Single issues of complete series Fatale
I enjoyed this series a lot, though it is certainly not perfect. It's a good mixture of noirish detective story with cult/Lovecraft horror. Mostly serialized, with a few standalone issues which are weirdly in the midpoint of the series. After reading this I will definitely pick up some more by Brubaker/Phillips, I really enjoyed (most of) the writing and the art style.
Fatale chronicles the life of Josephine, or "Jo", an archetypal femme fatale who is seemingly immortal, having survived from the 1930s to the modern day unaged, and also has a supernatural ability to hypnotize men into becoming intensely infatuated with her, whether she wants them to be or not.
Through the decades, Jo struggles to understand and control her powers while being pursued by a violent cult. The cult worships cosmic gods reminiscent of Lovecraftian horrors, which are somehow tied to Jo.
