Young Bond : Silverfin The Graphic Novel by Charlie Higson

It's James Bond's first day at Eton, and already he's met his first enemy. This is the start of an adventure that will take him from the school playing fields to the remote shores of Loch Silverfin and a terrifying discovery that threatens to unleash a new breed of warfare.


'A page-turning adventure that will get the hairs standing up on the back of your neck' - Sunday Express'Good, gritty and funny ... Very clever, Bond, very clever indeed' - Daily Mail Would have made Ian Fleming proud Daily Telegraph More action, more demented crime and more flesh-crawling deaths than ever before -- - Observer James Bond's action adventures are perfect for a graphic novel, with more AAAAAGHH!, KER-BLOOSH! SMAKK and other onomatopoeia than you can shake a martini glass at. Scotland on Sunday This graphic novel is a feast for the eyes as well as the imagination. Fulham Gazette'

Their successes included 'Saturday Live', the 'Harry Enfield Television Programme', 'The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer', 'Shooting Stars', 'Randall and Hopkirk, Deceased', the film 'Suite 16', 'Swiss Toni' and 'The Fast Show'.

Questions for Charlie Higson:

What was your inspiration for The Enemy?

George Romero’s early zombie films – Night of the Living Dead & Dawn of the Dead mostly. But there are bits of Lord of the Rings, fairy tales and the tales of the Greek heroes.

Which character was the most fun to write?

Small Sam and the Kid. They’re a good double act.

Are any of your characters based on real people?

I use my own kids and their friends for inspiration, but there is no one character
that is based on one particular person.

What was the last film that blew you away?

Pan’s Labyrinth was amazing. Special effects and fantasy are used for more than just pretty pictures.

Who would you choose to be if you could be a celebrity for the day?

That idea is just too scary to contemplate. My God, imagine !

Charlie Higson loves what could be THE debut of 2011, Undead by Kirsty McKay: 'A kick-ass teen-action zombie-fest. Fast, furious, freaky, funny and seriously sick. Oh, and did I mention it kicks ass ?'
