German cover for TRIGGER MORTIS ("The Finger of God")

Here's the German cover art for Trigger Mortis by Anthony Horowitz. As you can see, it follows the UK design with localized typeface. Interestingly, it retains the English title and adds the translation Der Finger Gottes -- "The Finger of God" -- below.

I believe this is the first International cover art we've yet seen for the new Bond book.

Trigger Mortis will be published in Germany on September 8 (same day as the U.S. and UK releases) by Cross Cult who are currently republishing the John Gardner James Bond continuation novels.

Pre-order Trigger Mortis - Der Finger Gottes at Amazon.de.

Dynamite's first "James Bond 007" comic will be VARGR by Warren Ellis

Comic Book Resources has scored the exclusive first details of the new "James Bond 007" comic book series from Dynamite. The first issue will be released in November and will be called VARGR. It will be a six-issue story arc written by Warren Ellis with art by Jason Masters.

"Ian Fleming's James Bond is an icon, and it's a delight to tell visual narratives with the original, brutal, damaged Bond of the books," says Warren Ellis.

Great-nephew of Ian Fleming, Diggory Laycock says, "We were thrilled when Warren agreed to write the first story in this exciting new chapter of literary James Bond. Warren's style is gritty, dark, and unique, and we can't wait to see James Bond embroiled in an adventure of his creation."

Below is cover art and official plot description for VARGR:

"James Bond returns to London after a mission of vengeance in Helsinki, to take up the workload of a fallen 00 agent... but something evil is moving through the back streets of the city, and sinister plans are being laid for Bond in Berlin."

CBR also has an interview with Dynamite Senior Editor Joseph Rybandt. According to Rybandt, the 10 year license from IFPL will include adaptations of the original novels ("we have our writer for the adaptation of Casino Royale who just started writing the script") as well as an origin series of graphic novels to be set in the period of the original novels.

ANTHONY HOROWITZ launches new official website

Bond author Anthony Horowitz has launched a newly redesigned official website. Here you'll be able to keep up with the author's Trigger Mortis event appearances and whatnot. The site also has fourms. Anthony writes:

So welcome to my new website!

The whole idea is to help keep me in touch with my audience…and, of course, vice versa. Whenever I’m out doing talks or signings, my movements will be posted here. If there's any news, I’ll try to make sure it appears on this site first.

Publication day for my new James Bond novel, TRIGGER MORTIS is on September 8th and I have that to look forward to. I’ll be on tour in the UK and then in America and Canada. There are two or three literary festivals penciled.

Visit the new site at: www.anthonyhorowitz.com. The author is also very active on Twitter @AnthonyHorowitz.
