James Bond: Himeros #1

The latest Bond tale opens with the murder of an inmate at Belmarsh Prison by an elite assassin hired by arms dealer Anton Barnes to keep the secrets of the villain, and his Dutch Ethno-Nationalists organization, safe from the world. Enter James Bond, assigned to protect the last remaining target that could tie Barnes back to the human trafficking ring of the dead inmate.

Bond doesn't see much action in James Bond: Himeros #1 until he tracks down the capable Sarah Richmond at the end of the issue, arriving with roguish style. What we get here is mostly set-up, little more than an opening chapter to a larger story. Sarah is more capable than many Bond Girls, but with a super-assassin on the loose she'll no doubt need 007's help to stay alive.
