What's New
The last ten major changes to the site.

  • 03/19/2017 - A former FBI agent who angered J. Edgar returns years later to help an old CIA friend and finds a new career and a new life. Please welcome a very enjoyable Burke Hill to the compendium.

  • 03/17/2017 - We welcome two different agents of the American government to the compendium today, both of them found in the pages of Danger Comics in 1954. The first is the impressive Duke Douglas who has 13 different tales (9 graphic and 4 text). The other is Virgil Stagg who graces us with just 3 comicbook stories. Please welcome them and enjoy reading their adventures.

  • 03/10/2017 - A very ho-hum comic series from 1940 is the latest entrant into the compendium. He did have his own codename so that is something in his favor but there is not much else to say about Secret Agent M-11. Please welcome him nevertheless.

  • 03/07/2017 - The latest entrant into the compendium is Richard Paladin, an assassin who works for ... ah, where's the fun in just telling you. Besides, you wouldn't believe me anyways. Check it out for yourself!

  • 03/04/2017 - Happy 900th Series!!!! Wee! I predicted back when I just went over 600 that I would likely never get to 700. When that milestone went by, I was certain that 800 would be reached. Now that 900 is a fact and my list of 'coming' series is over 300, well, there will be more milestones. I pondered only briefly which series to make my 900th one because the choice was easy. I wanted a series that I really enjoyed by an author I really like. I chose Mark Dawson's Isabella Rose as the one. I think you will like her as much as I did.

  • 03/03/2017 - If we went back to 1939 we could enjoy (I use the term very loosely) the exploits of Yank Wilson, agent Q-4, aka 'Super Spy'. Or you can read those adventures here if you want.

  • 03/02/2017 - A really enjoyable 3-book series about an archivist and a secret organization and a not-so-respectable President joins the compendium. I enjoyed and think you will, too, learning of Beecher White and his fascinating world.

  • 02/24/2017 - Let us go back a half century to 1966 and a very short-lived spy comic book series with a cool gimmick - cybernetics. Now, they called it a 'electro-robot' but that does not matter because Spyman was not around long enough to care. Still, nowadays, it is kinda fun to look back.

  • 02/22/2017 - A companion series to Corps Justice which joined a couple days ago is that of Daniel Briggs, a pony-tailed former Marine sniper with his own story. Please welcome this quiet but highly efficient gentleman to the compendium.

  • 02/19/2017 - It is good to have a little magic in your life. It certainly is the case for John Force, aka Magic Agent, an operative working in the comic book realm during the early to mid 60s. Please welcome this medallion-holding fellow to the compendium.

More What's New!


Say the word SPY to most people and they will respond with James Bond, with good reason as he is the best known of all fictional spies. With 20+ blockbuster movies over the last 40+ years, along with the standard movie hype, virtually the entire world knows about 007 and his License To Kill.

Of course, James Bond is by no means the only spy in the world of fiction, just the best known. Who are the rest? Who has his or her own license to kill, thrill, or chill. How do these agents stack up against each other? Who would you want beside you in a car chase, in a knife fight, in a dark alley, or beneath the covers?

This site is dedicated to the many, many men and women who, at least in fiction, have defended our freedoms against all forms of enemies, foreign and domestic. Well, granted a few of them were just in it for the money and many were only after the excitement, and sex played a huge role in the motivation of more than a few. But still, their actions helped not only preserve our way of life (on paper) but also brought us, the readers, many hours of escapism and vicarious pleasure.

So, who are these people that I have slaved so diligently to present to you? They are the men and women of spy-fi about whom there is a series. Single-book characters need not apply. There has to be at least two books. Two's the minimum but the more the merrier.

Moreover, I have confined membership to the English language. If it wasn't put into English so I can read it, I haven't worried about it.

Each spy has his or her own page. Click on the "Characters" button to go to a listing page. Click on the letter the character's last name starts with (or a more common moniker like "Death Merchant" if appropriate). That will take one step further into the labrynth. Finally, select the character's name from the list and, voila!

Have fun!!
