The creative team of VELVET finally finishes its first foray in VELVET #15 that is also
the finishing part of the story’s third story arc entitled ‘The Man Who Stole the World’. And seriously, Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting deliver another mind-blowing finisher to make this mini-series worth reading multiple times.
It starts with a corpse of the femme fatale and ends with her enjoying the tropical offerings of the tropics. How could that happen?!? Well, that’s the beauty of reading, enjoying and dissecting Brubaker’s masterpieces, you end up THINKING INTELLIGENTLY! This issue reminds me of reading some of his works in Fatale, Sleeper, and even Captain America; but this time around, the writer explains the trick in the most rationale and logical way possible, without any science fiction mambo-jumbo or deux machina nonsense ever. But readers need to pace themselves to get the benefits of reading this mind-twisting chapter. Also, this one explains the mystery of behind the protagonist’s quest for revenge of her most beloved.
Steve remains on top of his game. His sequential paneling, illustrations from page one to the satisfying finale, and facial emotional projections are some of his great artisitc executions yet to date, even surpassing some of his Captain America-run artistic deliveries. The car chase scenes are almost a Jason Bourne-feel, especially the pivotal plot twist there. Despite the fact that the femme fatale is around in her forties, her beauty remains in the hands of the great artist.
Velvet #15 also features the preview of another Ed Brubaker upcoming project, and the writer’s advisory that Velvet as a series continues. Anyway, this one caps up the first half of the projected long story the creative team has to offer in the near future. But for the mean time, let’s give our beloved femme fatale the biggest break she deserves; and better yet, let’s call HOLLYWOOD to give her either the HBO/cable television series and/or movie adaptation treatment. Imagine, Velvet goes on a head-to-head collision with Jason Bourne and James Bond!
