Dynamite has more Bond for fans of the super spy. This time, critically acclaimed and bestselling author Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Superman, Aliens, The Last God) takes on the character in a new comic series just in time for his 70th anniversary.
007: For King and Country kicks off 70 years of 007 with an all-new James Bond adventure like no other.
Artist Giorgio Spalletta (Red Sonja) joins Johnson for another chapter in a tenure that ComicBook.com has said, “perfectly captures Bond’s voice.” The series starts in April, in line with the 1953 original publication of Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale.
Read the details below:
Accused of murder on British soil, James Bond is marked a traitor by his own government. M has sent the entire legion of 00 agents after 007 to stamp out what seems to be the ultimate betrayal. This all leaves Bond on the run and underground. Though there is one more key agent not on his tail, as 003 – Gwendolyn Gann is currently his sole ally. She is another traitor, though presumed dead. Of course, the pair are secretly deep into a clandestine mission that could have globe-shattering ramifications!
Can James and Gwen survive to die another day? Or will their own erstwhile allies catch up to them before they can unravel a massive conspiracy? Fans can find out in this hotly anticipated entry into the 007 mythos from one of the biggest names in comics, as Dynamite, Ian Fleming Publications, and company mark a major milestone!
Dynamite is also making available to retailers and fans the wide range of James Bond graphic novels produced to date. The diverse library from creators such as Benjamin Percy, Warren Ellis, Andy Diggle, Greg Pak, Jeff Parker, James Robinson, Vita Ayala, and more will be available to order. Fans can explore acclaimed runs of original tales, uncovered flashbacks to a young Bond, and adaptations of the first two iconic novels, and complete their collections.
As for covers, Joseph Michael Linsner makes his Bond franchise debut. Rebeca Puebla, Chuma Hill, and Lesley “Leirix” Li offer their take on the 007 universe.
