From the tweet @ggl007 posted it's quite clear Ayala and Lore are done with Dynamite for now (I assume their part of Reflections of Death is done).
I can't recall from the top of my head, but I think there hasn't really been a direct continuation by a different author. What I mean by that is, the comics have been very loosely connected story-wise and villains and secondary characters (apart from the basics: M, Moneypenny, Boothroyd, Tanner, Leiter) don't really get reused by other writers. Even SPECTRE and SMERSH are used only by one writer each if I recall correctly.
So let's see how (if) they continue the hooks set-up in this series.
There were some ideas picked up in the Leiter comic relating to prosthetics that were present in the Ellis runs, but nothing substantial.
You're right. The Kurjak prosthetics seem to be "canon" for the entire series, although in most instances Leiter seems to be the only person wearing them. Which is slightly weird. But Warren Ellis is gonna do Warren Ellis-things...
July 29, Mt. Laurel, NJ:
"Dynamite Entertainment is a partner in the fight for equality and inclusion. Our company was founded on these core values more than 15 years ago and they are essential to the creative process – the work of visionary artists and entrepreneurs – that we are passionate about. Intolerance has no place in our company or our industry. The impulse behind this brief association was that of helping a friend of many decades and his family, and not how that assistance could potentially affect our valued colleagues, partners, and friends. That association is behind us and this time has strengthened our resolve to continue working with the most diverse talent in creating the best comics possible."
What's this mean for James Bond? Hopefully, more adventures on the way! There's still 5 years on the license from IFP.
I would guess they keep the license (as I don't see any legal reason to cancel it, but I most definitely am no lawyer) but might still have problems attracting and retaining talent. I could see people not being satisfied by this statement. From what they posted on Twitter before this statement I would guess Ayala & Lore and possibly Ibrahim Moustafa are done with Dynamite for now. But we will see.
What these Dynamite fellas did or supported was, perhaps, unfortunate, but was it a crime? In poor taste? Did it instigate violence? In the end, they supported a reaction to some of the oppressive tendencies that are crippling the entertainment business nowadays. It's Wertham all over again, except the other extreme. Creators who walk away from this, who feel personally offended, should understand one thing: the more they play this game, the more they themselves will feel the unpleasant side-effects. Because the last thing a creator of anything wants is for someone else telling him how to create. Maybe Dynamite could've picked a better way to handle things, maybe I even disagree with what they did. But when reading a Dynamite published comic, it wouldn't affect me in the slightest. If I let such things get to me, I'd hardly have any film left to enjoy.
apprently it's has been advanced for next week!
Great, thanks for the preview.
Thanks for the reply. So is this one cohesive story? I was under the impression that each of the "installments" was only loose connected, but maybe I misunderstood.
Sounds good. Looking forward to reading it myself!
