James Bond is back in a brand-new comic book series from writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Marco Finnegan. Published by Dynamite, 007 debuts this August.
The most famous spy in fiction returns to heat up the summer comics season with a thrilling tale of double agents, assassins, old flames, and heaps of intrigue. James Bond finds himself outplayed with a metaphorical bad hand on a Russian excursion, forced to eliminate an asset he was meant to extract. A shootout with his enemy counterparts leaves Bond with more questions than answers… questions about their American accents, their bleeding-edge technology, and most importantly, how they seem to know so much about him.
Abandoned by his superiors, facing suspension at MI6, and questioning his waning sense of duty, 007 gets an urgent message from former 00 agent Gwendolyn Gann, a mentor and old flame from his earliest days. Gann’s gotten back in the spy game, and needs Bond’s help… but will Bond make it on time? And what are her ties to the mysteruous new player known only as Myrmidon?
The new series, titled 007, takes readers on a rollercoaster ride through the high stakes world of intelligence and espionage, with a healthy dash of breakneck action. Johnson brings back fan-favorite characters while also introducing a whole new cast, keeping readers guessing about their motives and loyalties. Gwen Gann is a new “Bond girl,” with a storied past, a quick wit, and skills to rival Bond’s own. Of course there’s a new big bad as well, but that would be a bit of a spoiler…
Johnson and Finnegan are joined by a team of top tier agents… cover artists to depict the super spy. Tommy Lee Edwards, Marc Aspinall, Soo Lee, and returning 007 artist Marc Laming all contribute captivating takes on Bond that leap off the covers like all the classic posters.
