Strip Panel Naked: Eyeline Control in ‘James Bond: Hammerhead’


A big part about what makes comics work is eyelines. I’ve talked before about Chris Samnee’s genius use of them on the current Black Widow series, but another great example caught my attention this week.

The opening page of James Bond: Hammerhead, by Luca Casalanguida, Chris Blythe, Andy Diggle and Simon Bowland struck me immediately. It brings you straight into the action with the rather dynamic, but simple, page design.

Dynamite Announces ‘Sweet Valley High’ Comics, Benjamin Percy On ‘James Bond,’ And More [NYCC 2016]

So here's the bad news: The sentence "Dynamite announces new James Bond, Bettie Page, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and Sweet Valley High comics" does not refer to one single series that's going to combine all of those properties into a single high-school themed alternate universe where Tarzan, 007, and the real-life queen of pin-up photography are all taking math class together and trying to figure out who to ask to the prom.

The good news, though, is that they're four separate announcements that all seem pretty interesting: Writer Benjamin Percy taking over James Bond, Bill Willingham returning to Dynamite with artist Cezar Rezak for the Burroughs-themed crossover The Greatest Adventure, a new line of Sweet Valley High graphic novels, and – for the first time since 1997, the return of Bettie Page to officially licensed comics.

Dynamite Launches New James Bond Miniseries ‘Hammerhead’ By Diggle And Casalanguida


James Bond is a franchise that was just begging for a great comics adaptation for years, and we finally got everything we wanted when Warren Ellis and Jason Masters were announced as the creators of an ongoing 007 comic last year. Now, following the success of that ongoing series, Dynamite is launching a new James Bond miniseries titled Hammerhead by Andy Diggle and Luca Casalanguida.

Tom Hiddleston Responds to Bond Rumors, Teases Another Hulk Clash in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’


Tom Hiddleston hasn’t seemed particularly enthusiastic or optimistic about reprising the role of Loki in the MCU, but with Avengers: Infinity War promising the epic assembly of Marvel characters yet and a new Thor sequel on the way, the actor’s return seemed inevitable. During a recent appearance at Wizard World, Hiddleston expressed excitement for Thor: Ragnarok, teasing the evolution of his mischievous villain and confirming another run-in with the Hulk. Oh, and he also responded to those James Bond rumors.

Nobody Does It Better: The Best James Bond Fan Art Ever

Darwyn Cooke

It doesn't matter if you're talking about Sean Connery or Daniel Craig. James Bond has a classic kind of cool that can't be denied. And while he's been put beside some ingenious gadgets, iconic weapons, and sweet cars, it's never been the toys that make the man. If anything, Bond has done more for product placement than it ever did for him. He's the classic case of women wanting him and men wanting to be him (but also men wanting him and women wanting to be him, let's be honest). Unless, of course, you're a megalomaniacal villain. Then he's the bane of your existence.

In celebration of that love and the new franchise entry, we've hunted down some of the best art the fandom has to offer. From the classic Connery to the fresh Craig, we're happy to share some of the best fan artist renditions of the world's most beloved spy.

ICYMI: James Bond Just Threw A Cinderblock At A Guy And It Was Awesome

James Bond #1, Dynamite Entertainment

I'm not the type of person who's going to go out and buy the wristwatches or anything, but I'd like to think I'm a pretty big fan of the James Bond movies, and the one scene I like more than anything else in the entire 24-film franchise is the cold open to Casino Royale. The brutality of that black-and-white fight scene and the way that Bond becomes 007 gets me every time. Which, I imagine, is why I was so thrilled by the cold open to Warren Ellis and Jason Masters' James Bond #1, which has a similar bit of savagery that, in their case, is all business.

And in case you missed it? James Bond just broke a cinderblock on a dude's back by throwing it at him.

The World is Not Enough: The Best Bond Villain Fan Art Ever


Over the course of the last several decades, James Bond has come across his fair share of villains. They’re some of the most colorful class of egomaniacs, sociopaths, thugs, dental problems, hat throwers, and femme fatales. This veritable cast of sometimes classy, sometimes crass criminals all present a unique challenge to Mr. Bond. Whether he’s tied to a chair, strapped a table, or hanging precariously over another death trap, Bond will often inevitably fall into his enemy’s clutches. Lucky for him they also tend to monologue for a while and then leave him alone with more than enough time to figure out how not to die in their precarious traps.

Dr. No came out in 1962. It starred Sean Connery along with Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder and Joseph Wiseman as the nefarious Dr. No. More than fifty years later, Connery and several more 007s have worked their way through a cavalcade of bad boys and girls who just want to own the world, destroy the world, or do any other number of things that catch the iconic M16’s attention. Being around for so long, there’s no lack of infatuation with creating art based around this colorful cast. We scoured for some of the best the rabid fan base had to offer to the iconic spy universe. We hope you’ll enjoy this extensive gallery of Bond baddies.

57 Years Ago: Superspy James Bond Made His Comics Debut


On this day in 1958, the world’s most famous MI6 Agent took to the world of comics for the first time, as Ian Fleming’s James Bond brought his hard-drinking, womanizing, spy-killing adventures to the pages of UK newspaper The Daily Express just five years after the launch of the novels with Casino Royale.
