One of the highlights of the “SCAD MAD MAD MAD Weekend,” hosted last weekend by the Southeastern Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society at the Savannah College of Art and Design, was a “Spy vs. Spy” competition organized by Anthony Fisher, Chairman of the school’s Sequential Arts Department. Students were instructed to immerse themselves in the work of “Spy” creator Antonio Prohias, and then come up with their best black-and-white take on the eternal antagonists.
Last week, we told you the Spy vs. Spy Custom Toy Exhibit was coming to the New York Comic Con — and that there would be some surprise additions to the show! Well, here’s one of them! In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Spy vs. Spy, DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee contributed this awesome design, based on the “Composite Superman” character — complete with a murderous twist!
Every single Halloween it’s the same problem. You end up completely paralyzed when it comes time to pick out a costume. There are just too many options to choose from.

Thankfully, elope.com has come to the rescue with these amazing black and white Spy vs. Spy costumes, available now!
