    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 4, 2015

    Velvet #12 is another fantastic issue in what has been an amazing series thus far. Brubaker, Epting and Breitweiser are skilled storytellers who are unfolding a spy masterpiece before us. I'm fine with the release schedule when the result is this damn good. Read Full Review

    The title has suffered some delays between issues recently, but "Velvet" #12 is a satisfying issue, up to the usual high standards of the creative team and well worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 23, 2015

    Steve Epting's art continues to be the perfect match for writer Ed Brubaker's words as Image Comics' spy thriller proves to be one of the best comics of the month yet again. We may not gain much ground in Velvet's investigation this month but I'm still all-in to see where it will eventually lead. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Nov 8, 2015

    Its pretty normal for series to have an ebb and flow of action from issue to issue. There have to be moments of set-up in order for the reveal to mean anything. At the end of Velvet #12 (in a letter-less letter page), Brubaker states that the next few issues of the series will be crazier than usual. So its understandable that this issue is setting the chess board. The dialogue and art are very strong, but I feel that the story is so complex that the set-up could be presented in a way that — while not losing the subtlety of the storytelling — makes it clearer where the story has been and where it is going.

    This series is still good, it just needs a more stable shipping schedule and a little shot in the arm. Read Full Review
