Webcomic description

Agent Jake Bone, Whatever-oh Zeta, of Her Majesty's Foreign UK Intelligence secret service. Drunk on vodka and his own self-worth, utterly convinced of a conservative British male's uncontested superiority over all others. Racist, narcissistic, sexist, and just generally rude, Jake Bone is a true hero for our times.

Yes, this is yet another James Bond parody in a world over-crowded with the things. The difference: thoroughness! As much as feasible, this is an UNABRIDGED parody, doing EVERY official film in-depth and unexpurgated. All done Airplane!-style. Enjoy.

Let us pause and appreciate the briefcase gadget as a device. A plot device, I mean. Since it is standard issue, Bond's contact would have one too. Grant double bluffs Bond by stealing another agent's. That's already pretty clever storytelling, and we've yet to see the briefcase's offensive uses!

Panel 2: An obscure W.C. Fields joke that makes very little sense.

Sign that the train setting is losing its novelty as a joke generator: Multiple movie-posters-as-references in the background.

Sign that I am running out of things to say temporarily: The length of this comment.

Grunt assumes the false identity of Captain Dash Daring - incidentally, a name I just might reuse it if another creative project allows for it. Actually, this Captain Dash persona is so strong, it's basically like another character altogether - my favorite one in this entry, a ludicrous British stereotype. Use of a distinct font as a distinct voice is an inelegant technique, perhaps, but a film-as-comic needs this sort of shorthand on occassion.

As we've seen previously in "From Russia With Love," Terence Young is most efficient in moving the pieces along when he needs to. A lot of words - coded spy exchanges, mostly - are exchanged in the Zagreb station. The sound design covers this nonessential dialogue, because the intent is clear already: Red Grant is posing as Bond's ally. Viewers are yet to hear his voice. And, like Hitchcock's famous comment about a bomb under a table, we KNOW the threat Grant poses, while Bond does not. Let the thriller ratchet up another degree!
