Dynamite Announces James Bond: Felix Leiter Courtesy of James Robinson and Aaron Campbell

Writer James Robinson steps into the world of James Bond in an all-new miniseries, authorized by Ian Fleming Publications Ltd, centering around the character’s CIA ally and friend Felix Leiter. Robinson will be teaming with artist Aaron Campbell for Felix Leiter’s first-ever comic book series!

In the new series, Felix Leiter — now operating as an independent investigator — finds himself in Japan, tracking down a beautiful Russian spy from his past. But when the mission takes a turn for the worse, he will discover that there are more deadly schemes taking shape in Tokyo… and beyond!

Felix Leiter first appeared alongside James Bond in Ian Fleming’s very first novel, Casino Royale, published in 1953. He would later make appearances in Live and Let Die, Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger, Thunderball, and The Man with the Golden Gun, making him one of Bond’s most frequent allies throughout the books. Originally a CIA operative, Leiter has begun to work for Pinkertons as a private detective when Bond encounters him in Diamonds Are Forever, although he is hired by the Agency for specific missions in the later books. In Live and Let Die, Felix is the victim of a shark attack in which he loses part of his right arm and left leg, sporting prosthetic limbs during his subsequent appearances. In this new miniseries, we meet Leiter post-injuries, and working independently from the CIA at his own detective agency.

James Bond: Felix Leiter #1 is slated for release in January.

James Bond Goes Dynamite

Dynamite Entertainment has announced their partnership with Ian Fleming Publications Ltd., the company that owns and administers the literary copyright of Ian Fleming‘s published works, including his fourteen James Bond books.

Under their agreement, negotiated by Jonny Geller of Curtis Brown, Dynamite has been granted worldwide rights to publish comic books, digital comics, and graphic novels starring 007, Fleming’s iconic secret agent will re-live the exploits that have thrilled and captivated fans for over half a century in fresh visual adaptations of the classic Bond stories.

Moreover, Dynamite plans to create a series of brand new adventures unveiling the defining – and largely undocumented – early years of Bond’s career. These new stories will draw inspiration from the Fleming canon to explore Bond’s ‘origins’: his raw early years before he gambled with his life in the first novel, Casino Royale (1953). Some other familiar faces from the expansive 007 mythos will also make appearances in this series – criminal masterminds, hired henchmen, glamorous Bond Girls, and secret service allies – alongside all-new characters.

Ian Fleming’s World War II service as assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence in London granted him a wealth of experience in the world of espionage, on which he drew when writing his novels.  Fleming published fourteen James Bond titles and lived to witness their enormous success in print and on film.  His cultural legacy has thrived for over fifty years, as millions of readers worldwide continue to discover and enjoy his work.

Dynamite plans to launch its first James Bond comic books in 2015.
