Captured by the Russians, Lieutenant Bond meets the beautiful Oksana, who may be his ticket to safety, or lead to his doom. But it's quite difficult to know ally from foe, when you've been drugged. The epic World War 2 tale continues from JEFF PARKER (Aquaman, Fantastic Four) and superstar artist IBRAHIM MOUSTAFA (Mother Panic, The Flash)!

    I loved the couple of pages where Bond is going over his personal checklist of what he should do and what he should be prepared for. We get the sense that he is strategizing and trying to brace himself for all possible outcomes. Read Full Review

    This issue juggles the "origin" aspects and Bond's present mission better than any issue yet. "Russian Ruse" is shaping up to be the strongest arc of this series, yet! Read Full Review

    The James Bond: Origin series is definitely delighting in a way that I had hoped it would. I've long hoped for some sort of film experience looking at this period in his life or a premium TV series format to really get into it as a period piece. Jeff Parker is capturing all that I wanted from it and delivering some engaging work on the young man that will become the most famous of spies. This issue moves us in some great ways between a couple of interesting locations and Ibrahim Moustafa puts it to the page in a great way. I love the look of the residence we see in the back half but I also love the tightness of the ship's interiors in the first half with how that ramps up the tension. Very good stuff all around and has me once again wanting more very quickly. Read Full Review
