James Bond 007 #1The first issue of Dynamite Entertainment’s new series James Bond 007 sends the the British secret agent to Singapore to snatch an important package headed for the terrorist organization ORU. The issue starts out with an extended action sequence involving trouble with the exchange, none of which involves Bond, before finding our hero at the casino ready to jump on the survivor of the altercation.

Unfortunately for Bond, he isn’t the only one after the case. Rivals include a group of armed mercenaries and a mysterious new adversary with a familiar bowler hat who holds his own against 007 in the comic’s other extended fight sequence (but not at the tables). Bond is forced to report back failure to Moneypenny, but the situation remains fluid with plenty of unanswered questions.

Archie Meets Batman '66 #4 comic reviewThe Bat-villains reign of terror in Riverdale continues as the Joker attempts to brainwash Jughead (a process that turns out to be harder than the Clown Prince of Crime expected), and Catwoman, under the guise of Miss Kitka (in a nice nod to 1966’s Batman: The Movie), wins the hearts of the high school boys (although she is startled by the sudden appearance of Batgirl and Robin). Now the pair will just to have to fight their way through the rest of the school to get their hands on the felonious feline.

We still don’t get an appearance of Batman, but Bruce Wayne finally arrives in town to attend the gala at the estate of Hiram Lodge where he discovers not only the Siren swaying the adults under her spell but also the town being turned over to the Joker, the Riddler, the Penguin, and Catwoman.

The Wild Storm #18

The Wild Storm #18 comic reviewWith open war between Skywatch and I.O. all but certain at this point, tensions continue to rise and sides will be chosen. For John Lynch that means another throwdown with an enhanced human. For Henry Bendix that means readying himself to put his weapons into action and slave them to his commands. And for Angela Spica that means accepting an offer from Jenny Mei Sparks and helping to form the backbone of an Authority. It looks like Angie’s former pals will have to get along without her.
