The Fade Out Issues

BRUBAKER and PHILLIPS' best-selling series ever just keeps hitting! Charlie and his blacklisted friend Gil hunt Hollywood's back alleys for answers to Valeria Sommer's murder and cover-up, but the one man who might know something, ex-child star "Flapjack" Jones, has gone into hiding...unless he's dead in a ditch by the side of the road.
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 packed with bonus back pages articles only found in the single issues.
