The James Bond license was recently acquired by Dynamite Entertainment. So what does that mean? Well it gives them the right to publish comics, graphic novels, and digital comics about James Bond.
Dynamite Entertainment publisher, Nick Barrucci, said the company was:
“excited to build upon Fleming’s source material with new canonical stories, and… honored… to be a small part of his legacy, to be able to bring new stories to fans around the world.”
The managing director of Ian Fleming Publications Ltd., Corrine Turner had this to say about 007 and the comic.
“thrilled that 007 will be revisiting the world of comics, as Fleming’s novels have a long and successful history in this medium, ever since they began to be published as newspaper comic strips in the late fifties.”
The first comic series will be about the origins of 007, prior to the events of Casino Royale. This will be a great opportunity as it will help people understand James Bond a little more. It will only expand the Bond universe even more. I’m really looking forward to this, how about you?
