“The Hit List Agenda” heats up for Executive Assistant:Violet!

Executive Assistant Violet has mommy issues—namely, her mother is an Executive Assistant as well! To make matters worse, a love interest from her past causes old feelings to stir inside. And as if that weren’t enough, the events of “The Hit List Agenda” force Violet to prove her worth in protecting her employer Henry Vincent’s life from the merciless forces that want them both dead!

Aspen’s first ever Summer-spanning event, “The Hit List Agenda” continues right here in the pages of EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT: VIOLET!

Executive Assistant: Violet is another great book in the expanded line of Executive Assistant comic books. Like the blurb says, Violet has momma drama. As we found out in issue #1, Violet’s mother is the Executive Assistant formerly known as “Aster”. On top of her mother finding out her secret life, Violet is also confronted with other aspects of her past.

We learn more about Violet’s past before coming an Executive Assistant than we have any other character in this expanded “The Hit List Agenda” storyline. We learn that, as part of the recruitment process, Executive Assistants have to leave their personal lives behind. They stop just short of a Men in Black-esque complete wipe of their previous identities.

The tie-ins between this book and Executive Assistant: Iris #2 are the most intriguing of the series. There are huge clues in Executive Assistant: Violet #2 that will tip you off as to the eventual fate of Acteia. Hint: Villone is back!

Add in solid artwork (not my favorite in the series, but not horrible) and this is another mini-series to watch. Seeing the effects of the job on the women involved is very interesting.

I’m going to give Executive Assistant: Violet #2 4 out of 5 discarded engagement rings. It’s really good. Find issue #1 and start reading “The Hit List Agenda” now.
