Bond on Bond, by Sir Roger Moore
Michael O’Mara Books

While there have been many actors who have taken on the coveted role of James Bond, Sir Roger Moore is undoubtedly the one with the most panache and charisma. To celebrate the 007 film franchise’s wonderful heritage, Roger Moore has written a book that features all the Bond movies, along with a wonderfully witty account of his own involvement in them. From the girls to the villains, from the cars to the cocktails, from the gadgets to the sets, this beautiful book is illustrated with many iconic images from all the films plus many previously unseen shots. This is the ultimate James Bond book, written by the ultimate James Bond, with all the affection and good humour he brought to the role.

VARGR (6 issues)
Written by: Warren Ellis
Illustrated by: Jason Masters

After a mission of vengeance in Helsinki, James Bond returns to London and assumes the workload of a fallen 00 Section agent. His new mission takes him to Berlin, presumably to break up an agile drug-trafficking operation. But Bond has no idea of the forces gathered in secret against him, the full scope of an operation that’s much scarier and more lethal than he could possibly imagine. Berlin is about to catch fire… and James Bond is trapped inside.

VARGR is also available as a beautifully designed collected edition in a hardcover book format, which includes extra sketches showing character development and alternative cover designs.

EIDOLON (6 issue)
Written by: Warren Ellis
Illustrated by: Jason Masters

After World War Two, army intelligence groups created ghost cells called “stay-behinds” across Europe in the event of a Warsaw Pact surge. EIDOLON is the story of a SPECTRE stay-behind structure – ghost cells of SPECTRE loyalists acting as sleepers until the time is right for a SPECTRE reformation and resurgence. The time is now.

HAMMERHEAD (6 issues)
Written by: Andy Diggle
Illustrated by: Luca Casalanguida

Bond is assigned to hunt down and eliminate Kraken, a radical anti-capitalist who has targeted Britain’s newly-upgraded nuclear arsenal. But all is not as it seems. Hidden forces are plotting to rebuild the faded glory of the once-mighty British Empire, and retake by force what was consigned to history. 007 is a cog in their deadly machine – but is he an agent of change, or an agent of the status quo? Loyalties will be broken, allegiances challenged. But in an ever-changing world, there’s one man you can rely on: Bond. James Bond.
