James Bond and SPECTRE return in "EIDOLON"

In an exclusive interview with writer Warren Ellis, Comic Book Resources has revealed that Dynimite's next James Bond story arc will begin in issue #7 and will be called Eidolon. They've also revealed that SPECTRE will be part of the new story.

After World War Two, army intelligence groups created ghost cells called "stay-behinds" across Europe in the event of a Warsaw Pact surge. "EIDOLON" is the story of a SPECTRE stay-behind structure - ghost cells of SPECTRE loyalists acting as sleepers until the time is right for a SPECTRE reformation and resurgence. The time is now.

James Bond #7 Eidolon will launch June 15, the same day the first 6-part story arc, Vargr, is released in a collected hardcover.

  1. Vargr has been profoundly mediocre. I doubt I'll continue giving them $4 a month for Bond-in-name-only boredom punctuated by oddly graphic violence.

    1. Profoundly Action Packed, just needs some plot and character development

  2. Vargr means wolf, evildoer or destroyer
    Eidolon means "image, idol, double, apparition, phantom, ghost"

    1. Oh, thank you. I got that from the Dynamite interview itself. Didn't check it out myself. I've zapped it.
