issue 61, volume 15, sep 2021

The premiere of Thunderball is often thought of as the peak of Bondmania – but it wasn’t all downhill from there. The early 1980s were a rich time for the Bond world. Roger Moore and John Glen would start their successful partnership of three films in 1981, Bond would go head-to-head at the box office with Never Say Never Again, 007-themed tie ins were perhaps at an all-time high – with computer games becoming a new medium for the franchise – and John Gardner was about to reinvigorate the literary Bond with the publication of the first continuation novel in over a decade.

This issue celebrates early ‘80s Bond in all his guises, from the dawn of the computer game industry, through a presidential endorsement and box office blockbusters, to the end of the long era of Bond comic strips in UK newspapers.
