Super Spy: The Lost Dossiers: The Lost Dossiers
"Clever and formally audacious." -- Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter "Kindt's fluid outlines, thick swatches of color fill-in, sleek figures, and predominant subdued duotone coloring effectively conjure the ambiguous living hell that crushes the characters' zeal while it forces them to go on until they're stabbed, knifed, poisoned, or shot. [Super Spy] rivals the power of the most complex and serious spy novels and films."--Booklist (starred review) on Super Spy "Matt Kindt's work on SUPER SPY blows my mind. The elegance of his art, juxtaposed with his rich character work and complex narrative -- is nothing short of genius. The Spy genre is so well traveled, that sometimes it feels like everything's been done before. But Matt Kindt's SUPER SPY proves that something new is always possible; if you unleash your passion, vision, and talent. Read SUPER SPY! Read 2 SISTERS! Read PISTOLWHIP! Buy Matt's art! I have.
