Manson meets Lovecraft in Fatale Volume 2

Are you in the mood for a fast-paced hard-boiled thriller filled with sex, violence, and the supernatural?  This is the comic for you.  In the second story arc of Ed Brubaker's and Sean Phillips's Fatale, a Manson-like cult called The Method Church terrorizes Hollywood.  But the demon-worshipers find that the temptress star of the series is more than a match.  

The plotting, dialog, and art are all excellent.  The comics could easily serve as the basis for a movie or tv series, and indeed, I read the entire series in one sitting like I was watching a movie.

The five-issue arc is $8 at Amazon.  And you can read the first issue in the series for free at Comixology.
