Spy vs. Spy 3D


I find that a great part of the information I have was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.

I think they've done a stellar job of capturing the feel of the cartoon, both in terms of the elemental plotting and violence, and the stripped-down black and white look of the strip. One of the ads ends "to be continued". I hope there will be more...
Thanks, Ned! ...
