this is very fast pace, there is a lot happening. it escalated very quickly. but over all is was a good book, even though the characters had really outstanding features, and i mean that literally. the art was great but it makes the characters look kind of funky. i think this book is a little better than okay. id recommend this to anyone who likes a combination of fast pace, thriller, and superhero.

i'm gonna be completely honest, the book would be better

Recommends it for: Fans del autor y del género espiesco.
Recommended to Federiken by: el nombre de su autor y su bajo precio.
Leído y poseído en la edición de dos números publicada por Norma en el año 2000, que pude leer recién cuando conseguí el primer tomo, después de tener el segundo juntando polvo durante varios meses.
El resultado: valió la pena, pero menos mal que no tenía tantas expectativas puestas en la obra, porque posiblemente me habría decepcionado.
David parece con ganas de ser original y parte con mejores intenciones que resultados. La premisa del pibe normal/espía supersecreto es divertida y dentro de todo

I found this book very confusing and hard to follow. It certainly left a lot of questions for the next book to answer. The names were creative. Bombshell was the girl's name. Spyboy was the name of the main character. The villian who is chef was named Gourmet. If not for all of the cliff hangers, I would not be interested in reading the next book.

SPY BOY is a great addition to the comic book world. I love the concept of a nerdy boy finding out that he is a sleeper cell spy. There is a lot of room for impovement and development. I am intersted in seeing where the series goes.

It helps to read this book as Peter David making fun of all spy film cliches.
