Can anyone translate?


  1. Yeah WTF!! That is a weird one! I know Lee almost made the cut to do a James Bond movie but not as Bond, and lost out to Joe Don Baker.

  2. It is a 1987 cover of the Swedish comic book "James Bond Agent 007" which was published between 1965 and 1994 (a total of 111 editions).

    The story in that book was part two of "Mannen med den gyllene pistonen" i.e. The Man with the Golden Gun by Fleming.
    According to Swedish sources the actual comic book story was drawn by Yaroslav Horak, but if that applied also to the cover of the same book I don't know. The comic in this case was based on his daily strips in UK (from the 60's) so I wouldn't be surprised if another artist drew the cover.
