What's New
The last ten major changes to the site.
  • 01/21/2016 - A good decade before the previous inductee was working, Sandra of the Secret Service, aka Sandra McLane, was a woman pulled into the cloak and dagger work by accident who found she really loved it. Please welcome this comic book heroine from 1935!

  • 01/17/2016 - A very enjoyable and quite different comicbook spy joins the compendium today. From the late 40s comes a female agent who can more than take care of herself. Please welcome Starr Flagg, Undercover Girl.

  • 01/16/2016 - Another short run comic spy joins the group today. Jerry Malone, aka Counterspy has two adventures to relate. These are in the Public Domain.

  • 01/15/2016 - On this Ides of January, I have added to the three (so far) comics that are in the Public Domain the actual pages of the comics. If you go to a character's page, currently for Miss Espionage, Blitz Buster, and Black Friday, and then click on any of the issue images, you get a larger view of the cover/first page and below it, the ability to read each of the pages that I have found. Please enjoy. Note - for those comics NOT in the Public Domain, no such viewing is possible.

  • 01/01/2016 - Happy New Year! I wish to all those who visit my site a wonderful year to come filled with great new spy series to enjoy. A great start is this addition to the compendium, Velvet Templeton, an incredible agent who may have retired from the field but is still no one to mess with. It is an ongoing comic series from Image Comics with the first two story arcs released in trade paperback format. I loved it!

  • 12/31/2015 - I end this 2015 with a fantastic addition to the compendium. There are regrettably only two books in it but each book is unique and each is a joy to read. Please welcome and, when you get the chance, please pick up and read, The Cellar.

  • 12/28/2015 - While reading books as fast as family outings allow, I have also had fun with several comic books spy series that people have written to me about. Two of these comic series, each with two issues apiece, are Miss Espionage and Blitz Buster. Both of these are in the public domain and can be downloaded and read at Digital Comic Museum, a great site to visit.

  • 12/26/2015 - Happy Boxing Day, y'all. I have taken an unusual twist to my regular type of spy series with a small (2 item) addition that is only comic book. From 1940, please welcome Black Friday, King of spies.

  • 12/12/2015 - Thanks to a fellow spy-fi fan, and frequent contributor, I learned that a Raquel Welch movie from the mid 60's was really part of a planned series and came from the second, unfinished book therein. Please welcome the extremely alluring and dangerous Fathom.

  • 11/15/2015 - Just before the new James Bond movie, Spectre came out, I received an email talking about the watches various Bonds have worn. I share the address with you because it was a hoot to read. Check out Watches Of Bond.

More What's New!


     Say the word SPY to most people and they will respond with James Bond, with good reason as he is the best known of all fictional spies. With 20+ blockbuster movies over the last 40+ years, along with the standard movie hype, virtually the entire world knows about 007 and his License To Kill.

     Of course, James Bond is by no means the only spy in the world of fiction, just the best known. Who are the rest? Who has his or her own license to kill, thrill, or chill. How do these agents stack up against each other? Who would you want beside you in a car chase, in a knife fight, in a dark alley, or beneath the covers?

     This site is dedicated to the many, many men and women who, at least in fiction, have defended our freedoms against all forms of enemies, foreign and domestic. Well, granted a few of them were just in it for the money and many were only after the excitement, and sex played a huge role in the motivation of more than a few. But still, their actions helped not only preserve our way of life (on paper) but also brought us, the readers, many hours of escapism and vicarious pleasure.

     So, who are these people that I have slaved so diligently to present to you? They are the men and women of spy-fi about whom there is a series. Single-book characters need not apply. There has to be at least two books. Two's the minimum but the more the merrier.

     Moreover, I have limited the collection to those series who have operated at least some since the end of the Second World War, known in my own head as the "Bond-period". I know there are many good series that went on before but so far I have only collected the post-WWII series. Also, I have kept the series confined to the English language. If it wasn't put into English so I can read it, I haven't worried about it.

     Each spy has his or her own page. Click on the "Characters" button to go to a listing page. Click on the letter the character's last name starts with (or a more common moniker like "Death Merchant" if appropriate). That will take one step further into the labrynth. Finally, select the character's name from the list and, voila!

     Have fun!!
