On The Shelf: @ImageComics Set To Release Brubaker & Epting’s VELVET This February
Writer Ed Brubaker (KILL OR BE KILLED, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), artist Steve Epting (Batwoman, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and colorist Elizabeth Breitweiser (OUTCAST BY KIRKMAN & AZACETA, KILL OR BE KILLED) will release a deluxe hardcover edition of the first 15 issues of their groundbreaking spy thriller series VELVET this February.
From the creators of Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes VELVET, a slick and sexy new take on the Cold War spy genre. What if the secretary to the man running the world’s most top secret spy agency was actually, once upon a time, their most dangerous weapon? VELVET is a groundbreaking work from one of the bestselling teams in comics, and now Velvet Templeton’s first major storyline is collected in one oversized deluxe hardback with behind-the-scenes extras and articles. A must-have for any Brubaker & Epting fan.
“It’s amazing to see all our hard work on VELVET finally collected in one big volume,” said Brubaker. “On top of our historical spy thriller story, this is some of the best work that Steve Epting and Elizabeth Breitweiser have ever done. It’s worth it for the art alone.”
“This book is the culmination of an something Ed and I first discussed almost ten years ago, and it’s extremely gratifying to see it finally realized in one collected edition,” said Epting. “I enjoyed working on VELVET more than any other project in my career for many reasons, not the least of which was collaborating with the best writer and the best colorist in comics.”
VELVET DLX HC (ISBN: 978-1-63215-915-1) will be ON THE SHELF in your local comic shop Wednesday, February 22nd and in bookstores Tuesday, February 28th.
