They didn’t manage to get their own story lines (in Marvel Comics Presents) until the 1990s and their own title didn’t come out until 2006.  More

Marvelette Missives – The Secret Service

With the news in early August that Netflix has purchased comic book company Millarworld (publisher of Kick-Ass, Wanted, Jupiter’s Legacy and more) and with Kingsman: The Golden Circle in theaters, it seems a good time to have a post about The Secret Service, on which the Kingsman: The Secret Service movie is based.
