Exiled To The Funny Pages, The Story Of Spy Vs Spy

Funny2 min Read

From being an accused spy to creating America’s favorite spies, we look at the life of cartoonist Antonio Prohias & some tattoos, of course.

From being the most celebrated cartoonist in Cuba to being an exile in America, the life of Antonio Prohias took some interesting turns. Many are familiar with his most famous creation, Spy Vs Spy, but few know the tale behind the talented artist responsible for the most widely-recognized cartoon from Mad Magazine.

We hope you’ve enjoyed these Spy Vs Spy tattoos and learning a little bit about the man behind them. We also hope you’ve taken some inspiration from a story about how a man can go from one of the most successful cartoonists in his country to a penniless political exile to one of the most successful cartoonists in a new country. America is a great like that.
