A tense spy thriller, Velvet Vol. 1 is the concept other reviewers say it is, but I found the swirling mysteries around Velvet Templeton even more interesting. Suffice to say, looking forward to more... ( )

This was an amazing tale! Sharp, with enough twist to keep it riveting without getting muddy... no "Wait... what??" moments of confusion. And the time frame... classic for this kind of story.
Thanks to JB for recommending this to me - yes, V is the bomb, and I love the costuming!

Run to your library to local indie comic store and get this NOW! ( )

Wow, really enjoyed this one~ feels like something I would watch on the big screen. Or rather it's the graphic novel equivalent of a fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes? Woot! ( )

Went in blind and presently surprised. Twists and turns on the traditional spy story with a great sense of place and fantastic art. ( )
