As Bond undergoes a post-mission medical examination, he relays the story of his previous mission to the examiner. Each cut, bruise, and broken bone connected to a specific event of the mission. A connection is made between two people with different purposes: one to save lives, the other to take them. From writer Ales Kot (Secret Avengers, Zero) comes a James Bond story that explores the secret agent in ways that we have yet to experience!

    Overall. This was a pretty solid first issue, which has enough story to keep me involved for issue 2, which I should imagine will be out next month. There's no doubt about it. Bond is back! Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Jan 17, 2018

    With James Bond - The Body #1, writer Ales Kot and Luca Casalanguida take that depiction of 007 and place it within a surprisingly introspective and rich examination of Bond, utilizing a truly ingenious and compelling framework for the narrative. The result is one of the most unusual and surprisingly effective 007 stories Dynamite's done yet. Read Full Review

    It's a fun read but it's also a fantastic visual trip as Luca Casalanguida continues to reinforce why I look forward to everything Bond related he does as it sets a high bar for other artists. Definitely recommended. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 17, 2018

    I love the concept and want to see what comes next. There's a simplicity about it that's utterly brilliant and Kot and Casalanguida combine for a story that has you wondering how this hasn't happened earlier. A solid story that can be picked up as a one-shot and I think something greater, it's completely entertaining and a definite buy. Read Full Review
