    Ye, the visor was a bit strange! Its about an assassin trying to sever the US-UK 'special relationship', but using an Enfield. So, I presume it is somebody from the past with a grudge :P

    I couldn't remember if we have a Felix thread or not, but figured it can be lumped in here anyway. So, it wasn't a hugely action packed issue. I felt that the Felix envying James thing made Felix unnecessarily petty. However, that last page... I want that as a print, or at least as a cover art!

    I've been commenting on the Felix issues off and on throughout this thread since I figure its all part of the same universe. I enjoyed issue 4 quite a bit. I agreed that the James Bond comments got a bit heavy handed at times, though I do like that they are exploring some of Felix's insecurities, especially after the shark attack he survived. That last page is beautiful. I am enjoying the Tiger/Felix team-up a lot in this arc. Does anyone know if the series is going to continue after this arc or is it just going to be six issues?

    Sorry, I missed this! As far as I know it is a single series, but I guess that depends on the response? I would love more though. I really want some extra mini series covering other characters, at least major character like Blofeld and a Moneypenny or Q mini series.

    Since this is following the continuity of the books, if I recall right Blofeld was killed at some point so I'm not expecting him to make an appearance. That said, I am hoping they continue with some of these miniseries following some of the supporting cast. I would enjoy if Leiter continued after issue 6 and tackled some issues that Bond may not typically come across.

    It is? Damn. I haven't actually read the books, maybe one a long time ago. I definitely need to... I'm currently read the collected editions of the comic strips from the 60-80's, they're good

    If I recall right, the comic strips based on the books generally following the plots of the books they are based on. I haven't read one in years though so I could be wrong

    Black Box #3 was ok, not spectacular, but ok. The scene in the arena reminded me of the Tomorrow Never Dies scene where Bond is approached by Stamper. I like the title of the next arc though, 'Kill Chain'. Sounds nice!

    Kieron Gillen is at Glasgow Comic Con in July (I arrive in Glasgow three days prior to start a research project, what awful timing ). I'm hoping that I can get my first HC volume of The Wicked + The Divine signed by him and James McKelvie. Most importantly, I'm hoping to get the Service one shot signed I'm not sure how to get a floppy signed though as it won't be slabbed, so I'm not sure how it is best to do... Any experience?

    I'm aware that this is my fourth back to back post, but... I was talking to Dynamite about future Bond series and I asked about mini series focusing on characters as discussed above, the response was;

    "Stay tuned - there may be some interesting news you'll appreciate coming in the next week or two!"

    I'm optimistic

    Interesting. I'm really curious to see what news will be coming our way in the next week or so. With Black Box about halfway done and Leiter being two issues away from finishing, it makes sense that they would start announcing what is coming next. Sadly, I have no experience getting writers to sign comics. That would be awesome if you are able to get Gillen to sign it!

    Finished reading From Russia with Love for the first time today. I've heard that Fleming had originally intended to make this his final Bond novel. Had it been, it certainly would have been a shocking way to end the series.

    Shocking in a good or bad way? I'd heard that it was his best haha I just finished Casino Royale, but I have the next two waiting

    Personally, I think it would have worked had it been the final novel, though I can see it annoying many people. What did you think of Casino? It was my favorite out of the 5 I've read so far.
