Boy, AIPT is really giving these Dynamite stories glowing reviews!
It is Fay Dalton's:
Last story before the Graphic Novel hardcover story comes out in August.
"Greg Pak’s take on Bond has everything the modern incarnation should. Twists, turns, heavy on espionage and action, light on the dated womanizing."
Not gonna take a reviewer like that any serious.
I trully hope that the ending of this arc will be good (as the beginning was) and that the continuation in #7 and beyond will finally start focusing more on Bond and less on the other fella. Then this series has real potential.
Yeah me neither. The internet is completely oversaturated with clueless people who think they are Roger Ebert or something.
I can see why your criticisms of reviewers and the Oddjob storyline are becoming an eye opener for me.
I do agree with this reviewers only negative point unfortunately. This dragged the whole issue down for me. I am starting to loose my patience with this series. Pak needs to make a decision about who the friggin lead character here is.
I am not even saying it's bad, i just can't grasp where this is supposed to be going. The characters are not clearly definied in terms of motivation, and repeating the same scenario over and over. Lee is starting to get annyoing as hell.
I have not given up hope yet, and want for the next issues to move things forward more rapidly. Let Bond be at the centre again, and do his thing.
And i hope he
Also, what was the point of keeping Bond in prison for two issues when he was going to be freed just as easily? Something that wouldn't even warrant the containment of two pages. But, I digress.
Still... I'll be reading the next issue. At least we won't be getting toilet paper like The Body and the child-like minded idiocy on steroids that Kot spewed. Anything would be better than that balderdash.
Although, I have to say I will miss Mooney.
Oh for sure. Nothing will be ever as offensively bad as The Body. It's easily the worst piece of Bond entertainment in the history of the franchise, as far as i'm concerned.
Oddjob on the other hand gets a lot of stuff right. The art is great, Bond characterization is good for the most part, good action and globetrotting, so it has the potential to be really great but Pak focuses too much on the wrong things.
Bond should not be used to boost an irrelevant side character as the lead. Should have just called it 'Oddjob' from the start.
I've been calling it Oddjob from the start. Let's see when the hardcover collection is released in August.
That's what I thought.
Looks like James Bond Origins has another winner!
I am worried a bit though that it all goes downhill again from here on based on the ending. I trully hope i am wrong.
Boy these people love Dynamite's work as much as I do! Here's hoping we hear more on LALD and Moonraker soon!
But reading the synopsis for Goldfinger: Gives me a serious headache already, because who doesn't wanna read a James Bond story in which James Bond disappears for a whole issue... *face palm*
If Pak has such a hard-on for asian characters, why didn't he just write a spin off for Tiger Tanaka?! That could have been epic.
