A superspy with a long history begins to realize he shouldn’t remember most of what he does.
Written by Matt Kindt
Art by Wilfredo Torres
There’s this British superspy who has been around for decades, protecting Great Britain – and the rest of the world – from the threat of terrorism.
Obviously, writer Matt Kindt is provoking comparisons to James Bond, and he’s taking an often-discussed theory about the British superspy, that James Bond is not a name but a title given to the best spy the monarchy has. Instead of Bond, though, Kindt begins to relate a tale about Thomas Cord, a secret agent for secret agency MI-X, battling Golden Maze, a group trying to free the world from the confines of our earthly reality.
Readers are introduced to two versions of Cord here – one who gets his brains blown out by his one weakness, a woman – and another modern version tasked with finding an author who may have some insight into Golden Maze. But the author, Philip Verve, knows a bit more than that, including the history of Thomas Cord.
It’s a great concept and Kindt’s introduction to the story – along with beautiful art from Wilfredo Torres – has me excited to see where it goes.
