    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.

    From the league of comics geeks, here is a look at issue number 2 of Agent Of Spectre due in comic book stores on April 7th:James Bond: Agent of Spectre #2 Preview (leagueofcomicgeeks.com)

    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.

  • writingsonthewallwritingsonthewall SpainPosts: 356MI6 Agent

    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.

    Issue # 3 arrives on May 5th, I am really looking forward to reading it after the shocking ending of issue 2 without going into spoilers.

  • writingsonthewallwritingsonthewall SpainPosts: 356MI6 Agent

    Well, just read Agent... #3 and it keeps delivering. The conflict is now clearly defined, characters feel like themselves and, barring any egregious mistakes in the second half of the story, this is a must buy for me once it's collected in hardcover form. Highly recommended.

    Just got my copy of issue #3 this week, and I quite enjoyed it. Very pleased to see Felix Leiter again as well. Looking forward to reading the next issue.

    I've been meaning to post this link for some time, but dawdled because I haven't really taken the time to explore the site. Its huge. All fans of James Bond in comics form should check it out...

    Comics Royale 007

    ...is a huge archive of scans of foreign language James Bond comics published since the 1960s, translated into English. From Argentina, Chile, Sweden, Japan, Spain and more... I wonder how many of these were actually authorised?

    Grouped into subsections by different countries and series, there's entirely original stories and bizarro adaptation of the books and the films with new story elements padding them out.

    Fans of the various American series published in the 1980s and early 90s know there were a few unfinished stories, and this section of the site has unpublished artwork from some of those stories.

    The Webmaster Dossier page tells us this whole site including translations is the work of university professor Clinton Rawls, so there's a hardworking and mighty generous Bond fan we should all give props to!

    @caractacus potts: Thank You for the heads up about the Comics Royale website, I checked it myself and I was amazed at the amount of content the webmaster had collected so far. Also, I just wanted to mention that the next issue of Agent of Spectre comes out on Wednesday of this week. I am looking forward to reading it.

    Just a quick update, July 21 is when Agent Of Spectre Issue #5 comes out. I am looking forward to it, the comic books have kept me going during the long wait for No Time To Die.


    UPDATE: Got my copy of issue #5 yesterday, what a read. For spoilers sake I will not go into detail, but I really enjoyed how this story ended. Also, their was an advertisement at the back of the book for the next story which is coming out in October titled Himeros. More information about it can be found here: Himeros Preview - Dynamite announces a new James Bond comic adventure that echoes real-world events - James Bond 007 :: MI6 - The Home Of James Bond (mi6-hq.com)

    Has anybody read the latest from Dynamite? Himeros, I believe it’s called. Wondering whether to take the plunge.

  • PPK 7.65mmPPK 7.65mm Saratoga Springs NY USAPosts: 1,130MI6 Agent

    @Miles Messervy: Yes, issue number 1 of Himeros arrived this week and I picked it and read it right away. Really like the art work, and the storyline involving Human Trafficking makes for an exciting read. Looking forward to the next issue.

    I read issue 1. Not a bad table setter. Interested to see where they go with it.
