Yes, Yes, It Is Grayson And James Bond….

It wasn't that much of a jump to make from the preview – and the cover. But today's issue of Grayson goes out and out to make itself as much like James Bond than ever before.

And not the James Bond of the novels, currently being recreated so expertly by Warren Ellis and Jason Masters. But the James Bond of the movies, specifically the Connery and Moore days. Including the ski chase from The Spy Who Loved Me. Complete with classic innuendo.

Does "having it off" translate into Americanese? Basically it's sex. Then there's a certain scene made famous by Ursula Andress from Dr No …

Then Halle Berry 

And recreated more recently by Daniel Craig.

Well, now it's Grayson and "Tony"…

And yes, you get to do the song.

Take it away, Dick. With your best Goldfinger impression…

And the swirly swirly switly silhouettes of naked women holding guns in a very predictable fashion.

We may never get a Grayson/James Bond crossover. But this is far closer than you deserve…
