1993: JAMES BOND JR. Issue 1 (Marvel UK)

All eyes might well have been on MARVEL UK's Transatlantic explorations during 1993 but we shouldn't forget they were still launching new titles aimed at the UK market.  This is one of them, a fortnightly dedicated to the (somewhat ill-advised) JAMES BOND JR. (it was, despite the implications of the title, his nephew) animation/ merchandising cash-generating opportunity.  

The show was nothing to write home about (and seems to have been buried in recent years, presumably deemed an embarrassment to the franchise) but the comic was adequate.  It reprinted material from the twelve-issue US edition which was, actually, virtually a M-UK production and boasted Dan Abnett amongst the talent pool.
