The first arc concludes, from VITA AYALA (Morbius), DANNY LORE (Queen of Bad Dreams) and ERIC GAPSTUR (The Flash). Bond is in over his head. What started as a "punishment" assignment has expanded into a world of international crime that Bond can't wrap his mind around. Will 007 accept that the mission is too big for one spy, and seek assistance...or will pride be his downfall?

    OverallThis was a fairly good conclusion to the current story arc, but also an origin story of sorts for the partnership of James Bond and Brandy Keys, which is going to continue into the next story arc. As a long term Bond fan. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about his being partnered up for the long term, but I do like the partnership that has formed here in that Brandy seems very much like James Bond in that she is a rule-breaker, but unlike Bond, she is across all the details. Whereas Bond is always off the cuff in that he improvises a lot more than he plans. All I ask of the writers is this, please don't have Bond and Brandy fall in love'. It never ends well when Bond falls in love. Read Full Review

    This book manages to hit its stride for a general audience and those who have been wondering where this book was going. While many of its detractors were aghast at giving Bond a slower pace initially, the team behind Bond managed to do wonders for comic book storytelling. I am not only hooked, but maniacally laughing at how great this series is once the payoff has started to hit. This is genuinely a fun and cool book -- just understand what I mean when I say Bond is a danger. Read Full Review

    This new James Bond comic maintains its place as one of my favorite books from month to month. If you havent grabbed this yet, you are denying yourself an excellent piece of the James Bond content web. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Feb 14, 2020

    After starting a bit shaky like a Bond martini, this issue gels together beautifully. The new characters are carrying the show but that’s not a bad thing because they’re really fun to watch. Bond still lacks a voice, but, in this issue, he showed he still packs a punch in a great fight scene. Since the stolen painting has been found, putting a close to the initial mission, the comic’s future is a blank canvas. Read Full Review

    An okay issue. Everybody has an off-day and that includes comic creative teams. Read Full Review

    James Bond continues to feel like a true-to-form Bond story, though that means you have to accept a certain degree of cliches to make things work. Read Full Review

    The next issue brings on Erica D'urso for the artwork so I'm curious to see what they bring to the table and how it'll alter the view of the series. Ayala and Lore are starting up their next storyline with it as well but this opening three-part storyline didn't do much for me. It's just kind of there, you know? Nothing more than that. It has some good artwork and some good quips and moments along the way but it's a far from memorable storyline that drives you to wanting more of it. Read Full Review
