Image are unveiling a whole load of new comics at their Expo today. Next up comes Velvet, a spy series from Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting.
Focusing on a Moneypenny-esque secretary who works for a spy agency, Velvet will see the eponymous heroine forced to go on the run:
She leaves her desk job and has to go on the run into the field against her own agents. Imagine Bond or MI done in a true Cold War scenario.

Brubaker says that he’s been wanting to do this series for a long time – but only so long as Epting was there to draw. The pair waited out Epting’s Marvel contract in order to finally get the book underway.
