007 For King and Country–New series begins 70th year of Ian Fleming’s James Bond

The 70th year of Ian Fleming’s James Bond begins with a new comic book series from Dynamite Entertainment.  England’s famous super spy is back, this time accused of murder on British soil.  Bond is marked a traitor by his own government and M has directed all the other 00 agents to go after him.  This leaves Bond a man on the run, with only 003–Gwendolyn Gann–as his sole ally.  Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Superman, Aliens) with artwork by Giorgio Spalletta (Red Sonja), 007: For King and Country has a title with that word–King, instead of Queen–that could steer Bond stories into new directions for his second 70 years.

Take a look at these previews of the covers for the first issue of 007: For King and Country:

Can James and Gwen survive to die another day?  Or will their own allies catch up to them before they can unravel a conspiracy?

Along with Bond’s 70th anniversary, Dynamite is also making available to retailers and fans again the wide range of James Bond graphic novels produced to date.  The library–most reviewed here at borg over the past decade–includes works from creators including Benjamin Percy, Warren Ellis, Andy Diggle, Greg Pak, Jeff Parker, James Robinson, Vita Ayala, and many more.

The covers for the first issue of 007: For King and Country include work by Joseph Michael Linsner, Rebeca Puebla, Chuma Hill, and Lesley “Leirix” Li.

Add 007: For King and Country to your pull list at Elite Comics or your local comic shop.  It is scheduled to ship in April 2023.
