JamesBond_Spectrebook

With the Tarzan book I blogged about earlier today, I also got this one. “James Bond – Spectre, The Complete Comic Strip Collection” (Titan Books, 2015), with foreword by John Logan. It features the adventures “Thunderball”, “The Spy Who Loved Me”, “On Her Majesty´s Secret Service” and “You Only Live Twice”. Big format, hardback, 272 pages.

And the pages are not pink (sorry about that).

GoodTimesKult_2_17

This looks like a good read. German publication Good Times Kult! (issue) 2 2017. I love nostalgia publications and this one is probably excellent (same publisher as the Good Times magazine obviously, and that one is awesome).

Nice cover.

Com_5012

Here is an exclusive preview of Commando (issue) 5012, “Launch The Wildcats!” (out in the UK on April 20). Story by McOwan, inside art and cover art by Gordon Livingstone. Previously published as Commando 332 (May 1968) and Commando 1093 (June 1976).

Good cover.

ScienceVieJunior_May-17

French publication Science & Vie Junior (May 2017). And there he is, Gaston, the comic book character that used to make me laugh so hard when I was a kid. I have to say that a magazine like this is a brilliant idea.

Well done.

Asterix_Norway_1

The staying power of Asterix is undeniable. A brand new edition of the classic albums is due in Norway and the first goes out on April 18.

Got to love this.

IllustrerteKlassikere_38

Every now and again it is kind of nice to read a few Classics Illustrated. Seen here is book 38 of a compilation series that is going in Norway (Illustrerte Klassikere), featuring five full adventures and loads of interesting bonus material about authors etc. Published by Egmont in 2012. Hardback, 228 pages.

A Swedish counterpart started out last year but the Norwegians are way ahead and we may never catch up.
