Format: Paperback
I loved this comic. The spy slant of the book is neat but the book is really about the relationships of the characters in the book and how they interact with one another. You can read this comic on a few different levels. One is just to turn off your brain and enjoy the ride. It works okay as "popcorn fiction" but if I did just that, the book would have gotten more of a 3-4 star rating. I think it really shines when you take the time to read it (in fact, I think the book almost demands to be reread). The book is arranged in a nonlinear format - meaning that the events as they appear in the book are not arranged in chronological order (he gives you guides for each chapter so if you wanted to read it in a more linear manner you can). A lot of the stories are connected to one another and the nonlinear format had me flipping back and forth between different chapters and rereading a lot of parts. It also has some connections to past works (2 sisters) but you don't need to read anything else to get the stories in this book.

To be honest, the art style didn't appeal to me that much at first but after the first chapter, it didn't even bother me. The book is a good example of what makes telling a story in comic form so unique As I was rereading the book, not only was I picking up elements of the storyline I might have missed ("Oh, that character was in this scene and doing that") but I was also noticing design elements of the book that I didn't notice before. For example, there's a chapter that starts off with a photograph of a briefcase with numbers tagged to each item. It was only after I reread the book and started to think why that photograph was there did I notice that each page of the chapter has a different item in the briefcase from the beginning.

I can't say enough about Super Spy. While espionage stories are fairly common, Kindt provides a passion, a realism, and a sympathetic eye that are all rare in the genre. Espionage is far from the glamorous work portrayed in movies, and Kindt masterfully reflects this in his work. When you're finished reading this book, you'll marvel at its intricacy, yet pity the characters and their thankless line of work. This is the emotion, I believe, that Kindt is trying to pull out of the reader, and he does it perfectly.

If you are fan of indie graphic novels and have yet to read Super Spy, you are definitely missing out.

I don't think graphic novels should be sneered at. They can be a great blend of genres and pieces of art - well done Sacco, Satrapi, de Lisle and Modan! This one is not so good. The interwoven stories and the way everything relates back to the briefcase is a master stroke - but the art is weak, and the overall effect is like cheap propaganda. Case in point: the black cartoonist. Nazi Germany is the ultimate evil, but it's being fought by a segregated US army. The cartoonist proposes to his white girlfriend? Let's hope they live in a state where miscengenation is not illegal.
