I Spy

The obscure 1965 LOBO western comic book from Dell is generally considered to be the first mainstream comic book with an African-American hero but hot on its heels was the comic book adaptation of TV's ground-breaking black/white drama, I SPY.

The TV series co-starred actor Robert Culp with popular recording and stand-up comedian Bill Cosby in his first dramatic role.

I SPY's  first issue premiered in 1966 with very good art by Al McWilliams  (TWIN EARTHS) who would continue throughout most of the title's oddly sporadic run through 1968.
