  • Publisher’s description: Passions run high when a beautiful woman wanders out of an abandoned subway tunnel. With no memory of who she is or how she got there, Veil must figure out who to trust and what she is—an object of desire or a force to be reckoned with—as her past is revealed. Collects Veil #1–#5.
  • From our review of Veil #1: [Veil] is a breed apart from what some readers might have come to expect from “Rucka’s women.” Veil, as she is introduced in this debut issue, is clearly a damaged individual to a degree more obvious than any of Rucka’s previous creations. She wakes up naked and alone in the subway, seemingly afflicted with amnesia, exhibiting echolalia and other speech disorders, as well as what looks to be signs of a more generalized schizoaffective disorder. The circumstances of the character’s introduction, too, are quite different from what some readers familiar with Rucka’s prior work might expect. Veil is placed in a couple of situations with the potential for sexual violence early on, one of which requires the aid of a male passer-by, although it is clear that the scenario is put in play in the interest of establishing context and forwarding the narrative, not cheap prurience.”
