The first volume of Velvet was a winner on every level, so it’s far from surprising that the second volume is every bit as good. The art remains stellar and perfectly matched to the subject and tone of the book. The espionage is exciting and convincing. And the overarching story just gets more and more compelling. There are a few answers thrown out here, but also new questions. Deeper down the rabbit hole, so to speak.
I loved the first volume for being a pitch perfect spy book, with a fantastic female lead. Volume two delivers everything that I liked about volume one, and it adds layers without giving me the sense that Brubaker is making this up as he goes along. More, please.
