James Bond is set to return to the big screen next year, and Dynamite Entertainment will mark the event with the release of James Bond in ‘Reflections of Death,’ a hardcover anthology of stories from an all-star lineup of creators.

The 128-page book features more than 20 creators — including Andy Diggle, Mark Russell and Luca Casalanguida — contributing “case files” of various Bond missions being investigated by Moneypenny as she works towards freeing herself from an unfortunate kidnap situation.

Vita Ayala and Danny Lore, the writers of the upcoming James Bond ongoing series set to launch in December, will contribute the framing story of the collection centering around Moneypenny.

Other creators involved in the collection include Greg Pak, Gail Simone, Benjamin Percy, Jordi Perez, Robert Carey, Eoin Marron and Kewber Baal. The cover comes from British illustrator Fay Dalton, whose work has previously appeared in the Folio Society’s editions of Ian Fleming’s Bond novels Casino Royale, From Russia With Love and Moonraker.

“We're incredibly fortunate to work with so many talented creators, and of course they all want to write one of the most crucial characters in modern fiction!," Dynamite CEO and publisher Nick Barrucci said Tuesday in a statement. "Just in time for the new movie, for fans to enjoy a bounty of Bond, too!"

James Bond in ‘Reflections of Death’ is set to be released in February.
