No Time to Die isn’t the only 007 adventure arriving this autumn as Dynamite Entertainment has also announced the new comic book series James Bond: Himeros from writer Rodney Barnes (Killadelphia) and artist Antonio Fuso.
In JAMES BOND: HIMEROS, Bond must enter the dangerous and sensitive world of sex trafficking. The new series, titled after the Greek god of sexual desire related to Eros (aka Cupid) and Aphrodite, dives into when that desires goes too far and is used for evil. It will take the legendary super-spy to bring justice to those most vulnerable among us.
Billionaire British financier Richard Wilhelm finds himself behind bars, after being charged with trafficking minors to his secluded private island in the South Pacific. Now in custody, his political, personal, and criminal connections to others in high society across the world are in danger of being exposed. Elite arms developer Anton Banes is one of these parties, and he won’t stop at anything to cover his tracks. Including hiring a mysterious assassin with the codename Kino to take out Wilhelm and any evidence.
Which leads to 007 being brought in to figure things out, and even to protect Wilhelm’s right-hand woman Sarah Richmond, with a head full of secrets that everyone on all sides is after. A “Bond girl” like no other, can Sarah be trusted by Bond, and does she have blood on her own hands..?
“There’s an elegance to James Bond that’s timeless,” said writer Rodney Barnes. “He has a unique skill set and approaches the tasks at hand with wit and humor, yet underneath there’s a strong ethical sense that drives him.”
James Bond: Himeros #1 will go on sale in October 2021.
