Velicity Jones Flies Solo!

That cracking creation of Lee Robson and Bryan Coyle, secret agent Velicity Jones, has just arrived on Comixology and Gumroad.

First published in Volume 29 of the digital anthology Aces Weekly, the character’s first adventure, Velicity Jones: The Devil’s Breath (reviewed here) has been re-packaged under the Mallet Productions brand into a stand alone one-shot comic, re-lettered by Bolt-01, with new cover art from Brian Coyle.

The Devil’s Breath is available now via Comixology, priced $2.99, and you can also buy it from Gumroad, too, for the same price.

All text shamefully pinched from John Freeman on Down the Tubes – the finest comics news service available.

New Comic – Symbolism Rewired.

Art by Roland Bird.

Here’s the thing – I lettered this strip for ACES Weekly by writer Joshua Spiller and artist Roland Bird. So there you have my ‘vested interest’ out of the way.

Creator blurb–

“Silence… silence and poetry fills my thoughts…”

From a deeply surreal and disturbing dream, a woman awakes in a strange sleeping pod, in a disconcertingly deserted laboratory. She has no idea who she is. And even her own mind now feels alien to her…

Set in a faintly estranging London of the not-too-distant future, Symbolism Rewired is a cerebral and grounded piece of sci-fi, that both explores how symbolism may be at the root of human consciousness, and operates as a kind of low-key biography of a fictional future human being.

So now the strip is back to being creator owned (as all ACES WEEKLY strips are, David Lloyd just asks for an exclusive for two years) and Joshua has collected the strip to be read in one sitting and made it available via Gumroad.

The complete strip is available for a mere £1.50 and it is recommended.
