This summer Dynamite Entertainment is re-uniting the team of writer Andy Diggle (Detective Comics, Green Arrow, James Bond: Hammerhead) and artist Luca Casalanguida (James Bond: Hammerhead) to bring spy thriller genre fans the next chapter in its series of James Bond international espionage stories, James Bond: Kill Chain.

Dynamite describes the new story line:
When a counterespionage operation in Rotterdam goes catastrophically wrong, James Bond finds himself in the crosshairs of a plot to smash NATO.  Someone is assassinating allied agents, and 007 is the next target in the kill chain.  Having kept the peace for decades, the old alliance is collapsing, pitting MI6 against its former ally – the CIA!

Issue #1 of James Bond: Kill Chain will feature a selection of cover variants, with covers drawn by Greg Smallwood (Archie, Moon Knight), interior artist Casalanguida, and Juan Doe (Guardians of the Galaxy), among other variant options.

Dynamite’s first series under the James Bond license since 2014 was written by Transmetropolitan writer Warren Ellis, with subsequent Bond story lines including Diggle and Casalanguida’s Hammerhead, James Robinson and Aaron Campbell’s Felix Leiter, Benjamin Percy and Rapha Lobosco’s Black Box, and Kieron Gillen and Antonio Fuso’s Service.

 James Bond: Kill Chain will begin in July, and feature six issues that will run through the end of 2017.  Pre-order it this month from your local comic book shop.
