James Bond 007 #2

After his encounter with the new Oddjob (an enemy agent named John Lee), Bond gets a brief history lesson from MI6 (which infers that this version of 007 never lived through the events of Goldfinger) before being sent back into the field to complete his mission to track down the Russian and retrieve the briefcase before it falls into the clutches of the terrorist of ORU (with strict orders not to get preoccupied with Lee again).

In Indonesia Bond runs into both the Russian and John Lee, who has his own orders to question the Russian. Once again neither man gets his hands on the Russian as the pair momentarily call a truce to take out the number of mindless soldiers courageous enough to be cannon fodder for them before the rivalry heats up once more.

The rival agent angle works well as James Bond 007 #2 also teases a femme fatale as part of the Russian's entourage. Here's something for Bond to sink his teeth into. Worth a look.
