This volume from Titan sees 2 stories appear in the UK for the first time with one (Doomcrack) being the first story serialised in the Daily Star. The introduction in this volume is from Caroline Bliss who played Miss Moneypenny in "The Living Daylights". Then we have an article about James Bond in American comics (carried on from the previous article in the Titan volume "DeathWing". The first strip we encounter is "The Xanadu Connection", one of the previously unreleased stories in the UK, as is then next story "Shark Bait". The first story to be serialised in The Daily Star is "Doomcrack" with artwork by Harry North. A great collection.
this is basically a collection of cartoon stories originally published in a daily paper. That is not entirely clear from the publisher's blurb. I remain to be convinced that the co-authors and publisher can reasonbly claim Ian Fleming as a co-author: other Bond authors Kingsley Amis (aka Robert Markham), Charlie Higson and Sebastian Faulks did not do so.
Talking about the blurb, I wince at the description of a "recon" mission. Bond would never have talked about "recon" - except perhaps to humour Felix Leiter, as it is an American term. He would have said "recce" - both being short for reconnaissance, or course!
