BOND GIRL MARVEL MASHUP

Here is something I would have loved when I was a kid! Freelancer Bill Walko has created a series of images that mash characters from Marvel Comics up with Bond Girl iconography. Entitled The Women of Marvel/Shaken and Stirred, Spy Vibers will recognize the design motif inspired by Michael Gilette's book covers. The first three are perhaps the most widely known characters and Walko shows a humorous undercurrent by pairing them with specific Fleming titles that relate to their character arcs. Happy Wednesday (new comic book day), Spy Vibers! 

Get ready to meet MIKI ZERO, a Japanese fashion model and spy from 1965! That's right, I've written a novel inspired by Spy Vibe. More info at my website here.
