Showcase #43 Mar/April 1963
Artist: Norman Nodel
The first American comic book to feature James Bond. Originally drawn for the Classics Illustrated series but the company suspended publishing. Published as part of the British Classics Illustrated series (#158A) and the European Detective series (#6). The version featured here is the one reprinted in DC's Showcase series to take advantage of the new James Bond movie . The story was censored, deleting all racial skin color and dialogue thought to be demeaning. This is also the first DC Silver Age movie adaptation. The illustrated cover is different from previous editions and features Doctor No in a radiation bubble suit holding a gun on Bond, who is at the controls of the jamming station. The inside front cover has photos from the film. The inside back cover has brief biographies of Bond and Fleming. The 32-page comic follows the movie script and most of the characters are drawn to resemble their screen counterparts.
