Van Jensen and Dennis Calero take on James Bond’s Casino Royale
Award-winning writer Van Jansen and artist Dennis Calero have been selected as the creative team to bring the very first James Bond novel, Casino Royale, to the pages of comics for the first time in the series’ history. Set for release in October, the 160-page graphic novel will transport 007 fans back to the 1950’s with its stylish artwork and classic story!
Ian Fleming’s literary debut of British Secret Service agent 007 is stylishly adapted to the sequential art medium by Van Jensen and Dennis Calero in the official James Bond: Casino Royale graphic novel. Sent to a French casino in Royale-les-Eaux, Bond aims to eliminate the threat of the deadly Le Chiffre by bankrupting the ruthless SMERSH operative at the baccarat table. However, when the luck of the draw favors his enemy, 007 becomes the target of assassins and torturers in a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse.
