When you think of James Bond, there’s two different facets that come to mind: the charming, handsome gentleman-spy, and the brutally efficient man of action. Reconciling those two sides of 007 are crucial to any great Bond story—but for writer Andy Diggle, they’re especially important for his upcoming comic miniseries Hammerhead.
Spinning out of Warren Ellis’ excellent Dynamite Comics series, Hammerhead sees Bond facing a moral dilemma of his own when he goes on the hunt for Kraken, an anti-capitalist force who’s got plans for Britain’s nuclear arsenal. But when Bond learns of a far more nefarious threat closer to home, can he trust the country he’s sworn loyalty to? Can he be the killer they need him to be, in an era when the lines between ally and enemy are blurrier than ever?
