Time Life Updates Bond Magazine to Commemorate Roger Moore

Finally! A magazine with Moore on the cover!

Originally published in 2012 to coincide with the release of SkyfallSkyfall and the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise, it was available as both a 112 page magazine and a hard back book. Somehow I ended up with both. The magazine was reissued in 2015 to include SpectreSpectre. I no longer have a copy of that one, but I believe that some of the 50th anniversary pages were removed and the 2 SpectreSpectre pages added.

The 2017 Edition opens with a 9 page tribute to Moore (including this classic 2008 article by Entertainment Weekly) but with The mysteries of Ian Fleming, Imposters, and Teasing Mr. Bond sections all gone, the latest issue is down to just 96 pages.

The heart of the magazine, The Reel History, remains the same in all Editions, except of course that the 2012 version does not include SpectreSpectre, and the Hard back version has slightly larger photos in places due to the extra room:

Finally, the back cover now features all seven Roger Moore's James Bond 007 film posters:
