-OH RIGHT.  BRUBAKER.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Velvet #1, right up until I thought about it for more than a second and OH RIGHT it’s a spy book from the team that made Captain America a must-read comic a few years back.  But even after appreciating the pedigree it still stands out;  the premise of our lead being a so-called supporting character is a strong one.  It doesn’t hurt that said protagonist is a tough-ass lady that rates at least an 8.5 on the Rucka scale.  Or that this opening issue have scattered a minefield of murder mystery all across the pages.  There’s a lot to love.  I love it when a no-brainer lives up to its high expectations.
