Comic publisher Dynamite Entertainment has signed a deal with the Fleming estate to launch a series of comics based around the British virtual superhero, with the first set of new James Bond books set to appear next year.
The deal acquired by Dynamite includes the rights to create comics, graphic novels and digital adventures, and is said to cover events in the spy's early career -- before he made his full debut in Casino Royale. We may see him starting off in a lowly admin role, perhaps.
DC, Marvel and Dark Horse have all had goes at doing short Bond comic runs in the past, with this latest deal letting Dynamite adapt existing tales and create all-new stories based around his ongoing attempts to hinder the evil. [Hollywood Reporter]
