James Bond's Moneypenny Gets Her Own Comic
We all know Moneypenny as M's secretary from the hit James Bond movies, but her character is about to take on a major role.Dynamite Comics wants to alter the character's perception by creating a single issue comic book where Moneypenny portrays an action hero rather than the secretary that James Bond flirts with before he goes out on a major mission. The comic will be titled James Bond: Moneypenny, where she'll be re-imagined into a personal bodyguard, every bit as kickass as 007 himself, and where we'll get to dive deeper into the character's back story beyond M's office.
This isn't the first time Ian Fleming's estate approved a Moneypenny adventure. The character starred in a trilogy of novels that was released between 2005 and 2008. The novels were written by Samantha Weinberg, writing under the name Kate Westbrook.
James Bond: Moneypenny is scheduled to hit shelves, August 30.
