For Your Comic Book Eyes Only

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Just an hour ago, it was announced that Bond and Saint actor, Sir Roger Moore, passed away at the age of 89.  Although this is not a Bond website, agent 007 did make it to the comics more than once.

     Back in the 60s, DC put out an adaptation of "Dr. No" with a cover by "Challengers of the Unknown" artist Bob Brown.  But alas, no follow-up.

     In the 70s, Marvel Comics put out a Marvel Super Special version of a few of the Roger Moore movies.  By the 90s, a wonderful new story, featuring art by Paul Gulacy, "The Serpent's Tooth," (I think was its name) hit it out of the park.

     Then, Titan Publishing began collecting the James Bond Comic Strip.  There have been several editions collected by now as they take up most of one shelf in my den.  And now a small press is reviving Bond in the comics but I have so far been not too impressed with their output.

     But rest easy, Sir Roger, the monarchy is still safe, Bond still lives.

     Take care and adopt a (Bond) comic book today!
