Spy vs. Spy is a comic strip that has run in MAD Magazine since 1961. It follows a black spy and a white spy as they employ dangerous sabotage tactics against one another. The series was created by cartoonist and political satirist Antonio Prohías, who was forced out of his native country of Cuba after he was accused by the Castro regime of being a spy. The strip is wildly successful, inspiring video games, board games, and television spots. As of 2023, a film spin-off is still in the works.
