Just found out that the new comic story Eidolon from Dynamite comics arrived  yesterday. Looking forward to checking it out. More details about the series here:https://www.mi6-hq.com/sections/articles/comics_eidolon_preview?t=&s=&id=04099

It seems that one of the covers is inspired by the the LTK poster photo, which is actually an improvement IMO.

Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

Got the first issue of Eidolon and I must stay that I enjoyed so far. Hope that James Bond gets the girl this time.


Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

Recently bought the graphic novel of VARGR, good series, beautiful art. Will wait for Eidolon to be published all in one book, I prefer having it like that!

Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

Just found out today that in October their is another mini-series called Hammerhead written by Andy Diggle with art by Luca Casalanguida. More about it here: https://www.mi6-hq.com/sections/article … p;id=04118

Looking forward to reading both Hammerhead and the rest of Eidolon.


Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

Got issue #8 of Eidolon today, it was a great read with lots of action. Eidolon is an old term for spectre or ghost, as M mentions during his debriefing with Bond and Bill Tanner. Also both Tanner and Bond have correctly guessed that someone is working behind the scenes prevent the information Cadence Birdsong has from being learned. Looking forward to the next issue.


Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

I hadn't read comics for years but have really enjoyed the marvel films and Dark Knight trilogy. When I found out there was a Bond comic series I got them added to my son's order and have enjoyed them . Only up to #2 of Eidolon



Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

Short but good interview with the new writer of the Bond comic 'Hammerhead', Andy Diggle:

'Hammerhead' sounds interesting. Mine is something of a minority view, but I like it when the socio-political aspects of James Bond are explored, and I appreciate that Diggle asks "Is 007 a force for positive change, or a protector of vested interests?" It's a question worth asking.

Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

I just happened to read the first arc, "Vargr", and have to say I quite liked it. Ellis is always a sure bet, and even if some of the scenes are rehashes of already-made ones (Bond's escape at the beginning of #5 comes to mind) they're always edgy and witty. Definitely enjoyable, reads better as a book (out past August) yet the cliffhangers are well crafted. I could imagine this storyline becoming a Craig movie with some tweaking done to the script.

Will eagerly check Eidolon and Hammerhead.

Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

Just arrived today. Apart from Vagr I never read 007 Comics. However this being the classic version 1958-1960, it got me interested. Another addition or addiction (?) to the 007 literature collection.


this never happened to the other fellow


Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

Just ordered issues #4 &5 of Hammerhead today, looking forward to finishing the story. Also I ordered the first issue of the Felix Leiter series as well. Finally their is another storyline called Black Box featuring 007 which arrives in March. It is written by Benjamin Percy with art by Rapha Lobosco. The story finds Bond being hunted by a world class assassin who targets other assassins. The story also has Bond investigating a digital security breach. Looking forward to reading this when it arrives.

Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

Got issue number 3 of the Felix Leiter series today, looking forward to reading it. Also I am hoping to get Hammerhead # 6 soon, as my local comic book dealer sold out of it before I could purchase a copy. Really enjoying seeing James Bond in comic book form again after having read all of the Daily Express newspaper strips(via Titan Books collections of them) and a majority of the Dark Horse stories as well.  Permission To Die holds a special place for me since it was the first comic book adventure that I read and it took me two and half years to complete the series.


Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

Looks like everyone has positive reviews. I'll be ordering from Amazon soon.


Re: New Ongoing Bond Comic

The fourth issue of the Felix Leiter series arrives this week, really looking forward to reading. Also I plan on pre-ordering Service, the one shot comic that arrives in May, and I cannot wait for the next issue of Black Box to arrive. Hope that the sales pick up, MI6 reported that beginning with issue #2 of VARGR sales of the James Bond series have not been strong. Still other titles based on movies & TV properties have gone through difficulties  with sales and are still around. With no major news on Bond 25 and no new video games, I have come to really enjoy the comic books.
