007 #1

A new volume of James Bond begins with a mission gone wrong. Although Bond isn't responsible for the bad intel that led to the death of a key asset and nearly got Bond killed as well, returning to MI6 bruised, battered, and shot, he discovers the blame is being laid at his feet making the world's most famous spy think twice about his life.

While on suspension, a voice from the past reaches out. An old mentor (and lover?), the former 003 Gwendolyn Gann, reaches out to Bond with a proposition. 007 #1 offers an interesting wrinkle to Bond's history in suggesting the primary influence to him as an agent was a woman. We're given a handful of images from his memory suggesting there might be more to delve into. But, is it already too late? Can Bond solve the clues left behind, and how might all this relate to the shadowy operatives testing him at the beginning of the issue?
