One of the constants in the James Bond series has been the ever faithful Moneypenny. Now, as Dynamite expands on the Bond Universe, Jody Houser (Faith) and artist Jacob Edgar are creating the first ever James Bond: Monneypenny one-shot.
Hitting stores August 30th, James Bond: Moneypenny focuses on what was intended to be a ‘routine’ protection mission for Moneypenny, until she uncovers a complicated assassination plot that bears a striking and unsettling resemblance to a tragic, and life-changing terrorist attack from her childhood. In the face of imminent danger, will Moneypenny be able summon her secret agent skills to stop the impending plot before it’s too late?
Writer Jody Houser says, “As someone who came to James Bond late (much to the horror of many of my friends), the idea that I’d get to play in that world is amazing. Writing a character like Moneypenny and exploring what makes her different from the more familiar MI6 operative has been a blast. In this story, we’ll get a look at exactly how she operates and some of the events that made her the woman she is.”
Moneypenny first appeared alongside James Bond in Ian Fleming’s very first novel, Casino Royale, published in 1953. As the personal secretary to M, Bond’s boss at MI6, she would go on to play a small role in almost all of Ian Fleming’s Bond novels, but did not receive much character development until 2006’s spin-off series, The Moneypenny Diaries. In 2015, Dynamite published Warren Ellis’ James Bond: Eidolon series, in which Moneypenney is featured as a major character. James Bond: Moneypenny marks the first time the character has received a dedicated story in comic book form!
James Bond: Moneypenny will be solicited in the June 2017 Previews catalog and slated for release in August.
