    Has the Origin Hardback had it's release date pushed back or something? I swear it was originally meant to come out in May, then got told it would be coming out in July, and I just looked on Amazon and saw it's set for release in August. Was it always meant to be released in August?

    Nope, it got pushed back a couple times. Might still be pushed back, who knows.

    How does everyone feel about the artwork for Live and Let Die? I like it, but it's completely different to Casino Royale which is a bit jarring. I don't particularly like the way Bond looks either. Still pretty excited!

    Well not sure to like the Bond look either, I think it's come from the haircut, but It's nice cause I have started my re-reading of the novel few days ago and Bond is given a "military haircut" at the beggining of the novel. So It's a very nice touch.

    + the colours are hundred times better than the ones of CR.
    + But the board with nothing inside, just blank, in page 2 shouldn't exist (at least put something inside if you choose to draw a board ; it's the problem of lot of Bond's comics so far).

    Amazing stuff. I can't wait. Looks even better with color.

    If they can do my favorite Fleming novel justice, this might become my favorite Dynamite release.

    That does look good. I may seek out these Fleming adaptations. The other Dynamites don t really interest me anymore after the massive disappointments that were Kill Chain and Hammerhead.

    I didn t like anything about them. Generic stories, and Casalanguida s art was disappointing as well. I knew him from Hellboy, where his artwork was terrific.

    Pity, but can't win them all.
    Maybe the Fleming adaptions would be more to your liking then.

    I should think so. I didn t care much for Bond in those stories, either. Pretty unpleasant person.

    Interesting. Then you certainly wouldn't like the Warren Ellis Bond from Vargr and Eidolon. Much more gritty and ruthless.

    Every writer brought a different characterisation to these stories. Black Box for example is a lot more like Moore (don't bother though, you won't like it)
    Personally I like my Bond most as a dickish antihero. Thats how Fleming wrote him too after all.

    Hammerhead and Kill Chain to me are like a modernized Connery, or Connery/Brosnan hybrid you might say.

    Ok, i can live with that. Hope this one is better (no Oddjob basically) than it's predecessor.
    Now we need some news about what's going on with Origins.

    Hmm i just noticed this is the first writing duo we had in the whole series. A guy and a woman. Interesting. Maybe a more prominent female character?

    "NOMI is Ian Flemings 007" :))

    Lol

    Another positive review for 007. Also, I notice that the stories will be year round now. I wonder if we'll see Blofeld make an appearance. I won't be surprised either way. I wonder if there will be a tie-in story with the release of Bond 25.

    Sadly wasn't really feeling this issue of James Bond 007 or Goldfinger or whatever you wanna call it.
    I think i have to slowly come to grips with the fact that this storyline is just not my thing... It just feels off more times than it feels right, i don't know. There was hardly anything distinctively Bondian about it.

    At least i have Origins. And LALD.

    I agree @00Agent. Bond made some really dumb decisions over the last two issues and the story really doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Not as bad as The Body, but woefully dull.

    Yeah dull is a good word for it. And the whole implants gimmick was just dumb. It's waay to childish and "comic-booky" for my taste.

    And the next issue will be the one where Bond disappears based on the synopsis. Much to look forward to :-w

    Not a guy and a woman. Non-binary and of colour too.

    Oh ok.
    I don't even know wtf that means but as long as they can deliver a decent Bond story i couldn't care less if they are nonbinary or half-robot demigods.

    I just trully hope this is not another Stunt casting for some cheap publicity (Hey, you made it to the Hollywood Reporter, congrats *clap*), and an attempt to deconstruct the character further ala The Body.

    I wouldn't mind reading a Bond comic written by half-robot demigods. They're probably good with titles.

    Haha, that would be great to see.

    It means that they don't identify as he or she and the gender they were born with. They are 'they/them'. I'm by no means an expert though. I don't care, as long as they get Bond.

    I would agree with you on the other points though I was one of the oddities that didn't mind the body all that much. It was poorly executed and strayed way off course, which also made it boring in points. In the hands of someone who understood it better it could have made a better impression and larger impact.

    My biggest criticism of the comics has been the art style in Black Box. I hated it. I like the cover that's on my avatar though.

    LALD can't come soon enough, I enjoyed that CR adaptation as a little kid.

    I don’t necessarily care who writes or illustrates the series, I just care that they respect the character, and understand what makes Bond so beloved, and that goes for the films and novels as well. If they want to do something different, do so, but don’t lose track of what makes the character special.

    The new sollicitations have been announced, and before coming back from my (ell-earned, but bittersweet) vacations, I put them here. Just one title this month :
    James Bond 007 # 12 :

    "Goldfinger" concludes. From GREG PAK (Agents Of Atlas, Star Wars) and ROBERT CAREY (Aliens: Resistance).
    In Shops: Oct 30, 2019
    SRP: $3.99

    STL134246?type=1

    STL134247?type=1

    STL134248?type=1

    STL134249?type=1

    Seems to me that for this series, the writer went the route of the Role-Playing Game of the 80s : featuring well-known villains in adventures that bear little to no ressemblance with what was seen in Fleming's works or the movies that were derived from them. Thos who played the modules put out by Victory Games will understand what I mean.

    Thanks @Gerard !
    The covers pretty much tell us already that they will double down on the Bond & Oddjob buddy cop scenario.
    I might as well skip them if that's the case.

    It’s disapointing to see people’s lack of enthusiasm when it comes to this series. I had high hopes for the Oddjob run, but it seems to me the writers don’t quite understand how to treat Oddjob correctly.
