    It had Sean Connery taking back his classic role to finish up his story.

No, it was just Connery doing a film that became a standalone, after changing his mind about doing a few more films. It's just a one off imaginary tale.

    This is because the history of 007 is secretive, the previous Bond just retired and there was only one Bond at a time. References were made over time to each Bond being the new guy.

What references are these? So each Bond got married and had his wife killed? Not likely. At the start of "For Your Eyes Only", Bond visits his wife's grave before killing Blofeld. In "License To Kill", his wife's death is mentioned.

    In "Die Another Day" Bond was suspended not replaced.

And he was also the same Bond that Connery, Lazenby, Moore and Dalton were before him.

    The point you make is that yes all the old characters retired with younger characters taking their place along with their code names. The old Ms. Moneypenny told the Brosnan Bond she too was retiring. In the next film a new young Mr. Moneypenny took her place.

You're confusing actors with characters. Older actors such as Lois Maxwell and Desmond Llewelyn retired since they were getting on in years and didn't want to do anymore. But the characters were the same. Samantha Bond was the Moneypenny in all four Bronson films. She's not in "Casino Royale" or "Quantum Of Solice". In the case of M, one actor died and they opted to go with a new M after he had been replaced by another actor being the same M that Lee was.

    True, but I doubt it would make much of a difference.

Every little bit helps.



        I think there is more than enough distribution available but the single issue paper format just doesn't quite work for today.


        By what criteria do you base that on?

    Amazon.com and other big online distributors.

How does Amazon disprove that single issue comics don't work?
