    I imagine playing an iconic role like Bond can be fairly stressful when people keep asking you about the role, especially when people were throwing negative comments at him immediately when he was cast for having blonde hair, so I can understand some of Craig's frustration. As for the sequel, do you think they will do some version of On Her Majesty's Secret Service?

    That would be nice. I really liked Lazenby as Bond, its a shame that he had a crappy agent

    What did ever happen with Lazenby? Was the studio just not a fan of his take?

    Nah, his agent persuaded him that Bond wasn't a good career move and that Bond was basically done, so he left the role.

    So I just read Vargr. I think that actually, the entire new Bond seems to be a lot darker, not just in Hammerhead. I enjoyed it and expect Eidolon to be equally good. So many variant covers, which were very nice as bonus material at the back (HC), plus two extras not included which are just B & W versions of a couple.

    Yeah, I think I was definitely surprised how brutal it got in parts, though I enjoyed the hell out of it. I think Eidolon is an excellent follow up to Vargr and I'm excited for the last issue of that arc to be out next month. How are you feeling about the Felix mini-series that will be out in January?

    I've finished Vargr and I'm up to issue 8 on Eidolon, I have issues 9 and 11, but 10 hasn't arrived yet :P The comic book Bond is definitely more brutal, and I like it. This bond doesn't just put the enemies down, he puts them downs and finishes them.

    I'm pretty excited for the Felix series as I don't think that he has been explored enough previously, although whether or not it works remains to be seen. Do you know if the comic books are supposed to be set after all of the films? Based on Eidolon it sounds like SPECTRE have already been met at this point and obviously Felix has had his shark incident.

    The Warren Ellis stuff, at least, isn't set anywhere near any movies. It's a commission from the rights holder to adapt the James Bond of the books. Hence, as well, less gadgets and suaveness and more playing it by ear and getting the job done. And, well, the brutality that sticks.

    My understanding is that it is basically set after the books, but in the modern era. I assume a somewhat modernized version of the books occurred, and now its this series. Felix's injuries imply that some sort of Live and Let Die (book) scenario happened. Of course, I kinda want to see modernized but still more book loyal versions of some of the stories now, in comic format...

    I believe that they are releasing a graphic novel of Casino Royale either at the end of this month or early December that I assume will be a modernized version of the novel.

    I just started this series like last week but I'm up to #11 on the main series. I'm absolutely loving it. I did enjoy VARGR but I think I'm liking Eidolon more. Not quite sure if I'll check out Hammerhead but I'm definitely going to try Felix's book in January. I agree with you all about the brutal Bond, love seeing him being absolutely ruthless.

    I agree that I've been enjoying Eidolon slightly more than VARGR, though I have loved both the arcs. If you have been enjoying the main series, I would give Hammerhead a shot. I don't think it's as enjoyable as the main series but I still think it's pretty good. It contains another great brutal Bond moment.

    Definitely give Hammerhead a go! I will look into the Casino Royale adaptation too... What I would really like, is to see popular Bond villains get a book, dive a bit into how they became those villains. I seriously doubt that will happen though, given the small audience :P

    Well I never thought they would give Felix his own mini, so it's always a possibly. I think I'm always leary of comics based mainly around villains because I've been burned in the past by a lot of them. That said, I'm currently enjoying the Carnage series that is out, so who knows.

    Well I'm new to comics so I have the advantage of naivety. I would love to delve deeper into the likes of Blofeld, Oddjob, Scaramanga, Onatopp, May Day and Jaws.
