James Bond 007 (newspaper strip reprints)   (1987)
Search for 'James Bond 007 (newspaper strip reprints)' on eBay

Publisher: Titan Books

Publication Date: June 1987 - July 1990

Country: United States

Language: English

The original adaptations of the Ian Fleming novels were first printed by the Daily Express starting in 1958. One-by-one, the novels were turned into comic strips and ran daily. A brief "hiccup" in the Fleming/Express relationship did occur in 1962, however, after Fleming sold the rights to just the short story, "The Living Daylights", to the Sunday Times. Though this impacted the then-running strip, Thunderball, the relationship got back on track in 1964 and continued until 1977.

These strips then all but disappeared until the James Bond 007 Fan Club (US) somehow reprinted Diamonds Are Forever, From Russia With Love, and Dr. No in 1981. Further republication halted after this one-off until 1987.

By then, Titan Books had unambiguously secured the reprint rights, and began to issue a new volume each year for four years. These reprints comprise what is now sometimes called, unofficially, "Titan Books, volume 1".

"Volume 1" is the subject of the title you are now reading about. It is closely related to, and easily confused with, the so-called "Volume 2", which began in February of 2004. Though books from both volumes may have the same name (for instance, there's a Casino Royale in both volumes), they do not have the same content. All four books in this volume have fewer stories in each book, and virtually no extra features.

For this reason, this volume may be considered the "stripped down" volume.
