The Pull List (10/23/13): Velvet reunites a superstar team

Posted By on Wed, Oct 23, 2013 at 2:27 PM

This week's Title You Can't Miss is also a debut. Velvet #1, from Image Comics, deserves the nod, if not just for the return of the Ed Brubaker/Steve Epting creative team. After the recent Fatale and Criminal, Brubaker continues his trend of one-word titles and provides this new series that follows a Moneypenny-like secretary at an intelligence agency who must enter the field against allies.

The ongoing tale is exciting for a few reasons. One, it's refreshing to see another female protagonist enter the comicsphere with such a high-profile team. Image is adding this story to an already stellar lineup of series against the mold. Two, Brubaker and Epting do spy drama better than any other current team. Now, they won't have to stay within the confines of a mainstream character with mainstream continuity.

So check out this new series today - and let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Otherwise, let me know what else has you excited.
