Spy thriller comic collection

Before the Living End - Steve Epting, Ed Brubaker

 

 

This comic collection by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting takes place in the world of intelligence agencies, of betrayal and moles, of assassination and combat.

 

The central character, Velvet, works as a secretary for an intelligence agency but has a past as an agent. She is forced to return to her past life and her fighting and espionage abilities as the plot develops. Ending on a bit of a cliffhanger as she delves into the world of double-agents and traitors, Volume 2 follows on.

 

Well-written and nicely-illustrated, this is recommended to all fans of the espionage genre.
