Comics Week: Agente Secreto. We've seen many cool Danger Man (Secret Agent) comics from around the word this week. Although the French Destination Danger covers may have topped the list for their strong illustrated covers, the Spanish Secreto Agento have a unique quality- infiltration. As you can see below, the series eventually ran stories about many popular spy characters, including The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and James Bond. But if you look closely, you'll see there were cases when the publisher decided to run other heroes under the masthead of McGoohan's John Drake. Who is that tall modern-day Robin Hood under the Drake logo? Roger Moore's The Saint steps into action! Agente Secreto had an alternate graphic design for their line of rotating secret agents, a small target image with crouching spy silhouette, which you can see was used below in the Bond and U.N.C.L.E. issues. Eurospy fans might like to pour through back issues to locate interesting, lesser-known characters Enjoy!
