EIDOLON, Part Three: Bond is sent to breach a secret base in the depths of England, alone, without back-up, and fully deniable: a place from Cold War history, with only one way in and one way out, while the forces of security services all over the world are seemingly ranged against MI6, and all Bond has is his gun and a few pieces of a bloody, dark puzzle...

    James Bond works the third part of this storyline in a pretty good way here as we get some additional context to what's going on and some forward progress into a little more in the realm of discovery. Ellis feels like he's a bit more grounded with this storyline and I like that it's continuing with threads that kicked off in the first arc in the background. I'm still not sure just where the story is going and that's part of the appeal and frustration of a Bond story sometimes in that it takes twists and turns as it teases. This book has some great work from Masters once again as we see just how well he brings action like this to life, not an easy thing for a lot of artists. Definitely a solid installment that has me eager to see what's to come and how the arc reads as a whole. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Sep 15, 2016

    The mission into Box Tunnel allows artist Jason Masters a chance to do what he does best, with Bond's actions flowing smoothly like progressive frames in a film as he moves onward. The ensuing firefight is a joy to behold, in particular Bond's turn-drop-and-fire motion in a single panel. Masters has proven before that his understanding of fluid body motions in fight scenes is impressive, and here the same level of detail is in play regarding gunfights. It's an area which more creators should pay attention to, and this stands as a great lesson. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 30, 2016

    Save for an awkward opening first four pages, this is another good issue that continues the story and raises the stakes for MI6. If for nothing else, read this comic to see Bond kick ass and Masters compose a fantastic action sequence. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Patrick Larose Aug 31, 2016

    There have yet to be any standout characters that represent an answer to this reality and despite flirting with it; this series has yet to transform James Bond into that character. Instead, this is a fusion where James Bond can exist in the present while still married to his Cold War roots, letting him be a savage instrument in a more sophisticated era. Read Full Review
