  1. 'Polestar' Is Titan's Next James Bond Collection

    While Shark Bait was just released last month and The Paradise Plot is coming this June, a few details have been released on the newest Titan Books James Bond collection: Polestar.

    According to this listing on amazon.com, the Polestar collection is planned for release on 4 November 2008.

    While no additional stories have been confirmed besides the obvious inclusion of Polestar, with Jim Lawrence listed as the author and series regulars Yaroslav Horak and John Mclusky as the illustrators, it seems likely that the accompanying stories could include Flittermouse, The Scent Of Danger, Snake Goddess and/or Double Eagle.

    Flittermouse was first published immediately before Polestar and the two stories together represent the final section of Series Five that was first serialised in the Daily Star.

    The next three stories, The Scent Of Danger, Snake Goddess and Double Eagle, complete Series Five and represent the final entries of Titan’s James Bond checklist. These strips were syndicated in non-UK newspapers. Mclusky worked with Lawrence on The Scent Of Danger, while Horak returned for the final two stories, Snake Goddess and Double Eagle.

    Readers will also want to note that Titan has skipped over six original 007 adventures while putting together some of their more recent collections. These titles include: The Girl Machine, Beware Of Butterflies, The Nevsky Nude, Hot-Shot, Nightbird, Ape Of Diamonds.

    We’ll just have to wait and see which additional stories will be included.

    Titan’s Polestar collection can currently be pre-ordered at amazon.com. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
