This week, James Bond: Felix Leiter #4 arrives in stores. But that isn’t the end of James Bond series, as Dynamite Entertainment has announced the July release of James Bond: Kill Chain.
The mini-series will be written by Andy Diggle with art by Luca Casalanguida, and follows James Bond as he discovers a plot to smash NATO.
RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES!? Probably not… but maybe…
Regarding the context of the new series, Diggle says, “The decision to update the stoic Bond of Ian Fleming’s original novels from the moral certainties of the 1950s to our shifting, complex, present-day world was inspired – and inspiring. We live in treacherous times, and James Bond is the hero we need to navigate them. I have many more stories to tell, and I’m having the time of my life telling them. Working with Luca Casalanguida on James Bond: Hammerhead was one of the most creatively satisfying and enjoyable collaborations of my career, and his art for Kill Chain raises the bar even higher. Greg Smallwood’s stunning covers perfectly capture the blend of suave and brutality that has made Bond one of the century’s most enduring icons. Ably backed up by Chris Blythe on colors and Simon Bowland on lettering, we have the perfect tight-knit team to continue bringing you the exploits of the world’s greatest secret agent.”
