New release: Titan Books just released the third volume in their Complete James Bond Classic Comic Strip Collection! The new hardcover edition includes strips from 1960-1966: Goldfinger, Risico, From a View to a Kill, For Your Eyes Only, The Man With the Golden Gun, and The Living Daylights. I love looking at the original strips, especially the work of the great John McLusky, which pre-dated the films and drew more directly from Ian Fleming's novels. From the press release: "James Bond returns to action in six thrilling adventures, starting with 007’s encounter with the titular Auric Goldfinger, the man with the Midas touch. Also included are Risico, From A View To A Kill, For Your Eyes Only, The Man With The Golden Gun and The Living Daylights, each of which has been painstakingly restored to create the highest quality reproduction of the original Express Newspapers’ strip available." More info at Amazon. Previous volumes include 1958-1960 (Casino Royale, Live And Let Die, Moonraker, Diamonds Are Forever, From Russia With Love, Dr No) and a SPECTRE omnibus (Thunderball, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me). Enjoy! Spy Vibers, I'm writing and producing a new Spy Vibe radio segment for Cocktail Nation out of Australia! More info HERE.
