Spy x Family by Tatsuya Endo - ADVISABLE

Spy x Family (#1) by Tatsuya Endo, 207 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL. VIZ Media, 2020. $10.

Language: PG (11 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG13



The agent known as Twilight abandoned his true identity to become a spy. For his latest assignment, he must also take on the roles of husband and father to get close to his target. This is just another part to play, just an assignment like any other for Westalis’s greatest spy -- right?

The premise of this secretive family’s story drew me in, and I am ecstatic that it was as good as I wanted it to be. With all three members of the family keeping secrets, I felt engaged and on edge the whole time, wondering who will blow their cover first. Furthermore, Endo has created a good balance of intense action, where you want them to succeed in their missions, with humorous avoidance of their secrets. I don’t know when volume 2 is coming out, but, if it isn’t today, it’s going to be hard to wait for. The violence rating is for gun use, murder, and gore.
