory. It doesn't to my mind advance the overall story arc all that much, but it is creepy, well done. And there's somethin...
Captain America by Ed Brubaker, Vol. 1 (2011)
3.71 of 5 Votes: 4
And this is the point in time when I soured on the series. The first six or seven "blasts from the past" felt like those good ol' times come 'round again. And then there was Bucky Cap. And Captain Britain. And all that great ensemble action. But now? It's just "very important and things will neve...
Captain America and Bucky: The Life Story of Bucky Barnes (2012)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 1
A depressing, revealing, action packed origin story of Bucky Barnes, known for being the kid sidekick of Captain America. Turns out (according to this, anyway), the kid was less kid and more ward of the Army. He is trained, groomed, and recruited as a special soldier, and in this version, more ba...
Winter Soldier, Vol. 3: Black Widow Hunt (2013)
3.91 of 5 Votes: 3
Aw, shit, this volume is just evil. Just as I was getting used to Natasha's relationship with Bucky, starting to enjoy it, of course Brubacker turns it upside down. I liked the guest appearance of Cap, Hawkeye, Wolverine and Daredevil in this one, and the action is good -- I just wish the end did...
