Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Super Spy is 52 interwoven short stories about cyanide, pen-guns, heartbreak and betrayal. Each story follows the life of a spy during World War II.

Spanning the globe from Spain to France and Germany, this book takes the reader on a tour of the everyday life of the spy. From the small lies and deceptions to the larger secrets that everyone hides, Super Spy reveals the nature of espionage and how an individual can be lost and also find redemption.

A children's book is something more than it seems...
A woman swims the English Channel to deliver a deadly secret...
A German spy desperately seeks escape for herself and her daughter...
And a spy continues to serve his country even beyond death.

Review:

"With Kindt's sparse but evocative artwork ably assisting his complex overarching story, Super Spy deserves to be read at least a couple of times. (Grade: A-)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"[A] rip-roarin' yarn....Kindt's simple-but-stark art style suits a dark story taking place mostly in shadows....Final word: A killer spy thriller." People Magazine

Review:

"Super Spy is the rare web comic that utilizes the format to its advantages. With sepia tones and small, concise panels, Super Spy looks like lost negatives from a spy camera." IGN.com
