Bond. James Bond.
This week’s episode of The Comics Alternative is special. Gwen and Derek devote their entire show to the the James Bond comics that have been coming out from Dynamite Entertainment for the past few years. They begin the show by sharing some of their own experiences with the James Bond franchise and how much it was a part of their childhoods. Then they get into the core of the show, discussing the eight James Bond trades, along with the recent six-issue The Body, that have been released since 2016. While they are unable to talk in detail about all of the works — after all, there’s a lot to cover — they nonetheless provide a broad overview of the various elements, themes, and styles that define Dynamite’s James Bond, plunging into deeper readings whenever possible. The various works they cover, along with the creators and years of trade publication, include:
In which Chris and Scott ride Soarin’, Scott has deja vu “all over again”, Chris almost gets his head lobbed off by some kid’s lightsabre, an EPIC taco salad is eaten, and The Freaks take you INSIDE A REAL WALT DISNEY WORLD BATHROOM! AWESOME!!!
Then, on the way home, The Freaks have a calm, measured discussion on the current state of customer service in America. Get ready for some PRIME GRIPE!
