    Or is Bill Cosby still that toxic . . . ?

    Then it's all the better that you won it! Good choice of a visually captivating cover!

    Another spy comic that I thought might show up in the contest, but which didn't, is Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting's mini-series Velvet, about the "Moneypenny" character who's the executive assistant to the director of a British intelligence agency. Almost everyone assumes she is just the boss's secretary, but the really old-timers know that she was once in fact one of the agency's very top field operatives, long since brought in from the cold. Then suddenly she goes rogue...

    Congratulations to worstblogever for a marvelous cover which has truly reached iconic status. Looking at the detail in the background and the use of whatever those crazy curvy lines are called put this as a powerful symbol of the character. And helped to cement Nick as arguably the biggest of the Bond inspired spies of the sixties.

    As to what the captain has learned in this peak of the week, he has been reminded that the Bond influence on our view of spies is powerful, indeed. He has read that real spies resemble Drew Carey far more than they do any version of James Bond as spies need to blend in. Bond, like characters in My Cousin Vinny, does not "blend". Anyway, it's been a good week seeing the variety of covers, even if the preponderance are all pretty much Steranko Nick inspired.
    Why yes, I do enjoy hearing myself talk. it is very kind of you to notice>

    Congrats, WBE. And thanks to foxley and seismic-2 for the votes.

    To be honest, though, I was a bit tempted to go with Rob Liefeld's rendition of Ethan Hunt:


    As funny as that is, I still think I made the right decision.

    Although it worth noting, that Ian Fleming actually based many of Bond's characteristics on a Serbian double-agent named Duško Popov he knew during his time at MI6. In particular, he was promiscuous womanizer who courted women during his missions, including the French actress Simone Simon.
