Also I just wanted mention that issue #3 of the ongoing series arrives tomorrow on store shelves.
And here you have a first interview on the tone of the new ongoing: https://www.comicsbeat.com/vita-ayala-danny-lore-james-bond-series-dynamite/
As for LALD, Dynamite's web has it now as "Coming Soon!" and amazon, fwiw, lists it for Nov 5. We'll see.

Will James Bond: Origins continue? The last issue came out mid-August and I haven't seen news about anymore. I know issue twelve wrapped up that storyline but it feels like there is a lot more story to tell.
@Miles Messervy, I found the first series (the one written by Warren Ellis) absolutely enjoyable and a fine addition to the Bond mythos, as well as a fresh take on a modern Bond (and at the same time very much respectful to the literary character), one much more enjoyable than, say, SPECTRE or the Carte Blanche novel. But to each their own, and each one's tastes are each one's. I believe both Vargr and Eidolon could make for great movies if adapted, should EoN ever consider going that route. As for the other series and specials, all have their ups and downs, as most media do. But I have enjoyed this publisher's efforts more than others (the old Topps or Marvel comics come to mind.
@Big Bond Fan, @Jellyfish: issue 12 closes down the series, as PPK 7.65mm commented a few entries above. There will be 2 hardcovers with 6 issues each collecting the series. All in all, I liked it as both a period piece and a nice examination on Bond's early years. Reminded me of a b&w docummentary made circa Thunderball that went a bit over this. Also reminded me of the movie The Imitation Game, which I happened to catch on while reading the series.
