Most of James Bond's English-language comic life took place in the pages of syndicated British newspaper strips. These began their run under the approval of Ian Fleming himself, and were, at first, adaptations of his vision of the character. Indeed, the first comic Bond appeared in the late 50s, well before the first film Bond. Pictured at top right is the iconic comic Bond, by the original artist on the series, John McLusky.
Fortunately for English speakers not in Britain, these comics were collected in the early part of the 21st century. As of 2006, this series of graphic novels is ongoing, helpfully rescuing the original comic Bond from the comparative obscurity of mid-20th century British newspapers.
Note that this version of Bond, though the most prolific, is not the one with which most American fans might be familiar. Marvel and DC both ran adaptations of various James Bond films. Because some James Bond films share the same name as novels, it can be confusing understanding which version of the character is being portrayed in a given comic. However, this is made simple by the following rule of thumb: as of 2006, neither DC nor Marvel have ever used the literary version of the character.
