More than two years ago MI6 Confidential set themselves a challenge: to track down an array of 007 paraphernalia that never made it to mainstream media and present it for our readers in an ‘unseen’ edition to the magazine. Today they proudly present the first, but perhaps not last, ‘Unseen’ issue, and it features some rarely viewed artwork, along with detailed analysis and history.
This issue touches on all facets of the Bond franchise, from the concepts and backstory to the Licence Revoked marketing campaign, through script drafts unearthed from the Brosnan era and an array of cut scenes and might-have-beens spanning Bond’s 50 years, to the unmade Bond 17 scheduled to star Timothy Dalton. They even had time to chat to author Steve Cole, who teases his yet unseen ‘Shoot To Kill’.
