    This penultimate episode of The Man Who Stole the World does a brilliant job of cranking up the tension to breaking point. Velvet's story so far has been a tangled web of intrigue and double-cross of the best possible vintage. We've hadfourteen issues of fine 70's spy thriller dining and I'm ready for the end, I'm dying to find out what will happen. I can honestly say there has not been one bad issue of this story so far, and partfourteen is definitely not an exception to this rule. Read Full Review

    Velvet #14 is a sort of strange issue in some regards. Its an enjoyable read and it definitely sets up future issues with some exciting new dynamics. The choice made here to include Nixon in the flesh is bold, and I respect that the creative team went for something so risky. Nixons presence, though, takes me a little out of Velvets story, and I think could make the conspiracy at the center of the story too linked to the Watergate cover-up. So there are some thematic and tone quibbles I have, but Velvet #14 is still an intriguing and significant issue. Read Full Review
