The issue is written by Darren G. Davis and Terrance Griep, penciled by Nadir Balan, colored by Travis Walton, inked by Sven Dyson and lettered by Payton Gauldin. Covers are by Balan and an incentive cover by Randy Green.

Here's how the book is described:

"Back in the 19th Century, a secret group of ladies were gathered to protect Queen Victoria ... at all costs! These highly trained operatives became known as Victoria's Secret Service. Flash forward 150 years and set in a restricted area inside the Ministry of Defense, only a select few have access to the top secret Compound, where inside a high-tech institution trains England's most elite soldiers. Their mission: relieving any threat associated to the Crown, whether it means going undercover at the meetings of the Houses, or foiling a terrorist plan ... that's what the VSS live for!"

Victoria's Secret Service, which has already been optioned for a movie and has a toy line in development, will launch as a monthly series in November.
