Fotonovelas #7: Agents of Awesomeness


Araña Negra, Goldrake, Genius, Joe Crack... these are some of the headliners of spy/action fotonovellas of the 70s and 80s.  Sure, Kriminal, Santos and Diabolik are more famous, but we've covered them before.  Let's take a look at some covers featuring this lesser-known band of international secret agents, and champions of truth, justice, and T and A.



DON ARCHER


I think Don Archer is a good guy, but as you'll see, he's pretty rough with the ladies.  Sort of a James Bond with serious anger issues.

In case you've never seen one of these fotonovellas, here's a glimpse at what they look like inside....

  1. I saw these in 7-11 and some bookstores all through the 80s.
    I have one for Battlestar Galactica and Star Wars.

  2. For some reason when I saw "Whiskey y Baby-Doll", I thought I could see Karl Malden behind that mysterious mask.
