Synopses & Reviews
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.

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...
"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
"[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
"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
