    Just finished reading Reflections Of Death about two weeks ago, I really enjoyed it. It really was a step up from the monthly series and each of the writer and artist team did a really great job with their induvial contributions. Fingers crossed that more stories are on the way in the near future.

    Good to know. I will plan to check it out.

    The new series (written by Christos Gage, a well-known Marvel writer) is to be titled “James Bond: Agent of SPECTRE” and will co-star Blofeld. Color me interested...

    The new book The Lost Adventures of James Bond by Mark Edlitz, has a section on the Dynamite comic book series that is worth reading. Apparently, the World War II set series Origin was going to have a follow up series titled James Bond 1942, which sadly got canceled due to the Origin storyline not selling enough issues at retail. Edlitz also writes about the 1990's Dark Horse comics series, which had two separate storylines canceled before all of the issues were printed.

    Looking forward to Agent Of Spectre, it sounds like a good story and I really liked Luca Casalanguida's artwork in the Kill Chain series. It hits comic book stores on March 3, so be sure to keep your eyes open for it.

    Agent of SPECTRE 1 was released today, and I just finished reading it.

    Wow. Great story choices, as far as I'm concerned, and can't wait for the next issues in order to see how the story unfolds. Christos Gage, the writer, knows how to handle the tone, the wittiness and the stakes. If well handled, this could easily find its way to my shelves once it's collected in book form. Definitely keep an eye out for it!

    Got my copy of Agent Of Spectre today and I quite enjoyed reading it. I agree that Christos Gage is the writer the series needed, he really seems to understand the characters and their motivations well. I also enjoyed the call back to the earlier story Eidolon as well.

    Got my copy of Agent Of Spectre #2 today, without going in to spoilers I quite enjoyed it. The artwork is really well done and the relationship between Bond, M and Moneypenny has never come off stronger outside the movies than it has here.

    Good to hear! I’ll likely wait until the end and then get the compendium of the quality holds. It’s the same artist who did Hammerhead, correct? I thought that one had excellent art.

    Just read #2 myself. Not going into spoiler territory either, as it should be enjoyed by oneself, but wow. What a cliffhanger. Gage is outdoing himself with this one. Escalating positions in my personal top.

    Characterisation keeps being spot on, and the stakes keep getting higher. Would not mind this being adapted into a movie, it's THAT good.
