James Bond: The History Of The Illustrated 007 Now Available To Pre-Order

Author Alan J. Porter has updated his blog today with the official solicitation copy and front cover design for his upcoming book on 007 in comics, James Bond: The History of the Illustrated 007. According to the publisher's blurb, "for the first time, the complete history of the illustrated James Bond is chronicled," from comic strips to comic books, the whole world over. The blurb even states that, "The cover of the book presents a never-before-seen painting by noted artist Bob Peak who made a significant contribution to the Bond canon's movie poster art," seemingly confirming CBN's story earlier this week touting this concept art as a possible cover design for the book. As I said before, due to its unique and fascinating content, this is easily my most anticipated reference work on Bond in a year jam-packed with them!

Porter's 240-page book is already listed for pre-order on Amazon, with a retail price of $29.99 and a release date of September 25, via Hermes Press.
