Himeros is the Greek God of sexual desire and one of the Erotes, the winged gods of love. When Aphrodite was born from the sea-foams she was greeted by the twin loves Eros and Himeros.

But when sexual desire goes too far, it takes the legendary super-spy James Bond to bring justice to the most vulnerable among us as he investigates the suspicious death of an accused sex trafficker - one whose ties run deep... and deadly.

Writer Rodney Barnes make his Dynamite 007 debut in this special series, featuring art by returning Bond superstar artist Antonio Fuso and two amazing covers: Francesco Francavilla and Jackson "Butch" Guice! more

    OverallRodney Barnes makes a strong debut with a story that looks like it could unfold in a similar style to your average Daniel Craig style James Bond story. Having Bond investigates the murder of a sex trafficker and arms dealer works. But the addition of Sarah Richmond who also has combat training, but happens to know where all the skeletons are makes for some intriguing possabilities. Has to be said though. Fuso's drawing of the assassin Kino kind of resembles a younger Stephen King. Similar hairstyle and jawline. Read Full Review

    I have been a fan of Dynamite's James Bond books for a while now. It's good to see that in the need to make the most of the current Bond love generated by the movie, that Dynamite haven't scrimped on the quality. Read Full Review

    James Bond: Himeros #1 rides the nostalgia wave from the recent conclusion of Daniel Craig's turn as 007. Fortunately, Rodney Barnes has a very good grasp on James Bond and makes him spark in the little bit of screen time he has. Antonio Fuso's art is perfect for this book. Dynamite definitely has a book to be excited about with James Bond: Himeros. Read Full Review

    James Bond: Himeros #1 lays out the entire mission setup and background on all the major players in a straightforward albeit slightly boring way, and while things do pick up considerably once Bond is in the picture, the art style at times gets in the way and keeps the issue from achieving its full potential.

    Bond doesn't see much action in James Bond: Himeros #1 until he tracks down the capable Sarah Richmond at the end of the issue, arriving with roguish style. What we get here is mostly set-up, little more than an opening chapter to a larger story. Sarah is more capable than many Bond Girls, but with a super-assassin on the loose she'll no doubt need 007's help to stay alive. Read Full Review
