U.N.C.L.E. SCHOOL 7

U.N.C.L.E. SCHOOL 7
In the heat of the Cold War and popularity of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Gold Key published a series of twenty-two comics from 1965-1968 (with two issues reprinting earlier scripts). In addition to the stories, readers could learn tricks of the trade and hear about historical spy events in the overleaf pages that were added to most issues as bonus content. For Spy Vibers, it's a chance to go back in time and get a degree in espionage- from U.N.C.L.E.! Here are the lessons from issue #7 (July 1966). To see pages from earlier issues, please visit the Collections page on the Spy Vibe website. Click on images for larger view.

  1. I had a number of how-too-be-a-spy books from the UK when I was a kid, and some of the tips were identicle to those above.

  2. Some day, I'm going to do a series of posts about the Usbourne spy/detective series. Those were the best books ever!

  3. Were the UK books illustrated?

    Armstrong, give us a brief intro to Usbourne. I don't know those stories.
