    With the reveal of the big bad. I can't wait to see how this all pans out in next month's issue because this story is really starting to heat up. Bond better hope that there are not any swamps nearby if he is going by past experiences. Read Full Review

    I'll say it now: Ayala and Lore have managed to craft one of the best Bond comics in a long time. It's as character-defining and meditative as Ales Kot's run while still allowing for a huge new breath of life with the character of Brandi Keyes. Genuinely a fun time, and a much-needed hero with all that is happening. Read Full Review

    If you are a Bond fan and you've slept on this series so far, this is me telling you to buy the back issues, write an apology letter, and get it on your pull. Read Full Review

    Brandy's showdown is choreographed and depicted well in a darkened art room where she's able to make use of her wits and surroundings to culminate in a satisfying showdown even if the banter was still a bit cheesy at times. Read Full Review

    Though this series frustrates me there are strong moments to be had in this installment. The story itself just hasn't clicked at all and I feel like we're going in circles with it. But when you break it into the individual scenes there's a lot to like. Brandy toying with Bond over the way he views art is amusing, even if I prefer the more suave version of Bond that's worldly. His fight with the bodyguard is some solid brawler work and I really enjoyed what we got out of Brandy and Nadya going up against each other. I just wish it was part of a better and more compelling storyline than what we have here. Read Full Review
