    James Bond: Hammerhead captures the espionage angle to a T, which makes for a riveting spy drama. The general pace is a tad slow, but not enough to dampen the solid storytelling in play. Read Full Review

    James Bond - Hammerhead #4 continues to cement my opinion that this is the best 007 book on the stands right now, with the creative team succeeding in escalating the already high stakes of the story while simultaneously adding twists and turns that serve the world's greatest secret agent as well as he deserves.

    The James Bond: Hammerhead series is ticking all the right boxes off for me, though I wish it was ending at five issues instead of six as I fear a bit of padding ahead. The writing is spot on as I like the characters for what we know of them, the Bond interpretation works well, and the artwork is distinctive and strong without being so unique that it's off-putting. The end result is another installment that reads very smoothly, builds upon what came before, and has me excited to see what's next as Bond makes his confrontation with Kraken. Definitely recommended for fans of the Bond franchise that may have struggled with the ongoing series. Read Full Review

    I picked this issue up, then put it down, and left it for a week, thinking I needed to read the fist three to catch up. But then I tried again and it was all clear, and this issue was absolutely thrilling, with a great ending. Good job on the creative team to deliver an issue absolutely in the spirit of Bond, and make it so everything I needed to know was right here in this issue, without any heavy handed exposition. Hey, it's not anyone's fault I read so many books and sometimes forget the plot directions. But great books like this make it so everything is clear through the writing and action.
