We passed ONE MILLION visitors last weekend! Thanks to all the secret agents out there for making this community possible. As many of you may know, I started Spy Vibe just over five years ago as a place to celebrate 1960s style in action. I work as an art teacher by day and writer/artist by night, and it's been great meeting you all here in the Spy Vibe lair to highlight Cold War fashion, architecture, music, cinema, and cult TV. It's been an exciting time with many anniversary events and new media releases  I've especially enjoyed posting interviews, where I've had a chance to talk to collectors and current artists and writers working in the '60s mode. Over the years we've chatted with a Playboy Bunny from Swinging London, designers from Batman Animated and the Powerfuff Girls, Fantagraphics creator Richard Sala, Lee Pfeiffer from Cinema Retro, Raymond Benson (James Bond, Black Stiletto), Jeremy Duns (Paul Dark novels), the creators of Batman '66 Meets the Green Hornet, Trina Robbins (Wonder Woman, Miss Fury), and current authors covering The Avengers, Fu Manchu, Honey West, The Green Hornet, and many others. To celebrate this milestone, I'm giving away some cool contest prizes! See below for details.

Prize Contest: Enter to win one of the prizes below by sending an email to spy vibe[at] with the "prize name" in the subject line (names are in italics below). Write your name and mailing address in the body of the email. I will choose winners in a random drawing on September 17th. All emails and info will be deleted after the drawing. Spy Vibe will cover postage, but won't be responsible for any snafus that might occur during shipping. One prize per winner. Now, here's what you can win: OSS117: Lost in Rio (DVD/former rental), The Phantom: Slam Evil (DVD/former rental), Heil Harris: The Avengers (vintage TV cover paperback), Laugh Was on Lazerus: The Avengers (vintage TV cover paperback), Moonraker (vintage Signet 007 paperback), Dr No (vintage Signet 007 paperback), The Saint: Sees it Through (vintage Roger Moore cover paperback), Spy Ghost (vintage Norman Daniels paperback), Man From UNCLE #8 (comic book). Good Luck! Readers, can you help support Spy Vibe? As a teacher, the cost of the site domain and forwarding can be tough on the budget. Please consider making a small donation in the Paypal tip jar at top-left of the page. Thanks again! -Agent Jason
