Book Review — James Bond: Live and Let Die


James Bond: Live and Let Die by Van Jensen, Ian Fleming, and Kewber Baal (Illustrator) is a graphic novel of Ian Flemming’s Live and Let Die.  Jensen is the author of the Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer series of graphic novels and, by day, a magazine editor.

James Bond novels are different from the movies in both large and small ways.  Bond isn’t Roger Moore; he’s a bit tougher looking and isn’t afraid to shoot a bad guy in the face.  The storyline varies.  Its different but still a bit the same — Less blacksploitation and less drug centered. The novel is more serious and less flashy.  Still, a very good graphic presentation of a classic Cold War Era spy novel.  Well done.
