Before James Bond raced across the big screen, Ian Fleming's secret agent appeared in a comic strip in the Daily Express. These exciting adaptations of Fleming's novels were originally drawn by John McLusky starting in 1958, and James Bond strips continued with other artists and stories through 1984 in various newspapers. Titan Books has been reprinting the comics in a beautiful series of volumes. The James Bond Omnibus Volume 5 was released today and includes the following later stories by Jim Lawrence and Taroslav Horak: Till Death Do Us PartThe Torch-Time AffairHot-ShotNightbirdApe of DiamondsWhen The Wizard AwakesSea DragonDeath Wing and The Xanadu Connection.
