This year is the 50th anniversary of Spy vs. Spy, and MAD has been busy with the celebrations. One of the cooler things they did was to produce a bunch of prototype, unpainted Spy figures and send them out to a variety of artists and sculptors, inviting them to make their own custom Spy. They had a glass case full of the resulting figures at Comic-Con last month, and have been busy posting images of a new one every day on their shiny new blog, The Idiotical. The one above was done by my friend, fellow NCS member and the creator of Foxtrot, Bill Amend.
There are lots of others, ranging from the whimsical to the downright bizarre. Go check them out. In fact, if you don’t regularly visit The Idiotical, you are missing out. It’s chock full of chuckles posted on a daily basis.
