[SDCC’16] Dynamite Entertainment to adapt original James Bond novels

Dynamite Entertainment has announced it will adapt Ian Fleming’s original James Bond novels into comic book form, beginning with Casino Royale.

Van Jensen will write the graphic novel with Matt Southworth providing art.

“There’s a very obvious reason why I wanted to tackle the adaptation of Casino Royale: because it’s James damned Bond! Also, when I cracked open Ian Fleming’s first 007 novel (I had read it years before), it also immediately appealed to me as a great creative challenge,” says writer Van Jensen. “Fleming’s prose is powered by his descriptive punch, an eye for detail that captures the post World War II time period in full color, from decadent meals to the intricacies of baccarat to the sinister machinations of Le Chiffre. It’s a heady book, diving deep into the character of Bond. Adapting it into comic book form meant creating some fun new approaches to storytelling, to recast a familiar tale as something that hasn’t been seen before. Also, it’s James damned Bond!”

James Bond: Casino Royale arrives in December!

I’m looking forward to seeing a comic book adaptation of James Bond stories that are not based on the movies.
