    1. So far I was under the impression that everything by Rucka is at least okay, but this is just a bunch of tired cliches slapped together and sold as a hardcover book. Completely pointless and very disappointing.


    2. Bullet Review:Rucka Fan-Girl here. This was probably one of the most disappointing Rucka reads, just because I felt like I've read this story or seen a form of this story at least 67 times before.Amnesiac Girl? Check.Appears nude in a subway? Check.Supernatural powers? Check.Woman has to avoid being raped/sexually assaulted multiple times? Double check!It's not inherently bad, per se, and I do like Rucka's pro-woman message (I feel that Veil is a more pro-active, empowered woman than most female [...]


    3. "Veil" is an effective horror graphic novel from a proven writer in Greg Rucka. It's about a creature who was summoned from dark magic but seems to retain an innocence and vulnerability that makes predators want to prey on her and protectors want to keep her safe. The artwork is beautiful but also disturbing. The prevalence of sewer rats will creep out those with musophobia. They have a weird psychic connection with Veil that adds a disturbing connotation to the story. The urban setting adds to [...]


    4. A naked woman wakes up in the subway surrounded by rats. She walks out onto the streets of NYC spouting gibberish. Dante honestly wants to help her while some other street toughs want her for more nefarious purposes. Everyone that meets her desires to possess her. So just who is this strange woman?The Good: Dante and Veil were interesting.The Bad: The plot in this thing was telegraphed from the get go. I'm a big fan of Greg Rucka's and this is the first time I felt disappointed.The Ugly: It felt [...]


    5. Underwhelming to say the least. Greg Rucka's story lacks engaging storytelling and the artwork by Toni Fejzuli, although sometimes pretty to look at, doesn't help at all. This goes back to my comic shop.


    6. What do you do when you give the demon you summoned the choice of free will? And what does free will really mean? These are the questions that emerge from the first five chapters of the Dark Horse comic VEIL written by Greg Rucka with art by Toni Fejzula. A beautiful naked woman wakes up amidst rats in an abandoned subway stop. Confused and muttering seemingly nonsensical words, she wanders out into the street and is soon accosted by street thugs who would take advantage of her. She finds a savi [...]


    7. Reminiscent of spending nights at a strip club; place felt like heaven, but my brain always craved more nude women!


    8. I enjoyed it, but the narrative was predictable. Nearly every element was a cliche. The comparisons to literary fiction on the back need to be considered based on their sources. Is their idea of literary fiction Stephen King and Dean Koontz? Mostly,Steve Gerber andChris Claremont dealt with the concepts here better in their stories of Daimon and Satana Hellstrom for Marvel Comics.


    9. I like the artwork. It's offbeat.That's about it. I hardly believe this is the same Greg Ruckay thing linking is a violent female character lead.Otherwise this is just a ho hum, not worth it read about a demon and the heart of gold hood that sets her free


    10. This was a weird comic that involved the summoning of a succubus and the sort of random good v. evil mindset that comes around with it. As I read it, I was totally into it, but the more time away from it, the bigger the holes appear to be in terms of, well, everything. The rushed structure, the entire concept… it just doesn’t really work on a whole. There’s nothing wrong with a quick, consumable demon story in comic form that can be read in one sitting, but I think I dove in more because o [...]


    11. Veil is a pretty good story with some great art. I was impressed with the panels, they are well done. The story revolves around veil who is summoned to our world and realizes that she might not be in control. The cover of the book gives away the plot pretty well so there isnt much mystery. I still enjoyed the story and the art.


    12. Picked this up on a whim during the Halloween sales, totally glad I did.Artwork is stunning, the way the rats are used was an interesting take, no holds barred on the gore, and yet it still manages to capture sweetness.



    13. This review originally appeared on Pop Verse.In March 2014, Dark Horse comics began publishing the miniseries Veil. This creator-owned comic series comes from the mind of the Eisner Award winning writer Greg Rucka with the artistic talents of Toni Fejzula. The hardcover collection of all issues was released in January 2015.I’m a big fan of Greg Rucka’s Image Comics series Lazarus, but apart from that, I can’t say I’m overly familiar with his work. When I first saw Veil, I admit that it w [...]



    14. The fourth star was for the art. Truly visionary for a character that is often overly sexualized. As a fan of Rucka, I was not blown away by his writing but I will check out other volumes of this comic if the artist returns.


