If you are a James Bond fan and have read all Bond novels by Ian Fleming, here's an exciting news for you. The English spy will appear in a first-time-ever on-going comic series.

The comic series will be written by acclaimed graphic novel author Warren Ellis of RED fame and the artwork will be handled by Jason Masters (Guardians of the Galaxy). The comics will be published by Dynamite.

The comics will be based on the Bond as portrayed in Fleming's original novels and Ellis is excited about it.

"Ian Fleming's James Bond is an icon, and it's a delight to tell visual narratives with the original, brutal, damaged Bond of the books," he says in a statement.



The comics will be called James Bond 007 and the first story, ‘VAGAR' will follow Bond tracking down the killer of a fellow 00 agent.
