Instant Bond Gratification

See it, buy it, download it, read it. While in your underwear.

That’s absolutely one of the things I like the most about reading magazines on my iPad. To that I could add pricing, availability, and a few more things, but today it was just the simple fact that I was immediately able to get my hands on the latest issue of the UK edition of GQ, because of the Bond coverage — and if you don’t why it was important for me to get this issue, then you obviously don’t see what I write on Facebook.

Not only did I get the issue this morning, while I was lying in my futon, drinking coffee, but it only cost me 350 yen — if I could have found the issue somewhere in Tokyo (and that’s absolutely an if) it would have cost 4-5 times that.

This is also an excuse to post all six covers of the issue, each featuring a Bond.

Skyfall opens in Japan on December 1.
