James Bond 007 #6

After being outsmarted by John Lee who was able to make off with the golden statue under 007's nose, Bond plays catch-up and go after the agent who now both governments want brought in. As for Lee, despite his initial failure at turning his former comrade back from the clutches of ORU, he continues in his quest believing he can save the soul of Aria now brainwashed by Goldfinger's secret organization.

Bond and Lee will reconnect at the secret ORU lab where 007 gets a good look at just what ORU is capable of. And despite the beliefs that there is some good left in his former friend, the new Oddjob looks like he may get a crash course in ORU's power.

Plenty of action here. Despite some questions about the choices in the re-imagined version of Bond by writer Greg Pak, I'm continuing to enjoy the back-and-forth between Bond and Lee and I'll be curious to see if Lee's trust in Aria is well-founded or if he's in for some reconditioning of his own. Worth a look.
