James Bond is going back to his World War II roots in a new origin story from Dynamite Entertainment. From writer Jeff Parker and artist Bob Q. comes James Bond Origin, a story set in the heart of the UK during WWII.
"It's a weighty challenge to reverse-engineer this icon into a young man on a life's journey of danger, but [editor] Nate Cosby paired me up with Bob Q, who not only brings the gravitas of war in 1941 Europe but nails the promising hero in his youth. James doesn't have the vast experience of a double-O agent yet, but he's tenacious and a lightning-quick study. Bob and I work to show the full force of Bond's spirit."
James Bond Origin #1 is set to release in September and will include variant covers from John Cassaday, David Mack, Kev Walker, Gene Ha, Ibrahim Moustafa, and Bob Q. & Jordan Boyd.
