5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual place to start., 17 Oct. 2012

This review is from: James Bond 007: The Man with the Golden Gun (Paperback)
When Titan Books started their reprint series of the James Bond stories from the Daily Express strips they started with this volume which is quite unusual.
Instead of starting at the start of the Ian Fleming books they have started at the end of the Fleming range and therefore they felt it necessary to open this volume with a 'previously...' page which recounts what happened at the end of "You Only Live Twice".
After that we get "The Man With The Golden Gun" which is swiftly followed by "The Living Daylights".
Proceeding all of this is an introduction to the volume by Lucy Fleming and then there is the first part of a five part series called "Bond In Books".
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tense, no-nonsense thrills, 15 Sept. 2008

This review is from: James Bond 007: The Man with the Golden Gun (Paperback)
These comic strips provide an almost perfect comnbination of the deadly thrills of Fleming and the style and glamour of the classic Bond movies. Jim Lawrence combines extreme economy and pure storytelling, creating entertainingly straight-forward, no-messing-around narratives. The art from Yaroslav Horak is simply fantastic, angular and dramatic. His version of 007 is arguably the best ever version of the character. The Living Daylights is a tense little take, and The Man with the Golden Gun is a classic. It's intense climax even outdoes that of the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bond, James Bond, 4 Jan. 2012
This review is from: James Bond 007: The Man with the Golden Gun (Paperback)
One of a re-issue series (initially available in the 80s) by Books, Titan Books of their Bond, James Bond newspaper comic strip reprints (originally published by the Express, Daily Express in the 60s). This edition features the title story and The Living Daylights, written by Fleming, Ian Fleming and adapted by Lawrence, Jim Lawrence. Although the first artist in the series was McLusky, John McLusky (whose style closely resembled the Bond films), I prefer the more angular, edgy style of Horak, Yaroslav Horak which chimes well with the tension in the stories. Also includes a comic strip checklist for collectors.

4.0 out of 5 stars brought back my childhood, 2 April 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: James Bond 007: The Man with the Golden Gun (Paperback)
I grew up reading the Horak Bond strips every day in the back of the Daily Express. I'm a comics and comic-strip fan, always have been. I even remember cutting out the Bond strips and collecting them in a scrap book. Now I don't have to! Titan have done it for me, and I'm very grateful. Love the scratchy artwork, love the stories .. this is a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The HORAK magic, 14 Mar. 2008
By 
Shobha Varma "carnatic musician" (Trichur, Kerala, INDIA-680005) - See all my reviews
This review is from: James Bond 007: The Man with the Golden Gun (Paperback)
I have read almost all the James Bond, comic strips, which used to appear in a Malayalam Daily, "Malayala Manorama". Unfortunately now they have stopped all kinds of Strips. I too, like the earlier review, used to cut out the srips and paste them carefully in a book. But, they have all faded. But Horak's works are my favourite among the lot. His,'You Only Live Twice' is a 'masterpiece'. I don't see this book in your collection.
Shobha Varma.
