How will one enigmatic woman be able to control her own fate when so many others would choose to use her for personal gain? Veil, by Greg Rucka and Toni Fejzula, is a story shrouded in mystery and corruption that simultaneously displays the good and evil nature of humanity.

I was first introduced to Rucka’s powerful storytelling with Queen and Country, but unfortunately, have not read any of his other works — until now. With Veil, Rucka has managed to create the perfect blend of mystery, horror, and hope in a tale that is as much enchanting as it is heartbreaking. What impresses me the most about this book, is the focus that is placed on the morality of humans — what is the true focus of an individual’s heart? The tough questions and the wonderment of both the titular character and the graphic novel itself, in my mind, help solidify Rucka’s place as a top comics creator.

Veil #1 opens with a bizarre scene in an empty, locked subway filled with rats, pentagrams, money exchanging hands, a gun, and a crazy naked chick with amnesia. It makes no sense. Two pages into the book and my mind was already loaded with a cross-examiner’s list of questions.
