It looks like it's going to be a good six-month stretch for fans of "Super Spy" creator Matt Kindt. Not only did his latest work "3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man," drop back in October, it looks like March will welcome volume 2 of his flagship series.
"Super Spy (Vol.2 ): The Lost Dossiers
" is currently set to ship this March according to publisher Top Shelf Productions' Web site entry.
Here's how Top Shelf describes the upcoming release:
"Couldn't get enough of the critically-acclaimed and Eisner-nominated SUPER SPY? Curious what all the fuss is about? Have we got a book for you! Creator Matt Kindt has pulled out all the stops to make this an unforgettable supplement to (or first taste of) his 2007 opus. What's inside? Deleted scenes! Standalone spy stories! Sketchbook pages! 3-D comics! Full annotations! Diagrams of spy gadgets and keys to unlock hidden secret codes! Toys and stories for you to cut out and assemble! It's like a secret spy activity book for grown-ups! PLUS: illustrations, photos, and commentary from Matt explaining the real-world spy origins of his stories and techniques! Don't just read this book... USE it!"
The first volume of "Super Spy" was one of my favorite OGNs of 2007, which means I'm totally down for a second volume - even if it's not a true sequel. But I'm counting on Top Shelf and Kindt not to keep me waiting for a third volume for much longer or I may have to result to espionage to see the material. Of course, given all the doodads stuffed inside of this second volume, I may still be decoding his first outing by the time 2011 rolls around.
