I’m sorry, but I have to interrupt Bond 365...
If you are not into comics, then maybe this will entice you to head down to your local comic book shop and pick up a Previews catalogue. Flip right to page 308. Drool. Turn page. Drool some more. Then, immediately sign up to start a subscription (pull list) and put the new James Bond series from Dynamite at the top of your list!
The first story arc of this ongoing series is titled “Vargr” and is written by award winning writer Warren Ellis (Hellblazer, Red, Fell, Transmetropolitan, Judge Dredd) with interiors by artist Jason Masters (Wolverines, Legends of the Dark Knight, The Vampire Diaries).
Here’s the description of the series from the September 2015 issue of Previews:
James Bond returns to London after a mission of vengeance in Helsinki to take up the workload of a fallen 00 Section agent. But something evil is moving through the back streets of the city, and sinister plans are being laid for Bond in Berlin… (p. 309)
Here is the main cover by Dom Reardon, who has worked on Tharg’s Terror Tales, Caballistics, Inc. and Raven’s Gate (adapted by Tony Lee from Bond author Anthony Horowitz’s novel):
|Oh yeah! Fantastic cover!|
But, if that cover isn’t quite to your liking, there are several incentive covers by fantastic artists in the industry today to choose from:
Cover artists include: Francesco Francavilla (Fear Agent, The Black Beetle, Marvel’s Captain America), Stephen Mooney (Grayson, Secret Origins), Dan Panosian (Wolverine, Incredible Hulk, WitchBlade), Gabriel Hardman (Invisible Republic, Kinski), Glenn Fabry (Judge Dredd, Preacher, Hellblazer), Jock (Judge Dredd, The Losers, Detective Comics), and Jason Masters. Or, if you are an artist or have an artist in mind to do a cover for you, then pick up a couple of blank covers. I know I want one of each!
And.....to help push you toward the world of comics, a page of interiors were included in the catalogue's coverage. The final art will be in color, but it looks pretty good in black and white.
The series drops on November 4 (Happy birthday to me!), so you can get some reading done before SPECTRE opens in US cinemas on November 6!
Please note that the cover art shown in Previews is pending licensing approval, so the final covers could change.
