What If James Bond Was A Chimpanzee?
By Joe Glass
That seems to be what the new comic Kickstarter from Grainne McEntee and Matt Rooke seems to be asking.
On Kickstarter now to raise funds for the first in the series of Bubbles O'Seven: Simian Agent, it's probably best to allow the creators to describe the series for themselves.
Introducing Bubbles O'Seven, simian star of this first 16-page mini-comic in an explosive new series.His mission, to track down and neutralise the rogue threat of shadowy organisation, SpIWIT, is his greatest challenge to date. But is that mission as clear cut as it seems?Dr O is the first antagonist in our series, born out of a botched experiment by the SIS in an effort to weaponise animals, the project known as Species Intelligence Weapon Integrated Technology (SpIWIT). Bubbles O'Seven was the closest the project came to being a success and he is now tasked with bringing home – or eliminating – the rogue subjects of said project, amongst which Dr. O is one of many.Dr O is a disgruntled Orangutan who has been "castrated" by the removal of his cheekpads, leading to a squeaky Ook voice and a penchant for overcompensating by exercising his intelligence in other more evil areas.But while Bubbles is in the employ of the very organisation that created him, we are left wondering, where do his loyalties truly lie?
I'd never really wondered what a simian secret agent would be like, but I have to admit I am keen to see now.
