That cracking creation of Lee Robson and Bryan Coyle, secret agent Velicity Jones, has just arrived on Comixology and Gumroad.
First published in Volume 29 of the digital anthology Aces Weekly, the character’s first adventure, Velicity Jones: The Devil’s Breath (reviewed here) has been re-packaged under the Mallet Productions brand into a stand alone one-shot comic, re-lettered by Bolt-01, with new cover art from Brian Coyle.
When the blueprints for the doomsday weapon known as “The Devil’s Breath” are to be auctioned to the highest bidder, the world’s greatest secret agent, Velicity Jones, sets out to make sure they don’t fall into the wrong hands.
But when the plans are revealed to be fake, Velicity soon finds herself caught in a web of lies and deceit, as she discovers there’s no one she can trust…
Velicity Jones #2 – The Godcutter Affair – is to follow later.
It’s also still available in Aces Weekly Volume 29, too (along with five other stories), priced £6.99, available as a back issue here.
