The Pilot Season Winner is Back! 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. Bringing together writer Ron Marz (Witchblade, Angelus) and artist Kenneth Rocafort (Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer) for the first time.

    Could this be one of my new favorite series? The art is incredible, the character is endearing and this first issue is a perfect balance of introducing the new character to readers as well as establishing a solid storyline for future issues. I cannot wait for issue two! Read Full Review

    A splendid start to a rather promising comic book character and one I intend to keep a close eye on. Read Full Review

    I already possessed an admiration for the character and Ron Marz has a good handle on Velocity. With Kenneth Rocafort piloting the speedster's adventures, a review of the second issue is guaranteed. Read Full Review

    It's a straightforward story that ultimately pits speedster against ticking clock, but it's a refreshing story in that it isn't bound by company-wide crossover. This run is under way, the pacing is set for what looks to be a nice, reinvigorating 5K " not just a run around the block but certainly not an exhausting body-draining marathon. I haven't run in a while, so I'm hoping I don't twist an ankle with this, but from here, all looks well enough ahead. Bring on more "Velocity." Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 5, 2010

    I was pleasantly surprised by this issue, as Ron Marz gives us a good idea whats going on in her mind, explains her powers, gives us her backstory and sets up the ongoing storyline, while Kenneth Rocquefort makes it a very good-looking story. And, I was happy to note that my expectations of cheesecake were undermined, as the story-telling is quite good, and only one issue (a rear-view of her running) even goes anywhere near showing off her form over the story function. Velocity is an interesting read, and I will be checking out where this story goes in coming month. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Read Full Review
