An all-new nail-biting Bond mission from superstar Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Action Comics) and Giorgio Spalletta (Red Sonja). Accused of murder on British soil, James Bond has been branded a traitor by his own government. As M sends the entire 00 division after 007, Bond must go underground with only one ally: Gwendolyn Gann, 003 - another traitor, presumed dead, secretly on a clandestine mission with global implications.

    This book is a great example of who the creative process should work, with writer, artist, colorists and letterer producing their best work for a character that Dynamite have breathed new life into over the last few years. Read Full Review

    007: FOR KING AND COUNTRY #1 starts a new arc as a continuation of the previous arc where James Bond was all but beaten by the nefarious Myrmidon organization. Phillip Kennedy Johnson's writing is tighter and clearer, and a switch-up in the art team results in a visually-improved comic. Read Full Review

    007: For King and Country #1 is an entertaining opening that puts Bond in an interesting position. It's one we've seen before to some extent but with how things are presented, it's never quite felt to this level. Add in how the issue wraps up, and this is a new series where it feels like everything is on the table and no one can be trusted. It's Bond on his own versus the world. Read Full Review

    It's been fun to see James Bond have to resort to seclusion, and not rely on his super spy network and fancy gadgets. Read Full Review
