Our Score: 5 out of 5 stars
Usually with volumized books, you would start at volume 1, or 001 in this case. I recently had “The James Bond Omnibus 003″ show up at my door to review. I was not familiar with this series but loved it, read review here. Nonetheless, I tracked down the first volume in the series and in fact it is actually better than the later. James Bond has always held a special place in my heart. I though have been a bigger fan of the earlier films than the recent ones from Pierce Bronson onwards. If you are a fan of 007, this series is a must own.
“Omnibus 001” in case you didn’t known is a collection of comics featuring our special agent 007 from Ian Fleming. This volume contains eleven of these original daily comic strips. The following is the reason why this triumphs over “Omnibus 003”. This volume includes the very well known stories of: “Casino Royale”, “Live and Let Die”, “Moonraker”, “Diamonds Are Forever”, “From Russia with Love”, “Dr. No”, “Goldfinger”, “From a View to a Kill”, “For Your Eyes Only” and “Thunderball”. If you are a fan of these amazing films, you are going to love a chance to read them in comic format.
Titan Books is really known for treating the world’s most famous secret agent 007 very well. They have released many great collections and these “Omnibus” books are just a great item to own for all fans of 007. As I mentioned in the review for “Omnibus 003”, the paper in the book feels like an old newspaper so it really makes it feels authentic. Like i mentioned before I hope there are more volumes in the work for this series because I can never get enough of Ian Fleming and his crafty suave secret agent.
