MAD Magazine's iconic Spy vs Spy comic strip--now in full color!
One of the most celebrated comic strips in MAD's history has a deceptively simple concept: twin spies, one clad in black and the other in white, outdoing each other in elaborately stupid plots to achieve the other's demise. Now, for the first time, MAD is colorizing the best of the original Spy vs Spy adventures and presenting these classic strips with a new modern look.
Bonus material created exclusively for this book includes new interpretations of the Spy characters by acclaimed artists--including Frank Miller, comic writer-artist and blockbuster filmmaker, and Nathan Sawaya, internationally recognized Lego artist--and a biography in comic-strip form of Spy vs Spy creator, Antonio Prohias, by award-wining MAD artist Sergio Aragones.
Additional special features include dynamic charts and graphs to deconstruct and quantify which spy has "won" the most through the comic strip's volatile history, the most popular weapons and ploys used in the strip, means of death, and more, plus a beautifully printed endpaper featuring David Anson Russo's interactive maze, where readers can play as either white or black spy.

||The Editors of MAD Magazine
||MAD is America's longest running and best-selling magazine with that name. For over 60 years MAD has been synonymous for "excellence in low standards." With its grinning, gapped-toothed idiot mascot, Alfred E Neuman "gracing" its front cover, MAD satirizes politics, celebrities, sports and more in its print and digital editions, and also on its daily humor blog (which is updated daily, hence the term "daily humor blog"). MAD's most legendarily moronic features include Spy vs. Spy, The Fold-in, "A MAD Look at..," Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions and its iconic TV and movie parodies. MAD's contributors - widely known as "Usual Gang of Idiots" - include such notable names Al Jaffee, Sergio Aragones, Peter Kuper, and Tim Carvell - although they wisely prefer to downplay their association with the magazine.
