Much slower paced than it’s immediate predecessors, but much to its benefit as it allows it to play out like a novel.
Any surprise characters?
In chapter 1, no
Like I said, it plays on being long form, chapter 1 is placing Bond and his relationship with OO3
It’s definitely more of a slow burn than some of the other recent runs of the comic. I’m intrigued at where it’s going and 003 seems like an interesting character. Her being Bond’s mentor and the one who trained him in being a 00 is an interest wrinkle.
It was heavily hinted at in the synopsis, but I am rather disappointed at Gwendolyn Gann, the former 003 being seemingly fridged in the first issue. Especially since the author was hyping her up in interviews and when I got to meet him in person at a local con. Probably means she isn’t actually dead, so I’ll take a wait and see approach.
Definitely think that’s a bluff, it does seem like she’ll be the main focus of the story
