Not that I'm gonna argue against actual stories about Bond in WWII (still hoping the Young Bond novels get there eventually), but how many origins does Bond need? First there was Casino Royale, then the Young Bonds, now this?
I know what you mean, however I simply see it as showing Bond during different stages of his life. How he transitioned from different institutions (school and then the navy) until he finally arrived at MI6. I'm eager to see what they come up with, because this won't just be the typical run of the mill story. There's a sense of importance about it.
At any rate, this continued support for the line seems to be in contrast with an article on MI6 that said the titles were in freefall and probably wouldn't last much longer.
Yeah, it's full steam ahead. That article didn't paint the full picture because it only had stats from Dynamite's distributor in the US. It didn't include digital or foreign sales. The situation may not be as bleak as we think.
