Why read it?: Come on… Warren Ellis writing James Bond?!!! That should be enough but it’s more than just that, Ellis presents a Bond that would never make it to film, a Bond who cuts enemies fingers off with a spade, a bond who suffers due to governmental restrictions and international politics; yet it’s still like Bond, just Bond with a contemporary edge. Also, unlike a lot of Dynamite books, the art ain’t half bad.
