Spy thriller comic collection continues

The Secret Lives of Dead Men - Steve Epting, Ed Brubaker

 

 

This second volume 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. In this volume, she tries to find out who is behind setting her up and the death of her husband. This takes her across the world and finding “ghosts” from her past. Ending on a bit of a cliffhanger as she delves into the world of double-agents and traitors, Volume 3 follows on. Well-written and nicely-illustrated, this is recommended to all fans of the espionage genre.
