Award winning writer Greg Rucka continues his current focus on creator-owned comics this March when "Veil" debuts from Dark Horse.

CBR News has the exclusive first word about the comic, announced today at the ICV2 presentation at New York Comic Con. "Veil," a 5-issue miniseries featuring art by Toni Fejzula, marks Rucka's first creator-owned collaboration with Dark Horse, which describes the series as follows:

"A beautiful girl wakes up in an abandoned subway station with no memory of how she got there. When men try to hurt her . . . they wind up dead. Where did she come from? And what is she capable of?"

"'Veil's' a perfect addition to a lineup that includes 'Buffy,' Kelly Sue [DeConnick's] 'Ghost' and 'Serenity's' River Tam," Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief Scott Allie told CBR. "What you see here at first is a vulnerable young woman, especially on that first cover - but this is Greg Rucka, so obviously there's a lot more to her. All I can say is, she's not what you expect, and it's an honor to add a creator-owned book from Greg to our roster."

The first issue of "Veil" debuts, in print and digitally on Dark Horse's app, on March 5.
