Product Description

Review

"...a more ruthless, undilued interpretation of 007, and is a must for Bond aficionados." -- Brentwood Gazette 23 Feb 2005, reviews by Matt Adams

About the Author

Ian Fleming is the world-famous novelist and creator of James Bond. Henry Gammidge worked in close collaboration with artist John McClusky - the pair adapted eleven of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels. John McLusky was originally a Second World War artist for Bomber Command. As well as the Bond adaptations, McClusky also drew comic strips for various publications, featuring the likes of Laurel & Hardy and Pink Panther.

This was the 4th volume released by Titan Books concerning the newspaper strip stories from the Daily Express which originally first saw print in the early 1960's.
The stories, in newspaper strip, included are "Goldfinger", "Risico", "From A View To A Kill", "For Your Eyes Only", and "Thunderball" (which was curtailed rather abruptly after a dispute between the owner of The Daily Express and Ian Fleming).
Also included is an introduction by Shirley Eaton, Bond In Books (part 4), Rarities showing some differences in panels from different countries and "Behind Enemy Lines" a Russian perspective of James Bond.
This volume is a thing of beauty and is highly recommended.

Bond fans can't lose! 24 Feb 2005
By DARBY KERN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In July of 1987 I was visiting Washington D.C. when I stumbled upon a copy of THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS comic strip, published by Titan Books. Being a Bond fan I snapped it up as quick as I could. The next day I went back and bought the OCTOPUSSY collection. I'd known that these strips existed but I had no idea that they had been collected in published form (other than THE ILLUSTRATED JAMES BOND, 007 released by The James Bond Fan Club). I found a copy of CASINO ROYALE on Ebay. Then, for over a decade, we had no new releases from Titan.

In the last year Titan has graciously resumed publishing these classic strips. My first purchase was the release of ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE. I will post a review there soon. Just yesterday I received GOLDFINGER- and I cannot be more pleased!

The adaptations by Henry Gammidge, with art by John McLusky are fantastic. I've read and reread these novels but some aspects of the story resonate so much better than Fleming's amazing novels.

McLusky had, by this time, really hit his stride with the strip, doing work that was light years ahead of when he began with CASINO ROYALE (which is still worth a peek!). His mastery of shadow and light comes through in some great atmospheric ways.

My introduction to the strips were through Yaroslav Horak's art, which has a distinct, Gil Kane-like style. When I first saw McLusky's work in CASINO ROYALE it seemed very basic in comparison. But now I actually prefer it- and I that's no slight on Horak!

GOLDFINGER also includes the adaptations of the short stories, FOR YOUR EYES ONLY, RISICO, FROM A VIEW TO A KILL and the abreviated THUNDERBALL. Along with THE ILLUSTRATED JAMES BOND, 007, I have every Fleming story adapted except MOONRAKER. The upcoming release of CASINO ROYALE is 96 pages compared to the previous 60 page release. maybe it will finally be included.

For my money, GOLDFINGER may be the most satisfying book in the lot. It is 128 pages of James Bond fun. The text articles are all welcome material as well. Well done Titan Books. Feel free to continue publishing the non-Fleming stories as well!
Simply Awesome!! 1 Sep 2010

I am a huge James Bond fan, so this will be a little biased. I am a fan of the books, movies, lifestyle, character, just about everything bond and have been since childhood. WWJD to me means "what would james do?".

The GN follows the Fleming novels' plot and is in classic comic strip sketching. Due to this type of sketching a lot of detail is lost compared to say .... Alan Moore. But it does not detract from the feel or story in any kind of way. I highly recommend reading the full novel before this as your mind will fill in the gaps. Goldfinger included the For Your Eyes Only short stories as well as a short version of Thunderball.

I finished it in one sitting and see myself going back to it soon. Enjoy!
