Working for the UK-based newspaper The Daily Express, writer Jim Lawrence and artist Yaroslav Horak began adapting Ian Fleming’s Bond novels into black and white, daily comic strips in 1966. After six successful adaptations including The Man with the Golden Gun and Octopussy and with the blessing of the Fleming trust, Lawrence and Horak began writing original stories starring the suave spy. Jim Lawrence’s plotting and dialogue are perfect for Bond, and the stories stand up to Fleming's own. Being presented originally as a daily strip, Lawrence does a stellar job of bringing the audience up to speed with each strip while not weighing the story down with gawdy exposition. Horak seems to revel in his duties as the artist drawing the world’s most famous spy. From the action to the exotic locales to the seductive women, Horak defines the spy-thriller chic of the '60s and '70s that Bond has come to embody.
