Novelist and comic book writer Blake Northcott tossed her extremely warm Canadian hat into the ring to become the next James Bond writer with a pitch that already has fans clamoring for more!

Northcott’s pitch was simple, highlighting the features that make James Bond, well, 007. She explained “Bond will be hard-drinking, womanizing, charming and deadly.” She also said she would include “fast cars, hot Bond girls and crazy villains.”

Fans were quick to call for Northcott to be the next James Bond writer:

And Northcott is no stranger to writing an action-adventure spy series. She’s currently penning [easyazon_link identifier=”B079DYH5C4″ locale=”US” tag=”boundingintocomics-20″]Executive Assistant: Iris[/easyazon_link] for Aspen Comics alongside artist Donny Tran.

Northcott could also bring a significant following to a James Bond book. The number of fans who are already clamoring for her to write it is already apparent, but Northcott can also appeal to folks who might not be traditional comic book readers. Northcott has found great success self-publishing and she recently wrapped up a KickStarter campaign for her upcoming novel, The North Valley Grimoire. She raised over $73,000 Canadian dollars from 1,010 backers.

I would definitely be interested in seeing Blake Northcott be given a chance at James Bond. Dynamite Comics will you take a chance?

As Blake says, “We’ll see what the future holds.”
