James Bond Review

    What a ride. Kot is a great choice for writing the acerbic and disgruntled Bond, especially since he seems to have free reign in this series. The tone jumps with each issue, going from somber to funny to heartbreaking and then back again. Ales manages to deliver more quotable lines in 6 issues than Diggle did in 12. Definitely up there with Ellis among the Bond comics.

    I've never been a James Bond fan. Never group up with the character, other than playing Golden Eye. I got bored to quickly with the marathons. What seemed so stylish THEN seemed so dated to me me Now. My other exposures had been through other media, such as Casino Royale via the book, the parody and the recent film--which I actually enjoyed.In many ways, James Bond was wish-fulfillment that I didn't wish to embody. He was tall, annoyingly charming. Catch my surprise with this recent spat of qual I've never been a James Bond fan. Never group up with the character, other than playing Golden Eye.

He was tall, annoyingly charming. Catch my surprise with this recent spat of quality writers--with Warren Ellis, and now Ales Kot. Kot writes the character if he caught a bit of self-awarness. Awareness that he's part of the military industrial complex, awarness that he's a womanizer and a perhaps a misogynist, and that he has a duty to QUESTION Queen and Country. The fact that this is now canonical, and not just an emulation (i.e. Kingsman, Zero, etc.) makes it all the more special. The character has actually been allowed to grow, imo. Rather than put back in the box and just come back shiny, new and different every few years.Let's hope these "changes" stick.
