Skyfall won’t be hitting theaters until later this fall, but if you’re feeling the need to get a Bond fix, Titan Books has you covered with the third edition of their James Bond Omnibus series. The book is packed with comic strips from the late 1960s and early ’70s when the artwork was being done by Yaroslav Horak for the Daily Express newspaper. In the third edition, seven great story arcs are covered, including the notable Colonel Sun storyline, taken from the first Bond novel written after Ian Fleming’s death.
While the book is nothing more than a collection of black and white strips – some color artwork or facts about the strip and its creators would have been nice – for 007 fans, The James Bond Omnibus 003 is a treat. Reading the stories in a serial format and enjoying Horak’s art can make for an afternoon or two of enjoyable reading.
