Felix Leiter #2 is out, and it just confirms something I've felt for a long while: the Bond films need to return to Japan.

I think they avoided it because YOLT did put it front and centre for the whole film rather than just being a stop over whilst globe trotting (hello Venice) but yeah, it's been 50 years, probably safe to revisit now!

Just got Green Arrow Rebirth based on how much I loved Felix Leiter #1 (Percy wrote that too and he mentioned somewhere that it was why Dynamite offered Leiter to him whch led to him doing Black Box)

‚ÄčIt's very good so far, making me more and more excited for his run on Bond.

The newest issue of HAMMERHEAD is par for the course for Diggle's run: good set-pieces, dodgy writing.

Wow, Hammerhead really jumped the shark with #5.  Nice art.  Cliched and blathering script and plot.  First of the new Bond comic issues that I found truly bad.  Diggle just doesn't get Bond.

Dynamite has announced a 48 page special called 'Service', written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Antonio Fuso. 

 

http://comicsallianc...rvice-dynamite/

 

"In contemporary politics, where Britain's world standing is often more zero than 007, an assassin plans to exterminate the "special relationship," and lead Britain and the United States into a very dark place...especially when he does so by aiming down the sights of an ancient Enfield rifle! It'll test Bond's deadly talents to their limits, in order to defeat the assassin and avert certain geopolitical disaster..."

Black Box #1.  Very film Bond.  Don't want to drop too many spoilers, but the first person narrative from Bond is different.  Will be interested to see what everyone else thinks.

Agree that he's more movie Bond than literary Bond.

As a life long 007 reader/movie fan and ageless comic collector I prefer the literary version in Comics

Definitely a big film Bond influence with Black Box. It didn't push any boundaries but I still found it a fun read.

I've got very behind on the comics (other things have cropped up which has pushed me back on all my reading) so I'm looking forward to getting caught up.

Just finished Felix #3.  Sexy, moody, dark and noir-ish (both in tone and in artwork), solid action, very adult and very intelligent.  Just brilliant.

FELIX is the only one of these that feels like it belongs alongside the Ellis arcs. Really good stuff.

Good way to describe it. This comic series has helped me connect more with Felix's character. Film wise, I think Lord, Van Nutter, Hedison, Casey and Wright were all solid in their own way. But Linder, Burton and Terry were miscast. This comic series is one of the high-points for the character.
