Dark Horse Comics brings you a mystery-thriller comic about a secret organization that’s developed the perfect spy which is Spy Superb in its first issue.

So whatever happens if you take Loid Forger who got sent to the western country on a mission, which is actually a “mission” to begin with, gets mixed mashed by some enemies that he recognizes, and Anya goes out with Bond predicting the future of when’s he’ll come back home, you get this comic out of next manga volume. What I don’t get about the whole thing is that the protagonist is chasing out some other spies as if he calls himself a spy, or calls him the “useful idiot” according to the comic description. But this is like the opposite version of Spy X Family, to begin with. The comic is created by Matt Kindt, Matt is a Harvey Award-winning and New York Times Best-Selling writer and artist of the many mystery comics and graphic novels that he ever created. Even he claimed himself that he’s been making comics all his life and has been doing it full-time as a “real” job since 2003. And ended by saying that his job is the best. Imagine if any other comic artist would come up with a usual biography about themselves and end the sentence as in “Thank you for supporting me, I love you guys, you’re the best!” etc, etc.

The front cover of this comic from what I see is some paper wrap to place the comic issue inside, and inside is the most closed comic book cover in comic book history. There you have the protagonist who faces up so close to the canvas, did Matt have any trouble figuring out a plan to draw a front cover? He just literally drew a man’s face out of some contemporary art that he saw at an art museum. And he colored the whole cover art in oil painting, there’s not much more to say.

How do you start a mystery-thriller story? The most fucked up moments of the series, second to none. It starts where a dead man is placed on the back of the car, unnoticed that there’s a dead body inside the trunk of the car, and I believe they’re placing the used cars to see, until some guy who bought the car and discovered the corpse inside the trunk. Anyway, the first that you’re witnessing when you start reading the comic is that Matt has colored the comic in watercolor, and many other comic artists have been coloring those ever since I met some Chinese artists at comic con in New York who created a webtoon that was colored this way. If you’re interested in having your comic colored in watercolor, you’re gonna need this, because this comic is a rare sight as you’re driving a car for the first time.

The story is some comedic mystery-thriller comic about some spy who gives zero fucks about the missions that are assigned with his perfect physical specimen, smarter than anyone else, master of disguise, fluent in every language, genius tactician, and he’s nonexistent because Spy Superb is a mystery to everyone who tells the tale. But all hope goes to some useful idiot named Jay Bartholomew the third who looks like Chapo Guzman and started a new life and identity. He talks about some vintage sci-fi comic that he read, like a nerd, crashed someone’s window to look for his phone, and had a lack of survival skills that he literally survived that lucky.

I don’t get it, is he actually a spy or some lucky degenerate motherfucker? Maybe the other agents chose him because they didn’t do their jobs very well and stated that this guy is very useful to cheat death many times in his own life. And the following pages, back and forth, the comic is just giving you flashbacks of many spies going through missions and training, until the end of the issue, the agents are trying to look like fools and have one of these four scatterbrained dumbasses whose chess champion, a poetry major, a video game addict, and a failed author offers them a job.

You might think that this story is kind of like Spy X Family or Spies in Disguise on Disney, The Interview, or any other million spy titles on the face of this planet. But no, this comic exists on another stupid verse like Donald Trump. I just thought that this spy comic is actually talking about some spy who’s really savage as if you’re playing Goldeneye 007 on Nintendo 64, and the player is no other than some lucky degenerate bastard who loves to talk about sci-fi comics. And what I really like about the back of the cover is that Matt included the receipt of his shopping list which is a bunch of codes of many numbers that you could possibly see. It’s like that episode when Anya created some kind of code after watching a tv show, and then some idiot just cracked the code thinking that some woman has a crush on him, and waited for her to come, but never came. It’s heartbreaking, but it just happens as a prank from a toddler. But I really like it, I’m looking forward to reading more of this idiotic adventure of some cringy-ass man who does jack shit.
