As New York Comic Con sets in, Dynamite Entertainment is making announcements about 2018 publications.
Fans will be pleased to hear more about James Bond, and even better, a deal with comics storyteller Ales Kot. Kot, who wrote Zero and Secret Avengers as well as many other series, is going to be writing a six issue series called James Bond: The Body.

Each issue will have an original story line that will “unite the full series”, and is set for a January 2018 launch.
As Bond undergoes a post-mission medical examination, he relays the story of his previous mission to the examiner. Each cut, bruise, and broken bone connected to a specific event of the mission. A connection is made between two people with different purposes: one to save lives, the other to take them.
Writer Ales Kot says:
I’m honored to be working on the original James Bond — a complicated character that reflects my interest in war, violence and power. I took the project on because I was encouraged to explore these interests and take Bond to places and situations he rarely, if ever, experienced in fiction — and see what truly makes him tick.
Ales Kot is a Czech-born writer, director and producer currently living in Los Angeles, CA where he specializes in the film, comic book, television, and video game industries.
Joseph Rybandt, Executive Editor for Dynamite:
We’ve been putting this together with Ales for some time now and it’s rewarding that we’re finally there,” says . “He’s got a grand vision for Bond that is unlike anything we’ve done to date, which bespeaks of his innovation and creative place in comics.
James Bond: the Body #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ November 2017 Previews catalog and slated for release in January 2018.
