Phillip Kennedy Johnson Returns To James Bond In ‘007: For King And Country’
by Erik Amaya
2023 marks the 70th Anniversary of Ian Fleming‘s internationally famous MI6 spy James Bond 007. And Dynamite vows to celebrate the milestone with a special 007 series: 007: For King and Country from writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Giorgio Spalletta.
This time around though, Bond is the hunted. Accused of a murder on British soil, M dispatches the other 00s to revoke Bond’s license permanently. Forced to go underground, he can only count on the presumed dead 003, Gwendolyn Gann, as his ally because — in reality — they are on a top secret mission to prevent a globe-shattering event. Will they be able to unravel a conspiracy before M’s best catch up with them and punch their tickets?
The first issues is backed with covers from Spalletta, Joseph Michael Linsner — making his Bond debut — Rebeca Puebla, Chuma Hill, and Lesley “Leirix” Li. Additionally, Dynamite will be making available a range of previous 007 adventures from the likes of Benjamin Percy, Andy Diggle, Greg Pak, Jeff Parker, James Robinson, Vita Ayala, and more.
007: For King and Country #1 hits stores this April.
