These comic strips first appeared in The Express newspaper in the 1950s as a daily three-panelled strip by John McLusky and were the first time Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels were adapted into visual storytelling for the masses.  Titan have recently re-mastered the comic strips and have released them in new large format collections, SPECTRE, DR NO and GOLDFINGER.

The closing date for entries is Sunday 18th June 2017.  Please review the terms and conditions carefully before entering the competition and good luck!
