Sometimes you don’t know what your missing out on until you stumble up on it. I am a fan of the James Bond films, but I would not call myself hardcore. So when I saw that they were reprinting James Bond the comic strip, I wanted to check it out. How glad I am now because of it. Titan Books has released 4 Omnibus volumes that are chocked full of great illustrated Bond stories and the art of John McLusky and Yaroslav Horak.
Now here is the weird thing, I do not love all of the Bond films. Some I cannot watch, but seeing them in print form, in lush black and white gave me a new appreciation for the story and might even get me to look at certain movies again. Yes, I am talking about you “Diamonds are Forever”.
So if you are a fan of Bond and need to supplement a home movie marathon, get excited for the newest Bond film or just prefer the comic medium. Take a look at what Titan Books is putting out there and you will might be left wondering why strips like this aren’t making it in the “funny” pages anymore.
