"The name's Bond! James Bond!"
Get ready fire up the Aston Martin and grab a Martini, Dynamite Entertainment is relaunching the fan-favorite James Bond 007 series this November with Greg Pak and Marc Lambing.
Pak expressed his excitement over the new series while speaking with The New York Times.
"I’m thrilled to have the chance to play with these classic characters, giving them the biggest surprises, the funnest toys, and the wildest plot twists we can come up with — and maybe even a surprisingly moving emotional endgame. And I’m hugely excited about this creative team, with Marc Laming giving us that sleek action and character work he does so well! Can’t wait ’til we can show you what we’re cooking up!"
Laming, whose body of work includes Wonder Woman and the excellent Star Wars: Doctor Aphra title from Marvel Comics, also expressed enthusiasm for being able "to something grounded, with real bodies moving in realistic ways."
The first six issues will bring James Bond up against a Korean mystery man in the vein of Oddjob, the bowler hat-wielding henchman from Goldfinger. The connection between the two villains is intentional and their connection will be revealed as the six-part story unfolds.
Exploring the character of Oddjob was the first idea that came to Mr. Pak’s mind when the opportunity to write this Bond series came along. He has devised a cat-and-mouse superspy caper that will pit Bond against the new character. The comic will also introduce an ally for Bond in the shape of the female Agent K.
James Bond 007 will be released in November 2018, and include four different covers from Dave Johnson, John Cassaday, Rafael Albuquerque, and Marc Laming respectively.
