by Hannah Means Shannon

Dynamite Entertainment has unveiled the next development in their line of James Bond comics, a one-shot arriving in November titled Solstice.

Multi Eisner-Award nominee Ibrahim Moustafa (Jaeger, High Crimes, Savage Things) will both write and draw the 30-page one shot, which is expected to hit shelves November 22, 2017.

According to Dynamite, in James Bond: Solstice, 007 accepts a mysterious, unofficial mission in Paris where he is instructed to pursue a dangerous Russian. But is Bond the hunter, or the hunted?

Writer/Artist Ibrahim Moustafa has the following to say about the one-shot and the franchise:

I am an absolute James Bond fanatic! I have a deep love of the character and his sense of duty within his world of smoky card rooms, tailored suits, refined tastes and eccentric villains. Like most, my affinity for the gentleman spy began with the film franchise, but the original literary version of Bond would eventually become my favorite iteration of the character. I was absolutely thrilled when Dynamite launched their James Bond series depicting Fleming’s Bond in a modern context, and the opportunity to tell a story within that setting is quite literally a dream come true for me. Working with editor Nate Cosby has been one of the most rewarding collaborations that I’ve had working in comics, and I’m very grateful to the folks at Ian Fleming Publications Ltd. and Dynamite for the opportunity to send 007 on a mission of my very own!

James Bond: Solstice will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ September 2017 Previews catalog and slated for release in November 2017.

James Bond: Solstice will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.
