Get Ready For Brubaker and Epting’s New Espionage Thriller, ‘Velvet’ [Preview]
The team that reinvented Sharon Carter’s super-spy character in the pages of Captain America is getting back together to tell tales starring a female spy of their own creation.
Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s new Image Comics series Velvet, originally revealed at this summer’s Image Expo, is set to arrive in comic-shops and digitally on October 23, and it’ll feature some really sharp-looking art influenced by the covers of spy novels from the 1960s and 1970s.
Here’s how Image’s press release describes the series:
Velvet Templeton is supposed to be just a secretary, the personal assistant to the Director of a top secret Intelligence Agency, but when the world’s greatest spy is killed, she quickly finds herself caught in a web of mystery and murder, as her own secret past comes to light.
You can sample a few Velvet pages below. Just don’t blame us if you’re inspired to drop a bunch of money on a Wingsuit and skydiving classes after reading it.
