Dynamite announces a new original James Bond graphic novel for release in February, incorporating contributions from a cavalcade of writers and artists to celebrate the timelessness of the character and the countless talented creators who have brought him to comics.

James Bond in “Reflections of Death” is a 128 page hardcover of nonstop thrills and intrigue. Several Dynamite Bond veterans return for this tapestry, including Benjamin Percy (Wolverine, X-Force), Andy Diggle (Daredevil, Green Arrow) and Greg Pak (Star Wars, Agents of Atlas) and the writers of the December-launching new ongoing series, Vita Ayala (Morbius, Xena) & Danny Lore (Queen of Bad Dreams). Stars of both Dynamite and comics at large Gail Simone (Deadpool, Wonder Woman) and Mark Russell (Red Sonja, The Flintstones) join the team as well. Artists enlisted for the mission include Luca Casalanguida (Hammerhead, Kill Chain, The Body), Robert Carey (James Bond 007), Jordi Perez (Xena), Dean Kotz (Warlord of Mars Attacks), Eoin Marron (Killer Groove) and Kewber Baal (KISS). All wrapped up in another beautiful noir and pulp flavored cover by Fay Dalton (Casino Royale, Vampirella).

With a framing story Ayala and Lore, over 20 total creators will collaborate to contribute stories that both stand on their own and tie into an overarching narrative. The central figure through the anthology of case files is Moneypenny. She’s been kidnapped. and the mystery of her captors and their demands will only be revealed when, or if, 007 is able to complete his missions. While Moneypenny herself may have some surprises up her sleeve.

“We’re incredibly fortunate to work with so many talented creators, and of course they all want to write one of the most crucial characters in modern fiction!,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “Just in time for the new movie, for fans to enjoy a bounty of Bond too!”

Dynamite asked each writer to distill what they think makes Bond such a timeless character and compelling to write.

Benjamin Percy – “Bond epitomizes cool. He wears the sharpest suits, drives the sleekest cars, owns the wildest gadgets. Men want to be him, women want to be with him. He never shies from danger. He always says the right thing, usually with a confident smile curling the corner of his mouth. He’s aspirational. Through him, we can dream of shrugging off our insecurities and making an impact in the world.”

“But that veneer of perfection hides a relatable flaw. He is emotionally scarred, numb, cold. This is a person who does horrible things for a greater good. So he drinks liver-deadening amounts of booze and sleeps around and discards those close to him so that he can armor himself against horrors.”
