Okay, it could be argued Kieron Gillen has always written a James Bond comic.
But I was looking through Kieron Gillen's twitter history to find any James Bond bon mots he may have made over the years before today's announcement he was writing a Bond comic, to discover that he's automatically deleting tweets after a certain period. Which, for anyone travelling to America, might be a handy thing.
So you'll just have to guess at whatever "bond mots" these were in response to.

mine is Emily Blunt.
She could be James Bond, the Bond Girl, the Bond Villain, M, Q and Miss Moneypenny in one perfect movie

But that's okay! Kieron has been tweeting James Bond today…
I mentioned writing a one-off of an Icon. This is it. https://t.co/WlEHDmesEb

But if you can't wait till May (and who can)… how about picking up God Is Dead: Book of Acts: Omega from Bleeding Cool's publisher Avatar Press? Featuring Alestor: Hell's Executioner with artist German Nobile. And what Gillen has described as "basically me doing James Bond in Hell."
…well he's definitely got the wordplay down.
