Ian Fleming's literary debut of British Secret Service agent 007 is stylishly adapted to the sequential art medium by Van Jensen and Denis Calero in the official James Bond: Casino Royal graphic novel. Sent to a French casino in Royale-les-Eaux, Bond aims to eliminate the threat of the deadly Le Chiffre by bankrupting the ruthless SMERSH operative at the baccarat table. However, when the luck of the draw favors his enemy, 007 becomes the target of assassins and torturers in a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse.
A Note From the Publisher
The debut title in Dynamite Entertainment's graphic novel adaptations of the original Ian Fleming James Bond 007 novels, set in the period of the original work. Casino Royale has never been adapted to the comic book medium prior to the Dynamite edition. Corinne Turner, Managing Director of Ian Fleming Publications, says, "It's over sixty years since the publication of Casino Royale, and now more than ever it's an exciting time to be a Bond fan. We're thrilled that 007 will be revisiting the world of comics, as Fleming's novels have a long and successful history in this medium. Dynamite are the perfect partners to take on the challenge of continuing this legacy."
