007 #2

Beginning with a funeral followed by a wake of fellow 00 members of MI6, 007 #2 continues to flesh out who the recently deceased 003 Gwendolyn Gann was. The early sequences offer more flashes of the agent's past before Bond has a conversation with M about what 003 was working on for M16 investigating a private organization recruiting top-level intelligence assets from around the world working for an agency without any allegiances drawn on a map.

The last half of the issue deals with Bond turning down taking over the case only to be attacked outside his apartment and abducted by mercenaries from Myrmidon who appear to want to know just how much Bond knows about their plans. A solid issue that underscores the talents of 007, teases us with the toughness of the Myrmidon agents, and sets Bond up all alone on a fight for revenge.
