This is a dark, violent, grimy and foggy tale, a noir tale of madness which only gets more and more paranoid as the story evolves.
James Bond: Black Box by Benjamin Percy (art by Rapha Lobosco) is a solid entry into Dynamite’s Bond library even though the plot is weak and predictable, but well written
