THE BODY collected hardcover released

Dynamite has released the collected hardcover edition of James Bond: The Body by Ales Kot with art by Luca Casalanguida.

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.

PART TWO - THE BRAIN
James Bond leads the interrogation of a scientist who allowed a lethal virus to be stolen. But when the investigation takes a surprising turn, Bond begins to question whether he is enough.
PART THREE - THE GUT
One sauna. Twenty Neo-Nazis. One Bond. James Bond.
This weapons deal won't go according to plan.
PART FOUR - THE HEART
On the run from a lethal antagonist, weaponless and wounded deep in the Highlands, Bond finds solace with a woman who exchanged her job as a doctor and a life in the city for a cottage and solitary life of a writer. Can Bond find a quiet peace unlike he has known before or will his life choices catch up with him?
AND MORE...

You can purchase the collected James Bond: The Body at Amazon.com (U.S.) and Amazon.co.uk (UK).

This week also sees the release of the first issue of Dynamite's new "James Bond 007" series by Greg Pak and Marc Laming.

  1. Are they still advertising this as having art by Luca Casalanguida? Disappointingly, he only drew one issue. Overall, IMO, this was the most disappointing James Bond comic to date, the nadir of Dynamite's run, and one of the worst Bond stories ever in any medium. (But of course I'll still need it for my collection... the curse of the completist.)

    1. I didn't care for it, but I didn't hate it. I think of it as a weird mid course experiment. Dynamite's own The Spy Who Loved Me.

  2. Definitely experimental! I suspect it might read a little better in a collected edition than it did in issues, where you have an entire issue with Bond in an interrogation cell, etc., which can become tiresome on its own.
