Andy Diggle, the writer who defined Green Arrow’s origins, swung through Hell’s Kitchen with Daredevil and co-created The Losers has now turned his sights to Britain’s top secret agent, OO7. Diggle and artist Luca Casalanguida will be the next creative team on Dynamite’s new James Bond comic series. Picking up after Warren Ellis / Jason Masters’ 12-issue run will be James Bond: Hammerhead, a six issue mini-series premiering in October. The new issue will include covers by Francesco Francavilla, Robert Hack and Ron Salas.
In Hammerhead #1, Bond is assigned to hunt down and eliminate Kraken, a radical anti-capitalist who has targeted Britain’s newly-upgraded nuclear arsenal. But all is not as it seems. Hidden forces are plotting to rebuild the faded glory of the once-mighty British Empire, and retake by force what was consigned to history. 007 is a cog in their deadly machine – but is he an agent of change, or an agent of the status quo? Loyalties will be broken, allegiances challenged. But in an ever-changing world, there’s one man you can rely on: Bond. James Bond.
