Comic Cover Artwork



Cover artwork for issue 14 of the Danish comic  "James Bond Agent 007  -Spionen fra Ost". Artist unknown. Does anyone know what the signature is? Thanks to Soeren who traded this comic with me a long time ago, still love it.

Nice cover Peter, any chance of you posting scans of a few of the interior pages?

The artist is the great Jordi Penalva. His illustrations was used for the cover on many of the danish comic books from 1965, when issue 1 was published and onwards. Penalva also illustrated many covers for war-story comic books.

Looks like The Man From U.N.C.L.E. TV series may have influenced this cover. Bond is holding what looks like a "T.H.U.S.H. Rifle (M-3 IR Carbine) which were never mentioned in the books or seen in the 007 films.

Correction: T.H.R.U.S.H.
