OddJob Makes His Comic Debut and Will Make Girls Swoon!

Ian Fleming's Oddjob will make his debut in Dynamite's James Bond titles this month starting with the new 007 James Bond title from Greg Pak and Marc Laming. Their first arc sends 007 to Singapore to secure a smuggled case that Oddjob wants just as well. Pak knows that Oddjob is a villain that all remember even with the fact that heís kind of a stereotype with little personality or a history. He says she was inspired by something Maxine Hong Kingston wrote in her book "Tripmaster Monkey". In it her lead Chinese-American main character went on a rant about Oddjob saying, "A face as big as Oddjob's should star on the Cinerama screen for the audience to fall in love with, for girls to kiss, for the nation to cherish, for me to learn how to hold my face. Take seven pictures of a face, take twelve, twenty of any face, hold it up there; you will fall in love with it." Pak is of Asian descent himself and in the films he has made he cast a lot of Asian-American actors and created Amadeus Cho when he was working on the Hulk. So his Oddjob is just as dangerous and lethal but will get a background. In the arc he and Bond could be friends or enemies depending on the situation. Pakís run on the book will use elements of the initial Warren Ellis run on Bond. Ellis's Bond was the character from the books but Pak was a huge fan of the Roger Moore lighter era. Singapore is the setting for the opening arc so that both Bond and Oddjob would be in unfamiliar territory facing off against the new terrorist organization ORU. The newly formed group has killed thousands in a series of attacks without announcing their philosophy or goals. Since the Dynamite version of Bond has shown him in different eras fans have speculated that Bond is officially a codename and not a character but Pak isnít getting in the middle of all that.

It all begins with JAMES BOND 007 #1 which is currently scheduled to ship on New Comic Wednesday-110718 with a $3.99 cover price and four standard variant covers. As always it will be "1st Day Sale"  priced at 25% OFF ($2.99!) on the 7th and 15% OFF for the rest of its first week of release ($3.39!)-while supplies last!
