I like this ad for Victory Games’ James Bond RPG a lot more than the one I posted back in April.It’s still a little sloppy, but you can’t go wrong with Odd Job comic book artwork. Man, I really wish there was a quarterly Bond comic by the best and brightest in the comics biz. This ad’s from the second issue of the Jack of Hearts mini from 1984.
Have you ever read the mid 80s Jack of Hearts series from Marvel? It’s incredibly weird. I don’t know if I’ve ever read a four issue comic that bounces around nearly as much as that one, which kicks off on Earth with Nick Fury hanging around and winds up in the stars with aliens explaining Jack’s history to him. Anyway, I picked the issues up at a small comic show in a hotel near my house and didn’t enjoy it a ton, but they did offer up some great comic ads. I wanted to run this James Bond one during my Digging Double Oh Seven series, but I only got to scanning recently. I’ve never been an RPG fan, but I think I could be convinced to give this one a try given the opportunity.