    15. This was honestly disappointing. It's fine, but it feels like more of a preamble than a story arc, and the plot, though well-intended, is not exactly up to the cloak and dagger complexity Rucka is known for.The story is that Veil has been summoned by an occultist backed by very expensive financiers. She has extensive power over men--her presence attracts them to her, and she's also superhumanly strong in her own right. But nearly every man in the story is trying to control her--the rich men, the [...]


    16. Went into this one from cover alone. Definitely started off with mystery of nude female in a subway station. Before too long we are swinging along to "Species" style or "V/H/S" movie type occult violence ala Constantine. Artwork has a slanted Aeon Flux appeal which was acceptable. Felt after a little slow buildup the ending felt just a bit rushed. Interesting that evidently a volume 2 exists.


    17. He de reconocerlo: esperaba más de este Veil de Greg Rucka y Toni Fejzula. Es posible que cuando me propuse abrir las tapas del cómic y devorar sus páginas de una sentada necesitaba que, pese a las buenas referencias, mi cerebro obtuviese un argumento más enrevesado, más complejo o con una mayor cantidad de elementos sobrenaturales (aún a riesgo de que todo sea demasiado recargado). Pero eso no quiere decir que Veil no sea un buen cómic al fin y al cabo, ya que tras esa aparente sencillez [...]


    18. I like Greg Rucka and I'm almost an impulse buyer for all his stuff: Gotham Central, Queen and Country, Whiteout and of course, Lazarus! Only Stumptown is missing from my collection, but that's because I couldn't convince myself to buy it after I read it from the library.With Veil, we have a story about a black guy from the hood which falls in love with this weird and confused girl, fresh out of hell. People are after her, including a cultist and a demonic ratlet's just say I liked it and I need [...]


    19. A naked woman wakes in a subway station, surrounded by rats. Dazed, she wanders out into the streets of New York City. Not safe. Luckily one of the guys she encounters, Dante, decides she needs protection and gets her somewhere safe or so he thinks. As Veil's powers and origins are revealed, Dante is profoundly freaked out, but in the end neither can abandon the other. Fejzula and Tomić have created some absolutely gorgeous art, and I love the relationship between the main characters Veil and D [...]


    20. Some amazing artwork here, though the story takes its time getting started. At the end of issue #5, we still don't know much about what's going on or why***Update***After further review, I've discovered this is apparently a complete, 5-issue story, with no further issues currently planned. With that information in hand, I have to drop my rating from 4 stars down to about 2 1/2, since the story is really under-developed. The artwork is still a standout, though.


    21. The art in this book is gorgeous and haunting. And the narrative, while not terribly complex from a plotting perspective, exists on several levels. The story is about power structures as much as it's about the mystery surrounding Veil. It's a good read. It's pretty. And I'm sure I'll be thinking about it's contents for a while after reading. But for all these qualities, I couldn't escape the constructed feel of the story.


    22. Rucka sets a great mood and feel that leaves the reader guessing at the main character's origin, purpose. Her development progresses nicely through the chapters and we gain pieces of information that don't tell us exactly what/who she is. Rather, he lets us fill in the blanks and create what we think of as Veil.The artwork is apropos of the story, moody and messy.


    23. I expected more from Rucka The characters aren't really fleshed out, which made me care very little about them. I found the art inconsistent too. Some frames were very well done, but in others I found it hard to see what was going on. I'm not sure if there'll be a second volume, but if there will be I'll let that pass.


    24. Life for a woman in a male-driven world, this story def catches attention, but I'm not sure where it is going to go from here. Kind of like a girl Hellboy or Constantine. I think the world is nicely built but I wish the character of Veil was more fleshed out, so to speak. The artwork is nicely gothic and even horrible but in a good way.


    25. This was alright so far. I enjoyed that the heroic character was a black male character. It was refreshing to see a character like that in comics, the main character Veil was a blank slate at the moment, due to her amnesia. That being said there was a fun setup that might lead to other good stories.


    26. via NYPL - A rare Rucka miss - treaded too many cliches and didn't do enough with the question of Veil's free will to rise above. The artwork - honestly, didn't move me one way or another. It was serviceable.


    27. In which Rucka and Fejzula cram a universe of woman-fear into a tight little tale of evil, featuring sinister corporate ops, a villain who looks like Max Headroom, an excellent rat-control plot device, and a strangely empty title heroine. Evil, gory fun.


    28. Very much out of Rucka's usual wheelhouse, but damn, he's good. The artist is not one I had heard of before but his style grew on me very quickly. Striking and unusual color choice. Would love to see a second volume.
