Dynamite Entertainment has announced the worldwide rights to the James Bond comic book license. The world's greatest spy will star not only new adaptations of Ian Fleming's original novels, but new canonical adventures as well — including Bond's life prior to his first official mission.

Dynamite's press release specifies their first comic will detail Bond's...

...early years and origins, establishing who he was prior to Casino Royale, the first novel (and film), and showing how he gained the reputation that allowed his cocky introduction to come to life.

Other than that, all we know if that the timeframe for the comics is essentially 2015; no other details have been announced.
