The Fade Out #12
Share:
Fake ending; the answer was pages prior
May 22nd, 2020
I posit that the recap told, explaining the whodunnit, is a red herring! The killer is revealed another way. Freaking.... Amazing. If you read this too quickly? Brubaker sums it up for you, but you're wrong. He said "maybe", but it's wrong. Brubaker dropped the hint and conclusion pages prior. Any one catch this as well? (I should search on this more before being so boldly confident), but I may have to submit a correction to Wikipedia now. Ha . I want to point out this is one of the rare books that the narrator in the captions, never is set to a character (except in issue #11). Usually at some point it's revealed (thinking Saga). As best as I can gather, this never happens on this series.

    Wait wait wait. Tina, the only sober one it would seem, said there were 4 guys, which kills my theory and also makes the throwback panel incorrect in issue #1! BRUBAKER!! argh. Anyone else have thoughts?

    I have not made it this far. I have only read the first 3 issues I believe.

    Honestly I'd have to go back and reread the whole thing. I don't remember their being a fake ending though but I could very well be wrong.

    I'm near positive. But could be wrong, of course. But that's why brubaker never comments about the ending in interviews.

    I'm a huge noir fan and this seems right up my alley. I was thinking of checking this out...you clinched it. Thanks!

    Can't say enough about it. I relished every issue. The research. The exposition. Pacing, colors, dialogue, twists, bravado.... You name it. AND.... Not ongoing forever. Made for 12 issues and stuck with it.
