James Bond and Garth Ennis Align for
007's 70th Anniversary & 10th With Dynamite - Debuts January

October 10, Mt. Laurel, NJ: 
Dynamite announces the ultimate team-up with MI6’s super spy and one of the greatest comics writers of 007's native United Kingdom, Garth Ennis. The new series starts this coming January, with the intention to shake and stir the character in a thrilling tale for fans.

The year 2023 has marked the incredible 70th anniversary of Ian Fleming's historic character. 2024 will kick off Dynamite's 10th year publishing comics starring James Bond. With over 20 graphic novels worth of stories on the shelves, Dynamite targeted the perfect creative partner to celebrate these milestones in classy, brutal and typical Bond style. No name fit more than one of the most celebrated and influential writers from the British Isles and a longtime Dynamite partner — Garth Ennis (The Boys, Preacher).

"When I took a look at the Bond of the Fleming novels, as opposed to the larger-than-life figure from the movies, I saw a great deal more potential — a much darker character in a more interesting world," said writer Garth Ennis.

This new story titled "Your Cold, Cold Heart" finds Bond dealing with a truly disturbing silent killer. A relic of the Cold War, the deadly compound Stalvoda — roughly meaning "steel water" in Russian — is thought to have achieved the impossible – the holy grail of arms manufacturers: is it possible to kill an enemy without inflicting any visible damage and leaving no trace whatsoever? Right as the weapon is perfected, though, it escapes the lab. MI6 naturally assigns their top operative to the hunt.

In addition to appearances from fan-favorites such as M, Q, Moneypenny, and Felix Leiter, Ennis is also introducing readers to new character Archie Tryon. Now an eccentric, old veteran who enjoys strolls into the sea, the man brought the earlier formula out of the Soviet Union in the first place. Bond will go to him and get more than he bargained for, perhaps seeing a glimpse of his own future, and the first clues to unravelling a conspiracy that traces back deep into the heart of MI6.

Ennis is joined for the series by artist Rapha Lobosco, who has previously taken on 007 with Benjamin Percy's Black Box and an issue of Aleš Kot's The Body. With other credits including Dynamite's two crossovers with Tim Seeley's Hack/Slash, Lobosco is the perfect match here with a great sense of character and storytelling.

The series will also feature stunning covers by the Eisner Award-winning Dave Johnson, known for his contributions to 100 Bullets, Detective Comics, Deadpool, Punisher, and more.

Consistently regarded as one of the top authors in comics, Garth Ennis has over three decades of experience in the medium. With early breakout tenures on titles like Hellblazer, The Demon, and the U.K.'s industry leading Judge Dredd, Ennis created original characters and stories like the epic Preacher and affable Hitman. With Marvel, he is most prominently known to many as the definitive writer of the Punisher. Beginning at WildStorm and then moving to Dynamite, Ennis is also known for the nearly 100-issue tapestry of The Boys, currently being adapted as a juggernaut franchise for Amazon's Prime.

In addition to the new series by Ennis, Dynamite Entertainment and Ian Fleming Publications invite fans to pick up the latest issues from writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson's For King and Country, or from the catalog of hardcover and paperback graphic novel collections, such as the adaptation of Casino Royale, the very first novel and perfect for the anniversary.

 is solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ November 2023 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in January 2023. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies of the issue with their local comic book retailers. It will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more!
