mi6 confidential magazine
First conceived in 2007, MI6 Confidential is an unofficial part-works magazine celebrating the phenomenon of James Bond 007 - the longest running movie franchise in the world. Packed with exclusive interviews, insightful features, rare photographs and unique imagery, the magazine explores the rich film canon through to the roots of the character created by Ian Fleming.
MI6 Confidential is a content rich, regularly published, James Bond magazine available exclusively in print. Sold online exclusively via www.mi6confidential.com, the magazine reaches countless fans, enthusiasts and collectors in over 40 countries around the world.
Issues often sell out quickly and the small & dedicated team who craft each issue have come to pride themselves on the collectable nature of the publication, with rare issues sometimes selling for ten-or-more times their cover price on collectable sites and in online auctions. To be sure that you receive the first notification of a new issue, be sure to join our newsletter, or take a look at our annual pre-order offer.
From the first silver screen outing with Dr No in 1962, via unparalleled coverage of the latest film SPECTRE, the 50th anniversary celebrations throughout 2012, and beyond to Bond 25, MI6 Confidential gives readers a unique look behind the scenes of the films with rare photographs, in-depth articles and interviews with the cast and crew. It also explores the wider world of 007 with regular original features covering the literary series, videogames, comics, collecting scene and events from around the world.
In 2017, after ten years of service, MI6 Confidential introduced a new special format: a limited-run 100-page issue of the magazine taking a deep dive into one particular facet of the franchise, rather than the smorgasbord of filmic, literary, comic and gaming features fans have come to expect from a standard issue. The first special issue was contributed by art department veteran Peter Lamont as he shared his memories and never-before printed images and ephemera from the production of Live And Let Die. Specials are designed to be released less regularly but with the same immense attention to detail and production quality readers have come to expect. Where possible specials can be pre-ordered alongside the standard five-magazine subscription that has been running successful since 2013.
With no obligatory up-front subscription fees or annual club membership charges, MI6 Confidential is the professionally created James Bond magazine that is available exclusively in print. In the absence of an official fan club and only a small handful of active websites dedicated to James Bond, MI6 Confidential is a must for any real 007 enthusiast.
