    #3 is out.

    I am starting to come around on this. I was really unimpressed by #1, I got a bit warmer with #2 and I may actually outright like #3.
    Some of the issues the previous issues had remain. I am still not totally convinced by the action set-pieces. Titania is drawn a bit weird (as was pointed out by @BeatlesSansEarmuffs). And I am still not 100% on the story. But this had some fun moments, a couple of interesting choices that I didn't see coming and they keep twisting the screw of the various double and triple-crosses. Nothing spectacular, but well executed, I would say.
    I am still irritated, that they will only do 5 issues as the arc from here on out seems very predetermined when it's only 2 left. If there were three, I would feel less certain about what is still to come

    Now that I've had a chance to read AOS #3 -- Well done overall. I can see this story being concluded in 2 more issues... the question now becomes: why did Dynamite decide to make this a 5-issue story rather than 6 issues as has been their habit until now? It's always about the money, of course, and for the comics industry these days that means it's a question of the TPB compilation. Has Dynamite decided that a slightly thinner and less expensive GN might sell better? Or are they planning on selling the AOS GN at the same price for a 5-issue compilation as they have been charging for the 6-issue collections up 'til now? Am I being cynical? Perhaps. But in a world where James Bond is suddenly working for Blofeld, I'd suggest that there's little difference between cynicism and a realistic outlook.

    Solstice was an impressive short story, that was a delightful read. I have that one and the three parts of VARGR.

    EDIT: Solstice was very Bondian.

    every time I see this I remember the Telltale rumor ah the good old days.

    It's scheduled for release Wednesday. I doubt any of us have had the opportunity to read it just yet...

    I'm waiting for the story arc to have been completed before I start reading. I'm collecting the single issues, though, because I prefer those over TP's.

    Whoops, I guess I had the release date incorrect when I initially asked this question.

    It is out now, though, in case anyone has a chance to read it!
  • Sorry it's taken me an extra week to pick up & read JB:AOS #4. I'm surprised no one else has managed to report yet either -- I hope this doesn't bode poorly for sales of the monthly Bond title...

    This is a fairly action-packed episode -- car chase, helicopters attack, gun fights etc. A little bit of glamorous locale, some examination of Blofeld's business methods, a tracking device and some repartee between Bond and Blofeld. There were absolutely NO surprises plot-wise but it was a fairly satisfactory issue nonetheless. At this point I can believe the storyline will be wrapped up in one more issue. If you've been enjoying the story so far I expect you won't be disappointed with this issue... and if you haven't been enjoying it, well, it'll be over soon. Maybe you're just looking forward to Moonraker.

    Foreshadowing a Moonraker graphic novel from Dynamite? I hope so, as they haven’t announced anything after Agent of Spectre yet. Van Jensen isn’t coming back, at least that’s what he said after Live And Let Die was released. Their rights stay until 2025.

    I'm expecting at least MR in the 4 years remaining in the contract, and I'd hope to see DAF as well. We don't really want to have FRWL at the tail end of the contract, I suspect ... because that leaves us with the possibility of Bond dying as the contract runs out, and the powers that be deciding against renewing it. In that eventuality, the Dynamite Comics run of 007 would close in a fashion that nobody really wants to see.... * so let's not even go there.

    Well I don't know how many Fleming book Dynamite gonna adapt. But a the moment there is also a fan project of translating the adaptations by Zig Zag :

    https://www.ajb007.co.uk/discussion/53853/call-to-the-community-help-to-enlarge-the-access-of-untranslated-bond-comics-adventures

    So far almost everything was done, the only one that are not translated or currently in the process of being translate are :

    - Moonraker ("Sabotage")
    - DAF
    - Thunderball (2 parts)
    - OHMSS (2 parts)
    - TSWLM
    - YOLT

    So if you like me you don't understand spanish but still want to read adaptation of the novel in comics one day, you can participate to it ;)

    James Bond defeated by PAW Patrol? Oh, the shame! :)
  • I see nothing in this article that has any bearing at all on Dynamite's commitment to the Bond series. Does anybody out there remember Marvel's STAR COMICS line? Mainstream comics publishers have been trying (mostly fruitlessly) to put comics back into the hands of kids for decades. STAR didn't mean that Marvel had any plans to stop publishing Spider-Man, Dynamite publishes a large number of comics besides the Bond titles. Paw Patrol poses no more of a threat to Bond than does Vampirella or Red Sonja.

    There are more of them though. Strength in numbers. They're a force to be reckoned with.

  • I must admit that they're CUTER than Daniel Craig... but not cuter than Pierce Brosnan.

    No, he's the original Pretty Boy along with a young Roger Moore!
  • Isn't that Young Roger running alongside the Paw Patrol in the illustration above?

    It is ever it’s an exciting time to be a Bond fan. We’re thrilled that 007 will be revisiting the world of comics, for Convert PDF to Excel online in documents as Fleming’s novels have a long and successful history in this medium, ever since they began to be published as newspaper comic strips

    Is Dynamite Comics adapting the other comics this way?

    Sounds very promising! Starting to remind me of the original series we used to get from Dynamite so I’m quite excited. The woman on the cover reminds me of Lupe Lamora. My only concern is Fuso doing the art, as I haven’t really liked the art he’s done for Bond, and I think it was a hindrance on my enjoyment of Service.

    @ClarkDevlin

    I was looking back at this thread and I noticed something. Do you still have contact with people who work with Dynamite Comics? I know this was a couple of years ago, but you haven’t been updating hidden gems from them. Not to get you in trouble, just curious!
  • QBranchQBranch Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.
