007: For King and Country #1

Kicking off 70 years of James Bond, the first issue of 007: For King and Country picks up from the events of the last series and begins with a firefight on the freeway as Bond and the former 003 who he believed dead narrowly make it out alive. Things don't get any easier for Bond when he awakes to discover Myrmidon has succeeded in not only their coup but framing the pair of them as being part of their organization as well leading the pair into hiding where an unlikely source will attempt to pull them back into the fight.

Solid first issue with the action bookended a bored 007 living in hiding with Gwendolyn Gann for much of the comic, getting grouchier day by day, before new trouble comes calling. Thankfully, it seems like the time for hiding is over and we should see plenty of more action with the former 00s fighting to stay alive and stop Myrmidon's even more sinister new plot and keep two steps ahead of MI6 who also want them dead.
