Having done a superb job in bringing all the original Ian Fleming stories to comic strip format, this series of Omnibus editions moves smoothly towards new horizons with a volume of stories specially written for the medium and an excellent adaptation of Kingsley Amis's Bond novel 'Colonel Sun' with it's tastefully handled but ultimately chilling torture scene featuring an assault on our hero's inner ear with a skewer ( it was MUCH more graphically described in the book!!!). Horak, the artist, really gets into his stride now and the writing is still Flemingesque.
Continues the series of newspaper strips and if they lack that quirkiness that Fleming brought to the character the artist Horak maintains his sperb skill in his depiction. Good production though the strip panels do suffer from this amount of reduction and they, if printed on better quality paper, would have looked and 'read' so much better. Even so, for true fans recommended.
