Greg Pak and Marc Laming launch JAMES BOND 007 in November!

Big news! I’m writing the new James Bond comic book series for Dynamite!

JAMES BOND 007, pencilled by Marc Laming, features the legendary secret agent going up against a mysterious assassin in a distinctive bowler hat who might end up as his greatest challenge and rival. The first issue debuts in November with a main cover by Dave Johnson.

In true secret agent form, James Bond has infiltrated my consciousness more than I probably even realize myself. Bond’s cool efficiency, ruthless determination, and lethal professionalism set the template for so many heroes and anti-heroes in genre fiction. And that ridiculously fun mix of espionage and sci fi with over-the-top set pieces that’s essential to the best Bond stories absolutely hits my buttons. 

So I was pretty much on board the minute my editor Nate Cosby asked if I’d be interested in writing a Bond story. But things kicked into high gear when when I pitched the idea of a story that reimagined Oddjob, the Korean assassin with the distinctive bowler hat who’s been one of Bond’s most memorable villains of all time. What if we told a story with a new mystery man who wears that distinctive bowler — and made him not just an assassin out to kill Bond, but a rival secret agent with his own agenda and big, emotional motives that might make him Bond’s greatest enemy — or greatest ally?

I’m thrilled to have the chance to play with these classic characters, giving them the biggest surprises, the funnest toys, and the wildest plot twists we can come up with — and maybe even a surprisingly moving emotional endgame. And I’m hugely excited about this creative team, with Marc Laming giving us that sleek action and character work he does so well! Can’t wait ’til we can show you what we’re cooking up!

Greg Pak and Dan McDaid bring FIREFLY to comics this November!

Did I mention I’m writing the new FIREFLY comic book series? I’m writing the new FIREFLY comic book series!

FIREFLY debuts in November, published by BOOM and based on the beloved Joss Whedon sci fi television show, with pencils by Dan McDaid!

I grew up in Texas in the ‘70s and ‘80s, so I’ve always loved the sci fi stories and the Westerns that are so essential to the show’s vibe. I’ve also got a huge affection for stories that embrace quirky relationships and humor but dig deep into real, high stakes emotional storytelling at the same time. In fact, I think that’s probably why my awesome editor Jeanine Schaefer pulled me on board — we had an absolutely tremendous time a few years back telling anything-goes stories about a group of misfits traveling through space and time  in the X-TREME X-MEN book, which feels like great prep for our new adventure.

The book’s been an absolute blast to work on so far — can’t wait to show you more!
