Examines the life of Ian Fleming, and the parts which made it into his famous books about Secret Service Agent James Bond.
The story mainly follows a small group of soldiers, the first of the SOE, who were rescued from Dunkirk and follows them through Operation Postmaster
The writer shows how Bond struggles with the decisions he makes and the actions he takes. He knows he will pay for bad decisions his superiors make, yet he executes his mission faithfully.
The artwork is excellent this is how I imagined James Bond to be when I was reading the Fleming novels Someone is assassinating allied agents-James Bond is next
Colonel Sun by Robert Markham is the first novel featuring British secret agent James Bond, 007, not written by Ian Fleming, the original author
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
I simply feel that the James Bond series should have gotten a much stronger finish than two short stories and two outlines for short stories.
The novel is not unreadable, it is enjoyable for the Bond fans, but it is far from being one of the best in the series
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 story was written after the film Dr. No was released, literary 007 gotten some of cinematic Bond’s persona.
