AGENT OF SPECTRE Part 1! There's a civil war brewing within SPECTRE. An upstart American member of the international criminal organization is attempting a coup, threatening to depose Ernst Stavro Blofeld. She's on guard against Blofeld's men, so to take her out, Blofeld recruits a wild card - James Bond! With Blofeld threatening the life of Bond's friend Felix Leiter as leverage, Bond agrees...but he has a plan to use this internal strife to bring SPECTRE down once and for all. Will he succeed, or is this a dark path from which even 007 can't return?

    I for one am pleased that Bond, James Bond is back on the rack. With a clever setup, Gage may have made it hard for himself to right the ship. It will certainly be an interesting ride. All we need now are some fancy gadgets, a cool car and a Bond girl to make things perfectly 007! Read Full Review

    In this story. Bond is middle age and that gets referenced as being somewhat of a negative thing given the life expectancy of 00 agents. Read Full Review

    I continue to enjoy the James Bond books that Dynamite puts out and we've got a strong creative on this series. That it's digging into the Spectre material in a creative way definitely has me excited to see where they go with it. This issue sets the groundwork very well with the right kind of downtime and exposition to give it the weight it needs to move forward. Bond is always engaging and I'm digging what Gage is putting to the page with the character that Casalanguida brings to life. I'm excited to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    'James Bond: Agent of Spectre' #1 is the perfect appetizer for Bond fans as they wait for the next film. They can feast on this beautifully written and illustrated new series that's lean and mean. It sets the table for some intriguing spy action to come.  Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 15, 2021

    As neither the threats nor the bribery would make Bond ally himself with his enemy, the most obvious reason for Bond's acceptance of the assignment would be to get more information on SPECTRE, kill a high value target within their organization, and perhaps find what he needs to take down Blofeld as well. Whether or not any of this is possible, we'll have to wait and see. Read Full Review
