Rick Tulka's LICENSE RENEWED: Caber gets the boot

Continuing our special 40th anniversary celebration of John Gardner's License Renewed with another illustration by Rick Tulka. These appeared in a New York Post serialization of the book in July/August 1981 and are from the collection of our good friend Delmo Walters Jr.

Today Bond has his final battle with henchman Caber in the back of Anton Murik's C-130.

If this once again seems strangely familiar, that's because Bond has his climatic fight with henchman Necros in the back of a C-130 in the 1987 Bond film, The Living Daylights. Eon Productions appeared to freely harvest ideas from the Gardner books. It's shame they never did a proper adaptation, starting with License Renewed.

Tomorrow: Bonus
