Showcase #43

In 1963, to capitalize on the recent success of the first James Bond movie, Dr. No, DC printed its adaptation. It wasn't very successful which surprised the people at DC because they thought Bond would be a no brainer as a comic book. The art by Norman J. Nodel wasn't very good and it felt rushed like they were trying to get the book on the stands before the hype went away. The cover by Bob Brown is pretty good though. If they had gotten somebody like Carmine Infantino or Gil Kane to do the book, it probably would have turned out a lot better. Maybe someday DC or Marvel will publish Bond comics again. It probably won't happen but a Bond geek can dream, can't he?
