I am an unabashed fan of Greg Rucka currently the writer of Lazarus from Image and one of my favorite writers of the women of DC Comics (Batwoman, Lois Lane, Wonder Woman, etc.) but really just comics in general given Stumptown, Queen & Country and so many others.
This week Rucka has a new comic out for Dark Horse called Veil. The official description is:
A beautiful girl wakes up in an abandoned subway station with no memory of how she got there. When men try to hurt her … they wind up dead. Where did she come from? And what is she capable of?
The first issue out tomorrow is a dark but vibrant tale that will have you wishing the next issue was out NOW. If you’ve seen the cover and preview, you’ll know what I mean by dark. If you haven’t here you go:
I’ve got a thing about rats so it is the power of Rucka that got me past that first image. I chatted with Rucka about the book and what readers can expect and … rats.
There is a comic out tomorrow with Lois Lane in the title. Hard to believe that for a character who had her own comic for 16 years, one that outsold Batman, that this would be a big deal. Lois Lane is the longest running female character in DC Comics. She made her first appearance in Action Comics #1 with Superman which means it is also her 75th anniversary this year. Here’s a look back at the comics of Lois Lane through the years.
