It had to happen: Garth Ennis is writing James Bond. 

That’s just one of Dynamite’s announcements from earlier this week as they flood the zone, as is tradition, with new series and ventures. Besides Ennis on Bond, an omnibus edition of Andy Diggle and Aaron Campbell’s Weaver, and an Amanda Conner Sketchbook on Indiegogo round out this group of announcements. 

Ennis, Garth Ennis (The Boys, Preacher) takes over the Bond comics starting in January – and incredibly Dynamite has been publishing the martini-loving spy’s adventure for a whole decade! But they’ve never had hardboiled comics writer Ennis on board before. Art duties are handled by Rapha Lobosco (Benjamin Percy’s Black Box and an issue of Aleš Kot’s The Body) and Dave Johnson provides covers. 

“When I took a look at the Bond of the Fleming novels, as opposed to the larger-than-life figure from the movies, I saw a great deal more potential — a much darker character in a more interesting world,” said Ennis.

This new story titled “Your Cold, Cold Heart” finds Bond dealing with a truly disturbing silent killer. A relic of the Cold War, the deadly compound Stalvoda — roughly meaning “steel water” in Russian — is thought to have achieved the impossible – the holy grail of arms manufacturers: is it possible to kill an enemy without inflicting any visible damage and leaving no trace whatsoever? Right as the weapon is perfected, though, it escapes the lab. MI6 naturally assigns their top operative to the hunt.

In addition to appearances from fan-favorites such as M, Q, Moneypenny, and Felix Leiter, Ennis is also introducing readers to new character Archie Tryon. Now an eccentric, old veteran who enjoys strolls into the sea, the man brought the earlier formula out of the Soviet Union in the first place. Bond will go to him and get more than he bargained for, perhaps seeing a glimpse of his own future, and the first clues to unravelling a conspiracy that traces back deep into the heart of MI6.



Weaver, a SF/crime caper by Andy Diggle and Aaron Campbell, was originally released in 2013 as Uncanny, and garnered praise. Now it’s in one big book! 

Born with an uncanny ability, Weaver can steal other people’s skills – their memories, abilities, and expertise – for a limited time. He’s a man who could change the world, but as a professional gambler, con-man, and thief-for-hire, he prefers to look out for number one. That is, until he finds himself drawn into a dangerous game of international intrigue where the rules keep changing, the players are hidden… and the first thing he stands to lose is his life. Now Weaver is on the run, and his only hope is to turn the tables on his pursuers in a desperate gambit that will bring him face-to-face with the source of his power… and his own traumatic past.

And some art for you:

A brand new Amanda Conner Sketchbook? Why yes! This limited edition collection is available now on Indiegogo. The book will highlight Conner’s Vampirella work as well as her recent cover run on the critically acclaimed Invincible Red Sonja series she also wrote with husband and frequent collaborator Jimmy Palmiotti, with tons of surprises from her personal art files, including layouts, raw pencils, inks, and the final colored artwork. Trading cards, statues…this one has it all. 

But it wouldn’t be Dynamite without a few bonuses: an ultra-limited metal and holofoil cover variants available for just a short period. Just check out the campaign and shop til you drop.
