    It's just strong from the first page and simply gets even more engaging as it progresses and we get the cast, the action sequences, and the drama. Definitely a series I can't wait to see more of this fall. Read Full Review

    For a while, I have been saying how Dynamite have given Bond a mature world in which to exist. It is great to see that this ideal continues in a book that I may not have asked for, but now, thanks to its near perfect execution, I am now eagerly looking forward too. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Sep 3, 2018

    James Bond origin #1 has some pacing flaws, but mostly hits the mark when it comes to its characters. Jeff Parker has created a young, sloppy Bond, but still makes the character recognizable. It feels like this series will only get better, and I look forward to seeing more. Read Full Review

    Let's be honest James Bond: Origin #1 pays respect to the icon himself while making a story that seems rather right for the characters involved. We have a really good start that sets a more than sturdy tone for what should be a rather solid mini-series. Read Full Review

    Die-hard fans of James Bond or classic spy stories will surely enjoy the arenas this story is beginning to explore, but the casual fan will surely be asking why this series exists in the first place. Read Full Review
