Background notes: As agent parodies goes, Steve Pops is a pretty standard character. The stories are mostly spoofing the Sean Connery version of James Bond movies, but it does contain elements of other famous spy series like Man from U.N.C.L.E. (Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin even makes a cameo appearance).

The series only contains two albums and is mostly forgotten, contrary to his other series like Superherman and Tim et Tom, and the character was never transferred to other media.
