James Bond 007 #12

James Bond 007 #12 brings the comic series to a close with Bond, Lee, and Agent K taking on Goldfinger in the series finale. Goldfinger's plan is finally revealed. Much like his movie counterpart, the plan involves destabilizing the world economy to increase the wealth of his own considerable gold supply.

While he is able to execute, at least part, of his plan, and momentarily allude the formidable trio, eventually Bond is able to track down the villain for a reckoning.

The series began to drag for me in its second-half, and I think the storyline could have been condensed by a few issues to improve the overall pace, but James Bond 007 #12 works as a proper ending to both wrap-up the Goldfinger storyline and say farewell to both Lee and K. Considering they both survive the brainwashing and battles they were put through, and end up on good terms with 007, you wonder if one or both may eventually return in another Bond series from Dynamite Entertainment. Time will tell.
