In the so-called "Suicide Forest" of Japan, near the base of Mt. Fuji, James Bond finds himself hunted by No Name, the nightmarish assassin. After narrowly escaping, 007 and Selah Sax find themselves on board a bullet train bound for the headquarters of Saga Genji -- in a race against Felix Leiter and the Americans for the "black box" of information that could compromise their nations.

    The Black Box arc continues to be interesting but this issue is a bit overstuffed with what it wants to do and the movement between locales doesn't flow as well as it should when it comes to Bond and Selah. The forest material feels underserved and a bit disconnected from the previous issue while the train material is pretty good on its own, yet that feels weaker with a Felix that doesn't jive too well with what we'd just read elsewhere. I like what Genji is orchestrating overall but he's been a somewhat secondary character at best in this storyline and that has kept him from being an engaging opponent – in addition to those awful VR glasses that just make me want to smack him.
