Velicity Jones Returns in... The Edge Of The World!

So, yeah, as the post title kind of gives away, Velicity Jones returns to the digital anthology Aces Weekly in a brand new adventure:

When a prehistoric virus - hidden for decades by the US Government - is rediscovered in the Arctic by the international terrorist Solange Moitessier, Velicity Jones finds herself in a deadly race against time to destroy it before it reaches civilization. 

But when Gideon Drake - the rogue British agent who betrayed Velicity - enters the fray, the world's greatest secret agent finds herself torn between duty and revenge...

It's worth pointing out here that this was actually conceived and written last year, well before *gesticulates wildly* everything. So, yeah, the "deadly virus" thing probably isn't in the best of tastes, all things considered, but I can only hope the people who read the story understand the long lead in when it comes to making comics. And, of course, if you are offended, I can only apologise profusely. It was never our intention, and it really is just very bad timing on our part.

Anyway. The Edge Of The World is - like its predecessors (The Devil's Breath, available in Aces Weekly issue 29, The Godcutter Affair, available in issue 37 and The Silent Forest, available in issue 41) - a stand alone, self-contained story, designed to be read as a whole or in weekly instalments, depending on your preference. Although you don't need to have read the previous stories, it might be worth it this time around, as there are a few story threads from those that are brought into play here, and reading them all in order will give you an idea of how we're pulling all them together...

The Edge Of The World is, arguably, the most ambitious Velicity Jones story so far, too (not to mention the hardest to write, but that, as they say, is another story). The stakes are higher, the action's bigger and bolder, and we've really leaned into the pulp nature of the entire thing. It feels like we've finally got into the groove of what the series is supposed to be and where we want to take it.

It's also - I think - the best one we've done so far, but you can judge that last point for yourself when the first episode arrives exclusively in Aces Weekly volume 45, which launches on May 4th.

As ever, each issue of Aces Weekly will cost you £6.99 (or £1 a week, if you prefer!), and - with that one off payment - you'll get access to each new episode of The Edge Of The World every Monday, along with the latest chapters of five other stories.

So, what're you waiting for? Go! Get it!

Velicity Jones will return...
