Spy vs. Spy is a wordless comic strip that debuted in Mad magazine #60, dated January 1961, and was originally published by EC Comics. It was originally published in black-and-white. The strip was created by Antonio Prohias.
Antonio Prohias (January 17, 1921 - February 24, 1998), born in Cienfuegos, Cuba, was a cartoonist most famous for creating the comic strip Spy vs. Spy for MAD Magazine.
In 1946, Prohias was given the Juan Gualberto Gomez award, recognizing him as the foremost cartoonist in Cuba. By the late 1940s, Prohias had begun working at El Mundo, the most important newspaper in Cuba. In January 1959, Prohias was the president of the Cuban Cartoonists Association; after Fidel Castro seized power, he personally honored the cartoonist for his anti-Batista political cartoons.
