The former Captain America creative team of Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting are back. Tomorrow Image Comics is releasing their creator-owned spy series, Velvet. This time, it’s not another spy book driven by a James Bond-inspired agent. Velvet Templeton is just the secretary for the world’s greatest spy. Or is she? Think of Velvet as if Miss Moneypenny were a tough-as-nails secret agent in her own right. When the world’s greatest secret agent is killed, Velvet can no longer keep her cover intact.
It’s the next hard-boiled mystery series by Fatale writer Ed Brubaker. Steve Epting’s artwork in Issue #1 is striking and his heroine sultry and powerful. His work is reminiscent of Mike Grell’s James Bond mini-series. Bettie Breitweiser’s colors rounds out the triple threat behind this cool new series.
Here’s a preview of Velvet, Issue #1, for borg.com readers courtesy of Image Comics:
