NYCC: Greg Rucka To Write “Veil” for Dark Horse


It was announced at New York City Comic Con today that Greg Rucka, currently writing Lazarus for Image, will be working on another creator-owned series this March entitled “Veil.”

Veil is is a 5-issue miniseries written by Rucka and will feature art by Serbian artist Toni Fejzula (Central Zero). It’ also Rucka’s first creator-owned series with Dark Horse. They describe the series like this:

“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?”

Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief Scott Allie had this to say about the book to CBR:

“‘Veil’s’ a perfect addition to a lineup that includes ‘Buffy,’ Kelly Sue [DeConnick’s] ‘Ghost’ and ‘Serenity’s’ River Tam. What you see here at first is a vulnerable young woman, especially on that first cover – but this is Greg Rucka, so obviously there’s a lot more to her. All I can say is, she’s not what you expect, and it’s an honor to add a creator-owned book from Greg to our roster.”

Veil #1 will be released digitally and in stores March 5th.
