Dynamite Entertainment is excited to announce the upcoming release of James Bond: Solstice, the latest installment in their critically-acclaimed and ever-expanding James Bond universe. Multi Eisner-Award nominee Ibrahim Moustafa (Jaeger, High Crimes) has been named as both writer and artist on this visually stunning 30-page one shot, which is expected to hit shelves November 22, 2017.
In James Bond: Solstice, 007 accepts a mysterious, unofficial mission in Paris. He’s to pursue a dangerous Russian, and do…what is necessary. But is Bond the hunter, or the hunted?
Writer/Artist Ibrahim Moustafa said, “I am an absolute James Bond fanatic! I have a deep love of the character and his sense of duty within his world of smoky card rooms, tailored suits, refined tastes and eccentric villains. Like most, my affinity for the gentleman spy began with the film franchise, but the original literary version of Bond would eventually become my favorite iteration of the character. I was absolutely thrilled when Dynamite launched their James Bond series depicting Fleming’s Bond in a modern context, and the opportunity to tell a story within that setting is quite literally a dream come true for me. Working with editor Nate Cosby has been one of the most rewarding collaborations that I’ve had working in comics, and I’m very grateful to the folks at Ian Fleming Publications Ltd. and Dynamite for the opportunity to send 007 on a mission of my very own!”
Ibrahim Moustafa is a comic book artist and writer from Portland, Oregon. His previous works include the Eisner nominated series’ Jaeger and High Crimes from Stela and Dark Horse Comics respectively, Savage Things and Doctor Fate from DC/Vertigo, Mockingbird for Marvel Comics, and covers for Dynamite Entertainment, BOOM! Studios, IDW and Image Comics.
“We’re always so thrilled to work with Ibrahim,” says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. “His talent knows no bounds, and his uncanny ability to master everything he touches made him the clear choice to take on our latest Bond tale. The term Solstice is synonymous with ‘pinnacle,’ ‘zenith,’ or ‘apex,’ which Ibrahim exemplifies in all of his works!”
