My April favorites were The Island of Sea Women and The Republic if Thieves. Dopesick was also excellent.

And here's another Humble Bundle purchase I shouldn't have ignored for years. Velvet is a 43-year-old superspy who's been out of the game for a while but gets pulled back in when her agencymate is compromised and killed. It's full of intense, 1970s spy action, and I LOVE that the protagonist isn't 26. More like this, please.

This put me over 25 hours for #25InFive, too. Hurray! #comics

Spy stories are not really my thing, but I really liked these graphic novels. And I really like reading graphic novels on Hoopla!

For those of who may not already know her, I'd like to introduce Velvet Templeton. She's a smart, badass, awesome super spy! I read all three volumes of her series today and it was an amazing thrill ride from start to finish. If you like conspiracies, espionage, the 70s, and a strong female protagonist - this series is for you. 😃

MarriedtoMrT I read and loved the first volume. Glad to hear the rest are as good! 2y

Never underestimate the "secretary." When ex-agent (current assistant to the head) Velvet begins to take a closer look into the untimely and unusual death of the agency's best operative, she finds herself framed for his murder. Now she's coming out of retirement to kick-ass and take names and find out what the hell is going on. I loved it. Art was great. Story was smooth. Loved Velvet, a 40-something, sultry badass.

Amazing read. Like a 007 movie with a kick-ass woman in the title role and without all the boring parts! Will be ordering Vols. 2 and 3 from the library. And re-reading this tomorrow!

For those of us impatiently waiting for the next Bond to be a woman, this comic series is perfect. Highly recommended!

(Should be read alongside Modesty Blaise!)

I like the spy-thriller aspect of this, and I really like that Velvet is an older woman who still kicks ass (I mean, she's not elderly, but how often do we see a woman out of her 20s who is able to take out half a dozen men?)

I do love a lady-centered, historical fiction, spy graphic novel.
