About G.I. SPY:
G.I. SPY is a war-behind-the-war story that follows America's first counterintelligence agent as he uncovers Hitler's secret 'wonder weapons' program, which if left unchecked could give the Nazis the edge and allow them to actually win the Second World War - and rule the world.
About G.I. SPY co-creator and artist Matt Haley:
The Houston, Texas-born comic book artist Matt Haley gained a solid fan base by drawing Dark Horse Comics' 'Ghost', which invigorated the pencillerís love of pulp adventure themes. Fuelled by his work on 'Birds of Prey' for DC, Matt then became a writer/artist, co-creating such titles as 'Tangent: Joker', 'Elseworld's Finest: Supergirl and Batgirl', 'Gen 13: Science Friction' and 'G.I. SPY'. He is also a seasoned graphic illustrator, having become a creative consultant for Nike Inc., done animation design for the "Adventures of Seinfeld & Superman" American Express commercials, art-directed Stan Lee's "Who Wants To Be A Superhero" TV show, and many others. "G.I. SPY" has recently been optioned as a PS3 game.
