    I don t usually read graphic novels because that term is just a way that lazy readers can pretend they are reading a proper book when they re really just looking at comics However, I made an exception in this case because I already knew the character of James Bond, and I thought maybe I d be a bittolerant regarding something I was familiar with The book contains abridged but faithful renditions of seven Bond novels and three short stories in comic strip form, in the way they d been pub I don t usually read graphic novels because that term is just a way that lazy readers can pretend they are reading a proper book when they re really just looking at comics However, I made an exception in this case because I already knew the character of James Bond, and I thought maybe I d be a bittolerant regarding something I was familiar with The book contains abridged but faithful renditions of seven Bond novels and three short stories in comic strip form, in the way they d been published in newspapers decades ago, now collected together in one place to create full narratives John McClusky s drawings show a Bondrugged than the pretty boy cinematic versions, and because the stories are based on Fleming s original work, which had always been less fantastic than the movies, they often lack the silly gadgets and megalomaniacal supervillains, all of which lends them arealistic edge I was pleasantly surprised to find I enjoyed it a lot and was a little disappointed when the book came to an end However, the final page advertises the second volume in the series, so I ll have to keep an eye out for it

    It was neat to see Ian Fleming s original comics, but unfortunately comics in the 1960 s were not very exciting These arefactual tellings of the stories, a very simply written event by event summary of what happens, with panels illustrating the text in its most literal form though the art itself is nice In short historically interesting, but lacking in narrative style and the intrigue that would have come with it.

    Massively disappointing, this collection suffers from three problems First, uneven writing Some of the stories are rather well paced, but others are a disaster Two, John McLusky is a poor visual storyteller Before Sean Connery was cast as Bond, he drew the character to look just as Connery would look in the part and perhaps that inspired director Terrance Young to cast the part with Connery The rest, however, is plodding art Third and finally, some crazy editor decided to reprint these com Massively disappointing, this collection suffers from three problems First, uneven writing Some of the stories are rather well paced, but others are a disaster Two, John McLusky is a poor visual storyteller Before Sean Connery was cast as Bond, he drew the character to look just as Connery would look in the part and perhaps that inspired director Terrance Young to cast the part with Connery The rest, however, is plodding art Third and finally, some crazy editor decided to reprint these comic strips too small for easy reading It is a strain read the words and occasionally to know what McLusky s art depicts

    Big fan of James Bond and really enjoyed the comic adaptations of the books.The stories seem to find the right blend of detail and length in order to relay the action without losing the readers interest.I look forward to moving on to the next omnibus to see how they adapt the rest of Fleming s novels and what other stories are unearthed.

    Das sind schlicht und ergreifend keine besonders guten Comics Aus heutiger Sicht sind sie schlicht und ergreifend altbacken, aber selbst zur urspr nglichen Erscheinungszeit gab es bessere Comics Man merkt, dass diese hier einfach nur die Romane in straffer Comic Form wiedergeben Das hat einen gewissen nostalgischen Wert, mehr aber auch nicht.

    Good comics, well representative of the character.

    It s entertaining to read these adaptations of the books they predate the films, so they re not tainted by Connery, Lazenby, Moore, et al They readlike tough guy stories than fancy spy capers, and they regripping for it Of course, the three panel strip format has its limitations, so they re still not as good as reading Fleming s prose, and they had to tone the stories down for the newspapers of the late 1950s, but they re still worth reading, especially the adaptations of the les It s entertaining to read these adaptations of the books they predate the films, so they re not tainted by Connery, Lazenby, Moore, et al They readlike tough guy stories than fancy spy capers, and they regripping for it Of course, the three panel strip format has its limitations, so they re still not as good as reading Fleming s prose, and they had to tone the stories down for the newspapers of the late 1950s, but they re still worth reading, especially the adaptations of the lesser known short stories

    Po faced in comparison with the novels, presumably because of the risk that tiny tots will read comics It s particularly noticeable that all the lesbian stuff is edited out of Goldfinger, rendering bits of it somewhat baffling.I love the way Bond is drawn he s based on Ian Fleming s description and looks muchhow I imagine Bond than any of the movie versions do Po faced in comparison with the novels, presumably because of the risk that tiny tots will read comics It s particularly noticeable that all the lesbian stuff is edited out of Goldfinger, rendering bits of it somewhat baffling.I love the way Bond is drawn he s based on Ian Fleming s description and looks muchhow I imagine Bond than any of the movie versions do
