    Great cover, do we know the artist? It certainly is not Fay Dalton.

    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.

    That's why reviews don't mean a rat's back end of the rear to me. When someone said Hammerhead is a perfect Craig type story to begin with, I tuned out. That's as inaccurate as one can get. I hardly trust anyone who "reviews" anything. ;)

    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.

    It's taking its inspirations from the time-span of short internet miniseries episodes.

    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
    get's to kill Lee, but i am pretty sure Pak will find some BS excuse to keep him.

    Agreed. John Lee/Oddjob has gotten quite annoying, I just don't like him at all. I really don't know what Pak is planning or what is his aim in the story because there hardly is any point to it or a punchline even. Sure, I love the artwork provided by Stephen Mooney immensely and I hope he stays on board for as long as possible, but the story isn't going anywhere at all. And even if they resurrected Goldfinger just for the hell of it, I don't see any point in his stay. I feel like they're making up as they're going with each issue.

    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.

    Spectacular covers!

    Although, I have to say I will miss Mooney.

    Covers look great, i think the last 3 issues of Origin that Moustafa is writing (and drawing) will be spectacular.

    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.

    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 bet they call it something confusing like Vol. 3, Vol. 2 or something. They did something similar with the VARGR/Eidolon run, followed by Black Box which didn’t make sense at all.

    Sorry this might have been mentioned before, but what timeline does Oddjob take place in?

    About the use of Goldfinger in the Pak run
    anyone thinking that it will turn out to be his twin Brother as in the discarded Diamonds Are Forever movie idea?

    It's good. Origins keeps the quality up, and i think the next three issues, written by Moustafa, will be a highlight.

    I really loved this month’s Origin. The series is going from strength to strength.

    Issue #1 of - well, let's just call it Goldfinger - was a HUGE improvement over the last couple issues for me. Bond is Bond and he's front and centre, the dialogue is witty and even the introduction of GF wasn't half bad. Oh and the new artist is also very good.

    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.

    Thanks! Great covers, especially the Origin ones. So much flair.

    But reading the synopsis for Goldfinger:
    And Bond... disappears
    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.
