When you're doing a running 007 series, of course, you'll eventually come up against the same problem the movie producers did: you'll run out of original Fleming stories to adapt. That's no problem; it looks like the Swedish writers and cartoonists had a blast creating all-new Bond adventures in addition to adapting the old standbys. In excited anticipation for the new Casino Royale movie opening I've been eagerly looking at the gorgeous covers of this series and day-dreaming about the all-new Bond adventures between their glossy, thrilling covers.
But since I don't read Swedish, I kinda had to speculate what some of the stories were about. Here's my best guesses to what stories you'd find behind some of the most intriguing covers of the series:
Two of Ian Fleming's most beloved literary creations meet in the ultimate crossover: "Chitty-Chitty-Kiss-Kiss-Bang-Bang!" (Also, voodoo, apparently.)
Bond resorts to peeping-tom voyeurism in the little-known Fleming classic "A View to a Thrill!"
Step inside the private world of an off-hours 007 as we thrill to the adventures of "James Bond, Ham Radio Enthusiast!"
007 battles against the deadly schemes of the evil Baron Oscar von Meier, intent on taking over the world through tainted hot dogs and then to escape in his balloon-powered Weinermobile, in this rare Bond story entitled "My Baloney Has a First Name, It's D-E-A-T-H!"
Special guest-writer Stan Lee scripts the adventures of Bond in his ultimate crossover with the Marvel Universe: "If This Be My Forbush!"
Not to be left out, DC Comics issues an exciting crossover between Bond and Batman, and for some unknown contractual reason, Smokey and the Bandit.
When MI6's economy drives place a limit on Bond's corporate Amex, he must escape paying his exorbitant hotel bill in "Goldencard!"
Fan-favorite Pussy Galore returns in a way youand Bondnever expected...as a real cat! It's a thrilling adventure of plastic surgery gone wrong in "Dr. Bo-tox!"
And whenever a Bond actor leaves the franchise, there's extensive media speculation on who will be the next 007. Here's the comics' suggestions for three replacement Bond actors:
Lee van Cleef!
