    By Devin Zydel on 2008-06-16

    Although it technically isn’t due for release until 27 June in the UK, the newest collection from Titan Books, The Paradise Plot is currently shipping from

    This collection features Deathmask in addition to the title story and is introduced by Moonraker Bond girl Lois Chiles. As with the previous Death Wing and Shark Bait collections, Alan J. Porter contributes a new article on the US comic book adventures of Bond in this collection.

    As previously reported on, what is especially interesting to note about both of the stories in this 007 collection (originally syndicated in 1981-83) is that they marked the first time that long-time writer Jim Lawrence and artist John McLusky had worked together on the Bond adventures.

    The Paradise Plot will be released in the US on 8 July.

    The legend continues! Stand by for more adventures with the world’s greatest and most famous secret agent, James Bond, as some of his most thrilling missions are collected for the first time ever in a deluxe collectors’ library edition! In this latest action-packed volume, Bond teams up with fellow 00 agent Suzi Kew once again on another sun-soaked escapade, The Paradise Plot. Not seen since its original publication in a British newspaper, this ultra rare adventure finally returns to print!

    This new, never-before-collected edition also features Lawrence and McLusky’s rarely seen story Deathmask, plus a new introduction by one of the Bond girls and an exclusive feature on rare and unusual James Bond comics from around the world!
