Recently I've been listening to a podcast called You Must Remember This which deals with a number of tales about the first century of Hollywood, and so when I was pressed to pick up The Fade Out: Act One and Two I was primed to read them. They deal with life in Hollywood in 1948, and a number of events that they elude to are covered in the podcasts. I'm liking this series, a Hollywood noir setting, while a WWII vet scriptwriter is trying to figure out how an actress ended up dead. There's still clues to find after two graphic novels, and I'm still interested. Good stuff.
