James Bond: Hammerhead by Andy Diggle and Luca Casalanguida (Artist) is my favorite Bond graphic novel so far. The story is great and the art is fantastic.
The pace of the graphic novel is fast, but not lightning fast, and steady. Mr. Diggle keeps it steady with skill and humor peppered throughout. The villain in this book is strong and righteous, like all of us, the villain think of themselves as the hero of their own story and are not necessarily there just to see the world burn.
I truly enjoy Mr. Casalanguida artwork, when I read the books many, many years ago, this is the way I imagined Bond. The pictures seem more European in nature, vibrant with sharp line. Even though I read this book as a galley on a computer, the panel structure made sense and he uses the splash pages to remind the reader that they are still in Bond’s world.
This is the second graphic novel I read from Dynamite Comics, they certainly do live up to their name and left me itching for more.
James Bond is assigned to track down a radical anti-capitalist known as Kraken. Kraken has turned England’s’ nuclear arsenal.
Trying to find the villain, Bond realizes that hidden hands are guiding behind the scenes trying to reclaim England’s former glory. Bond, a small cog in a big machine, must question himself and everything he believes in.
