Late last year, CommanderBond.net first alerted readers that an all-new comic strip collection from Titan Books was on the way for late 2009.
Entitled James Bond: Omnibus Volume 1: The Graphic Novel Collection, we now have full details on what fans can expect from this latest 007 volume, which is due for release this September.
As suspected, this volume brings together numerous (11 of them, in fact) different comic strip adventures that have previously been featured in earlier James Bond collections from Titan. Limited to original Ian Fleming material, this volume will showcase the work of writers Henry Gammidge, Anthony Hern and Peter O’Donnell and artist John McLusky.
The full blurb follows:
The daring James Bond is back in a definitive bumper edition collecting Ian Fleming’s earliest literary adventures in comic strip form! For the first time, eleven of Bond’s most thrilling and dangerous missions appear in a single volume: “Casino Royale”, “Live and Let Die”, “Moonraker”, “Diamonds are Forever”, “From Russia With Love”, “Dr. No”, “Goldfinger”, “Risico”, “From a View to a Kill”, “For Your Eyes Only” and “Thunderball”!
With an exclusive introduction by Sir Roger Moore, this huge volume features beautiful women, thrilling action, incredible gadgets and the odd Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred…this ultimate collection of Bond’s best is not to be missed.
James Bond: Omnibus Volume 1: The Graphic Novel Collection will be released on 25 September in the UK and 8 September in the US. Pre-order links follow at the end of this article.
