Format: Paperback
I'd been unfamiliar with James Bond's appearances in comic strip format, but this excellent and affordable series of books is certainly fixing that. THE JAMES BOND OMNIBUS - VOLUME 002 reprints black and white comic strip adaptations of the Ian Fleming novels and stories On Her Majesty's Secret Service, You Only Live Twice, The Man with The Golden Gun, The Living Daylights, Octopussy, The Hildebrand Rarity, and The Spy Who Loved Me. As with Volume 001, this is a softcover collection, but the cover has been reinforced so it can stand up to more wear and tear than a standard trade paperback. The paper stock is thick and bright, and the art has been reproduced very well.

These strips were originally serialized in The Daily Express in the mid to late `60s, with story adaptations provided by Henry Gammidge and Jim Lawrence. Even though some details are changed, I feel that their adaptations are just as tense as Fleming's original works, seeing as how these three-panel strips slowly peel away the layers of the story. I enjoy reading serialized comic strips in a standard-size trade format, and having up to 12 panels per page is a real plus, as it highlights the writer's ability to break a lengthy story into short installments. Eyestrain might be an issue for some, but if you turn up the lights, you should be okay.

The two artists for this volume have styles that couldn`t be more different. John McLusky provides the art for the first two entries. His style is very clean and sharp, like something you'd see in advertising art of the time.

For the Bond fan or a graphic novels fan, the James Bond Omnibus collection is fun. It is surprising how true to the novels these comic strips were (swearing, sexuality, and racism, oh my!).

By Erin Britton on November 26, 2013
Format: Paperback
The James Bond comic strip originally ran from 1958 to 1983 with Ian Fleming's suave spy appearing in a total of 52 story arcs which were serialised in British daily newspapers. The Bond strips have been reprinted several times with Titan Books currently producing oversized omnibus collections of Bond's most thrilling and dangerous missions.

Of the seven stories collected in The James Bond Omnibus 002, `On Her Majesty's Secret Service' and `You Only Live Twice' were adapted by Henry Gammidge and illustrated by John McLusky while `The Man with the Golden Gun', `The Living Daylights', `Octopussy', `The Hildebrand Rarity' and `The Spy Who Loved Me' were adapted by Jim Lawrence and illustrated by Yaroslav Horak.

The majority, if not all, of the stories collected here will no doubt be familiar due to the film adaptations being bank holiday television staples: In `On Her Majesty's Secret Service' James Bond rails against his fruitless search for Blofeld while in `You Only Live Twice' he is tasked with convincing the head of Japan's secret service to provide information about an informant within the Soviet Union. `The Man with the Golden Gun' sees Bond head to Jamaica to try and assassinate Francisco Scaramanga, while `Octopussy' involves a hunt for a World War Two veteran suspected in a murder plot involving a cache of Nazi gold and `The Living Daylights' features a morose Bond sent to assist Agent 272 escape from East Berlin. `The Hildebrand Rarity' was the only story that I was completely unfamiliar with and, peculiarly, involves Bond helping an American millionaire search for a rare pink and black fish. Finally, in `The Spy Who Loved Me', Bond is dispatched to investigate the mysterious disappearance of Soviet and British submarines.
