James BondJames Bond is coming to Dynamite Entertainment, thanks to a new a partnership Ian Fleming Publications Ltd.

The agreement gives Dynamite the worldwide rights to publish comics, digital comics and graphic novels starring agent 007, the star of 14 novels by Fleming, which have been adapted into 25 films over more than 50 years.

Even with all of that material available for adaptation, Dynamite plans to tell new Bond tales, set during the agent’s early years. These stories will draw inspiration from Felming’s work, and take place before the events of the first Bond novle, 1953’s Casino Royale. Other familiar faces of Bond’s mytho – including criminal masterminds, hired henchmen, Bond Girls and secret service allies – will make appearances, along with some all-new characters.

Corinne Turner, Managing Director of Ian Fleming Publications said “It’s over sixty years since the publication of Casino Royale, and now more than ever it’s an exciting time to be a Bond fan. We’re thrilled that 007 will be revisiting the world of comics, as Fleming’s novels have a long and successful history in this medium, ever since they began to be published as newspaper comic strips in the late fifties. Dynamite are the perfect partners to take on the challenge of continuing this legacy, and we are very much looking forward to working with them.”

“James Bond is one of the greatest cultural icons in the world. His author and creator, Ian Fleming, was not only in touch with popular culture in his time, but also saw ahead of his time, and his written work will outlive us all,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. Dynamite plans to launch its first James Bond comic books in 2015.
