Velocity Mini-Series from Top Cow

Velocity, the winner of the 2007 Top Cow 'Pilot Season' event, will be published as a long-overdue solo mini-series later this year.

Top Cow and UGO have announced that the first issue of the four issue mini-series will go on sale on 26 May with a cover price of $3.99.

Carin Taylor is the fastest woman in the world. At least, she'd better be if she wants to save her own life and the lives of her Cyberforce teammates. When a former Cyberdata scientist - and test subject - seeks revenge against the members of Cyberforce, only Velocity can save her friends before the clock literally runs out.

One of the most popular characters from Marc Silvestri's Cyberforce series, Velocity will feature current Witchblade and Angelus writer Ron Marz along with Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer artist Kenneth Rocafort.

Along with some more background information about the Pilot Season event and this new Velocity series, including a few words from Ron Marz, Top Cow and UGO have released previews of two stunning Kenneth Rocafort covers for the first issue.

I've been enjoying the current Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer series and Velocity is a great character: this looks like being another great book from Top Cow.
