Big day for comics! I’ve got three books in stores today — please do feel free to ask your local shop to hold copies for you!
FIREFLY #20 — with art by Daniel Bayliss, colors by Francesco Segala, letters by Jim Campbell, cover by Marc Aspinall, and editing by Jeanine Schaefer and Gavin Gronenthal — brings the Bandit King mystery to a head and sets up a shocking climax that sets the stage for BLUE SUN RISING, the first ever FIREFLY comics event!
DARTH VADER #5 — with art by Rafaelle Ienco, colors by Neeraj Menon, letters by Joe Caramagna, cover by InHyuk Lee, and editing by Mark Paniccia and Tom Groneman — is the big end to our first story arc, with the Dark Lord of the Sith finally finding the tomb of Padmé Amidala.
Finally, JAMES BOND: REFLECTIONS OF DEATH is a big anthology book featuring Bond stories by six different great teams. I wrote a story drawn by Dean Kotz, colored by Kike J. Diaz, lettered by Ariana Maher, and edited by Nate Cosby in which Bond has an unexpected meeting with his old frenemy John Lee, a.k.a. the new Odd Job. Other stories in the book were written by Andy Diggle, Benjamin Percy, Gail Simone, Mark Russell, Vita Ayala & Danny Lore and drawn by Luca Casalanguida, Kewber Baal, Eoin Marron, Robert Carey, and Jordi Perez.

The Oddjob saga continues with Bond in jail and John Lee, our sexy Korean super agent, on a solo mission fraught with danger and romance!
The book’s already nabbed a stunning 10/10 review from AiTP.com — here’s an excerpt!
As a massive Bond fan, as well as someone who loved Warren Ellis’ Dynamite series and many of the one-shots and miniseries that followed, I think this book and its sister series (James Bond: Origin) may be the very best post-Fleming Bond media to come along in quite a few years. Somehow, this book keeps subverting expectations and getting better with each issue.
The book also features a HUGE reveal that we’ve managed to keep secret for MONTHS. If you’re a Bond fan, you absolutely, positively don’t wanna miss this issue. Ask your local retailer to hold a copy for you today!
Friends, JAMES BOND 007 #4 is in stores today, and YOU WANT THIS BOOK! New arc featuring line art by Stephen Mooney, colors by Triona Farrell, and letters by Ariana Maher. Wary team up between Bond and the new Oddjob, John Lee. Big intrigue and action. Huge heart. And yes, my friends, karaoke. KARAOKE.

JAMES BOND 007 #1 hits comic book shops in November. Ask your local shop to order a copy for you today!
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!
