Warren Ellis and Jason Masters have succeeded in creating a Bond graphic novel that has everything that makes James Bond a popular icon - the charm, the action, the humor, an attractive and compelling heroine and a villain worthy of Bond’s time. Originally, I had my doubts. It isn’t easy to pack so much in a limited number of pages. Eidolon blew me away. The graphic style is a perfect match for the cinematic action sequences and the well developed story is pure Bond. Eidolon has it all - fights, car chases, explosions and just a hint of sex.
If you like Bond, you will definitely enjoy Ellis and Masters’s graphic version of the eponymous hero and his adventures. James Bond V.2 Eidolon is best suited to teen and adult fans of the series.
I received a copy of James Bond V.2 Eidolon from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
James Bond is trapped in Los Angeles with a MI6 agent under fire and a foreign intelligence service trying to put them both in bags... and possibly more than one foreign intelligence service. And things may not be any safer in Britain, with bodies dropping and ghosts moving in the political mist...
