Velocity #2 (of 4)

As the members of Cyberforce lay dying from a fatal techno-virus, their only hope for survival is their teammate Velocity. Carin Taylor has never been more in need of her super-speed as the races around the globe, trying to find and cure her teammates before the same virus kills her. The issue continues the inaugural creative union of writer Ron Marz (Witchblade, Angelus) and artist Kenneth Rocafort (Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer).

Notes: I’ve read an advance PDF of Velocity #2, and it’s definitely worth checking out. I should have a review up later tonight. Update: Here’s my review!

CBR has a 5-page preview of the book.
