Despite being by a relatively new comic book writer, who has had great trouble learning his trade – see DC’s current Green Arrow series for his efforts, where he has only recently got the hang of it – this is a readable volume, and, if it wasn’t for the slightly too-cartoony artwork, would probably have been an excellent one. As it is, it is just a very good one.
In the text pages at the back of the hardcover edition, he tells us that he grew up with Roger Moore’s Bond, and there is a slight hint of that here, but not enough to detract from the entertainment. I grew up with Connery’s Bond, but even as child, I could see flaws in the films, and it wasn’t until “Goldeneye” that I thought that the films had become as good as the original novels, and Daniel Craig’s “Casino Royale” was the best of all the films for me.
As well as Fleming’s novels, Bond has had a long career as a newspaper strip – reprinted by Titan Books, if you are interested; and Warren Ellis’s volumes that launched this series was a masterful blend of the newspaper strip and the Fleming character. This volume, as I mentioned above, has got its own style (and the odd hint of Steranko in the art also), but is still an above-average comic, and I look forward to more.

In sum, BLACK BOX was a fun read with an interesting twist at the end.
