"Bond. James Bond."
How exactly does one become the golden boy of MI6? Well, this Fall those questions will be answered in the pages of James Bond Origin.
Hailing from Dynamite Entertainment, the new book features an all-star creative team consisting of Batman '66 writer Jeff Parker and Green Hornet artist Bob Q. Kicking off in March 1941, the new title follows a teenage Bond as a visit to a family friend is interrupted by one of the most devastating German attacks on the U.K. during World War II.
"It's a weighty challenge to reverse-engineer this icon into a young man on a life’s journey of danger, but [editor] Nate Cosby paired me up with Bob Q, who not only brings the gravitas of war in 1941 Europe but nails the promising hero in his youth," Jeff Parker said in a statement.
"James doesn’t have the vast experience of a double-O agent yet, but he's tenacious and a lightning-quick study. Bob and I work to show the full force of Bond’s spirit."
This is the latest James Bond title to be announced by Dynamite Entertainment. Since inking a deal with the estate of Bond creator Ian Fleming back in 2014, they've released such standout titles as James Bond: The Body, which concludes with its final issue today, and a series of titles spotlighting supporting characters like Moneypenny and Felix Leiter.
James Bond Origin #1 will be released digitally and in comic book stores in September.
And we'll certainly be speaking with the creative team behind this exciting new project.
