There have been quite a few comic book series based on the James Bond character and franchise, but Bond girl Moneypenny has never had her own. Comic book publisher Dynamite has released a “one shot” of their James Bond series featuring Moneypenny in a never-before-told mission in which she discovers plans for an attempted assassination/terrorist plot.
The issue was written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Jacob Edgar, with a street date of Weds., Aug. 30, 2017.
By writer JODY HOUSER (Mother Panic, Faith) and new artist JACOB EDGAR, a never-before-told mission starring MONEYPENNY, friend of JAMES BOND, former MI6 field agent and bodyguard of M! On a ‘routine’ protection mission, Moneypenny discovers a complicated assassination plot that bears a startling resemblance to a terrorist attack from her childhood. Can she call upon her secret agent skills to stop the plot…?
Moneypenny first appeared in Dr. No (1962) and is the private secretary of MI6 director M. In EON-production Bond films, Moneypenny has been played by Lois Maxwell (1962–1985), Caroline Bliss (1987–1989), Samantha Bond (1995–2002) and Naomie Harris.
What do you think? Should Moneypenny be considered for her own book at least a mini-series? Maybe read the one-shot first and see what you think. Some of the pages are pasted below.
