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 humour magazine, founded by editor Harvey Kurtzman and publisher William Gaines in 1952. Originally launched as a comic book, it was widely imitated and hugely influential, affecting satirical media and the cultural landscape of the 20th century.
