EIDOLON begins today in James Bond #7

Dynamite's second story arc, EIDOLON, begins today in James Bond #7. The story is again written by Warren Ellis with art by Jason Masters.

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.

You can purchase James Bond #7 at the Dynamite website. A hardcover collected edition of the previous story, VARGR, will be released on July 5 and can be pre-ordered on (U.S.) and (UK).
