A Review: VEIL #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of VEIL #1 from Dark Horse Comics. Greg Rucka writes, and Toni Fejzula draws and colors.

A young woman wakes up in an abandoned subway station with no memory and walks up into a really bad neighborhood. Fortunately there’s one decent guy in the area, Dante, who takes her in before she can get hurt. But when some bad guys follow them and confront the woman, things get really weird.

She calls herself Veil, and she appears to be a total amnesiac. A blank slate, one might say, and a really nice beginning for a discovery story. And dropping hints about supernatural abilities this early also really opens up the possibilities. The art is fantastic, too; the first six pages are free of dialogue, but the story they tell is striking.

This is a first issue that really sells the mystery of this character. Getting to know Veil will be a cool process, but I also look forward to getting to know Dante and how he fits into this story. So pick it up today.

VEIL #1 is available now at your FLCS and online at darkhorse.com.
