Frank Miller once considered for James Bond comic book project

According to a new article on Comic Book Resources, which analyses comic urban legends, it has been revealed that legendary comic book artist Frank Miller was one in consideration for a James Bond project.

When asked why Miller's "Doctor Strange" work for Marvel Comics was never developed further than house artwork, it is claimed that he was under consideration for a James Bond project, so bowed out of drawing Doc.

The issues involved were released with artist Marshall Rogers in April 1981.

During this time, artist John McLusky and writer Jim Lawrence were working on series five of the 007 serialised newspaper strips published in the Daily Star (UK).

The first American-style comic book featuring James Bond appeared in 1989 with the first part of "Permission To Die". Next, Dark Horse Comics published a run of six new adventures up until 1995
