Alan J Porter's book James Bond: The History of the Illustrated 007 published.

The book consist of 240 pages and is written by Alan J Porter and is published in paperback by Hermes Press. ISBN 19-32563-18-0

The fully illustrated book will chronicle the story behind Bond’s comics adventures around the world, from British newspaper strips to original stories produced for markets such as Sweden and Chile, to Japanese manga, and of course the various American series and movie adaptations.

It will also be taking a look at the various Bond spoofs, 007’s influence on comics art in general, and hopefully lining up interviews with some of the creators who have added to Bond’s story over the years.

Before Bond became world famous with his movie series, the character was the subject of successful English newspaper strips and later in comic books. With the explosion of Bond on the screen the character and his exploits become even more popular in comic strip and comic book versions all over the world. James Bond: The History of the Illustrated 007 007 examines it all, and covers Bond’s newspaper strip and comic book appearances from the 1950s to the present. The release of this all-new history is timed to coincide with James Bond’s newest movie appearance and is sure to be a must for all Bond fans.

The cover of the book presents a never-before-seen painting by noted artist Bob Peak who made a significant contribution to the Bond canon’s movie poster art.

The editor of FSWL (Anders Frejdh) is one of the contributors to this book.
