After going to see “Skyfall”, I was in the mood for a spy story. That was when I remembered buying this John Byrne mini-series. The main character is a James Bond type who no longer works for MI-6. But when the organization needs someone to do a job that cannot be traced back to them, he takes the mission. A scientist is working on a new rocket system but things go wrong when a Russian spy and a possible defection are added to the mix. Byrne seems to have patterned his character after the Sean Connery/Daniel Craig Bond. High adventure, desert car races with one of the driver’s replaced by a killer, and a very good final issue that takes place in Russia. Byrne’s art is a perfect fit for the story. I am already looking forward to reading the sequel that will be out next year.
