We’re back with even more of the John Lee Adventures with special appearances by James Bond!  Yes, the chemistry between Bond and Lee has been holding this series up through its somewhat rocky narrative, but with two more issues to look at, perhaps we’ll finally understand what the bad guys are up to and why our heroes should care!  After all, it took A View to a Kill like an hour and a half to get to the part of the movie that ACTUALLY matters, so the least we can do is cut the comic book a bit of slack on its pacing.  Do they finally kick things into high gear or at least give us a solid glimpse as to where this series will be going?  Let’s find out!!

Issue 5 (March 2019)

The issue begins with Moneypenny bringing the case with the golden dragon back to MI6 headquarters where she explains that this is a SPECIAL golden dragon with a long history to it.  I checked, and The Golden Dragon of Goreyeo doesn’t seem to be a real thing, but in any case, the thing must be worth a lot of money which is why ORU was son intent on getting it.  Good thing they didn’t get it and it’s now in Britain’s hands along with the Koh-i-Noor Diamond and other priceless artifacts from other cultures!  Unfortunately (or I guess fortunately depending on your point of view), the MI6 scientists open the case to find nothing more than a stack of bricks and shattered dreams.

“I swear to Christ; if their master plan is to open a spy-themed high-end restaurant together…”     “I bet they’d call it Live and Let Fry.”     “Or maybe Casino Royale with Cheese.”

We’re back with even more of The Spy Who Adapted Me as we continue our journey following James Bond and his best buddy John Lee, AKA the new Oddjob, as they try to out spy each other in pursuit of a Russian man with an exploding luggage case!  So far Mr. Lee has been the main reason to read this book as he is ridiculously well-realized and utterly charming to boot, but Bond himself is no slouch and is always ready to impress when the moment calls for it!  Will these issues continue the fun and exciting adventures of our favorite new bromance, or have we already seen everything they’ve got to offer?  Let’s find out!!

Issue 3 (January 2019)

The issue begins with M from MI6 talking with a Mr. Park from Blue House which is basically South Korea’s White House.  It turns out that Mr. Lee, the new Oddjob that was introduced in the first issue, is in fact a South Korean agent and M has scheduled this little meeting so that they can get on the same page so that Bond and Lee don’t end up killing each other and losing Russian Guy in the process.  It’s too bad that M didn’t have the foresight to do this BEFORE Bond was jumping out of an airplane in Australian, but I guess hindsight is 20/20.
