It’s one of our favorite tropes, and now it means the pairing of the most unlikely characters. James Bond teaming up with Ernst Stavro Blofeld against a common foe? Where do we sign up?
At your local comic shop, coming in March 2021.
James Bond: Agent of SPECTRE is Dynamite Comics’ next James Bond serialized monthly comic book story, sure to resurrect the double-agent element of some of the best Bond stories. TV screenwriter Christos Gage (Daredevil, Hawaii Five-O) will partner with the artist known for defining the retro style of the 21st century Bond comics, Luca Casalanguida, who we’ve seen on so many 007 titles, including Hammerhead, Kill Chain, and The Body, with colors by Heather Moore.
We’ve seen several appearances of Blofeld on the big screen, and from some major dramatic actors. So which Blofeld style do you think Casalanguida will go for?
Dynamite says Casalanguida will be drawing a more novel-inspired Blofeld–the original massive man and a true equal to Bond, both physically and mentally. Can Bond ever really trust Blofeld? Of course not, but it will be fun to see how Gage and his team cause them to collide.
Steve Epting and Sean Phillips will be creating covers for the series.
In the story Bond’s travels take him from the United States capital to Blofeld’s ancestral estate in Greece. Look for familiar faces including M and Moneypenny, as well as all the trademark Bond accessories.
Add James Bond: Agent of SPECTRE to your pull list now at Elite Comics or your local shop.
