The “Spy vs Spy” series has been a pop culture phenomenon since its establishment in 1960 by Antonio Prohias. Long before “Inspector Gadget”, there was “Spy versus Spy”. This Kit includes: two spy figurines, one white and one black 32-page booklet with 28 “Spy vs Spy” comics from “MAD Magazine”.
Direct from the pages of MAD Magazine, Spy vs. Spy is the visual embodiment of conflict and one-upmanship. Two extremely similar yet opposing spies work to get the best of the other with creative schemes and feats of espionage. Included in the kit are 2 spy figurines and a 32- page book of the best Spy vs. Spy comic strips from MAD Magazine that inspires readers to create their own adventures with their spies.
MAD Magazine is in a class all its own as an iconic humor magazine. Originally launched as a comic book in 1952, it continues to be widely imitated and hugely influential.Antonio Prohias, the late creator of Spy vs. Spy, began the strip in 1960 and continued it until his death, but his creations continue to wage war thanks to award-winning cartoonist Peter Kuper, who took over the strip in 1997.
