Should be getting this very soon now, and judging by everything thus far, it should be a fantastic read.

Did you have yours pre-ordered, Qwerty? Because I already got mine from Amazon.com (got it at the end of December in fact).

End of December?

No, I didn't, I only just ordered mine today. (It says on the site Jan 30th, but it gave me notice I'd get mine in 24 hours.) Amazon messing up on their shipping dates?

Yes. Even though the site said Jan 30th, it shipped at the end of December. I thought I did a quick link?

You probably did Zen, and I overlooked it or confused it with amazon.co.uk. No matter, I had the On Her Majesty’s Secret Service copy then, so now I've got something to last me until Casino Royale comes.

Maybe now that we're going back to Fleming titles, they will finally use RISICO.

And before someone shoot back with the standard "but nobody will know what Risico means, zencat?" ...think about what Octopussy meant before anyone saw the film...or Tomorrow Never Dies (even after seeing the film, I'm still not sure I understand that one. :)).

It's high time to use it. I'd love to see Bond 22 titled that. A few well placed lines including the word, and it could easily be explained. It's not like fans can't figure these things out.

For those interested in printing the translated pages of the missing panels for Goldfinger and Thunderball, it seems Red has been good to his word and has them up on his site for downloading.

They're moderately chunky files so a broadband connection or patience or a work based link will be necessary.

They're in the Appendix links.

Cheers sir.

(And true to my word, I've bought these four currently available and am happy to say I'll be getting the other two once available. Any news on the Spy and Colonel Sun possibilities?)

While I was in Sydney recently I went into Phantom Zone (a specıalıst comic/graphic novel shop in Parramatta) and asked about the Bond books. They never heard of them and didn't even know Titan! :)

I gave than one of my CBn business cards and suggested that they come to CBn and Red's site to get the lowdown. :)

I had to keep the files relatively big in order to maintin the necessary quality in order to print well....but I agree you may need to have patience with a slow connection :)

No word on anything beyond the Dr. No collection which will complete the McLusky stories when released in May. Casino Royale is out now in the UK and is a timely release given the announcement of the title for the next film!

Casino Royale is pretty good quality compared with the previous release but the first two stories suffer from a lot of missing background detail which was present in the original Titan release of these strips. The rarely seen Moonraker fares better and is cleaner and more detailed by comparison. The three strips are complete and have none of the peculiarities that dogged the Goldfinger collection. These stories represent the first three Fleming stories to be serialised in this way and stand up pretty well considering they are over 40 years old. The intro by Roger Moore is basic stuff with one unfortunate error and an overview of the post Fleming novels rounds things off.

I got Casino Royale today, from Amazon($11& change), and read it one sitting. I liked Roger's foreword. Not sure is I'm going to get Dr.No as it, essentially, is a reprint of The Illustrated James Bond. I'm hoping Titan continues after to reprint the series after that collection, and am chomping at the bit to read the strip version of Colonel Sun.

Any sales figures on how these collections are selling?

Yep, Amazon US.

Yes, sometimes cancelling and reordering kicks it forward, for whatever reason.

I guess it still could happen at a later date. Would be nice to own a boxed set of these graphic novels.

Well, if you ordered all 4 of them from Amazon they would be sent to you in the same package. Close enough?

I have mine on order, but it's bundled with some other items. No matter, I'm in no hurry - I got lots of Benson to read until then.
