New Yuki 7 Trailer

Oh my God, this is too awesome!  Kevin Dart, the artist behind Seductive Espionage: The World of Yuki 7 and its upcoming follow-up Yuki 7: Looks That Kill and Stephane Coedel, his collaborator on the Yuki 7 faux trailer that promoted the first book, have teamed up again on a new trailer to accompany the new volume.  And it's amazing!  This is an exceedingly cool, totally loving tibute to the sexy Sixties James Bond knock-offs that fuelled the Eurospy and Asiaspy genres.  It's chock-full of direct homages to all sorts of classics, beginning and ending with nods to Deadlier Than the Male (the best Eurospy movie of all - review here) and also encompassing references to Modesty BlaiseBlack Tight KillersOSS 117: Terror in Tokyo (maybe; that one might be a coincidence) and more.  Pure bliss!  Watch it, soak it up, live it.  It's fantastic, and I can't wait for the new book!  Thanks to David at Permission To Kill for calling my attention to this video.
