Jimmy’s Bastards is a James Bond parody, which is always fun. Jimmy Regent has a lot of sex, and has sired a lot of children, all of whom he has ignored. Now they’re out to get him. The fact that they all seem to be about his age is a fact to insignificant to dwell upon. Meanwhile, the government has heard something about gender fluid and, while nobody knows that the means, the spymasters would like Jimmy to figure out if it’s a threat. He’s assigned to work with a female agent who doesn’t want to bed him, is mildly disgusted by him, and actually has a brain. Jimmy takes it all in stride, even when gender fluid turns out to be something that turns men into women and vice versa. Which at least gives people the opportunity to learn what it feels like when the private parts of the opposite gender are fiddled with. There’s a bit of social conscience buried in the parody. Jimmy likes to complain about political correctness while his new partner likes to complain about Jimmy’s cavalier attitude toward the women he obsessively beds. It’s Jimmy’s refusal to deal with the consequences of being a sexual rogue that eventually drives the plot. But mostly the plot mixes action with craziness and a good bit of humor. I don’t know if the fairly thin storyline can last for another volume without collapsing, but in this volume at least, the story generates a lot of laughs.
