#' @title Spy vs. Spy Data
#' @description Historical data of Spy vs. Spy comic strip written by Antonio Prohias:
#' issue number, date, outcome, and others.
#' @usage data(svs)
#' @format A \code{data.frame} object with 248 observations and 9 columns. 
#' The columns are defined as follows:
#' \describe{
#'  \item{\code{Mad_no}}{The issue number of Mad Magazine. Typically these are
#'  integers, but two non-integral pseudo issue numbers were created for the 
#'  \dQuote{Mad Super Special #19} (appearing as 185.5) and \dQuote{Mad '84} (appearing as
#'  250.5).}
#'  \item{\code{yrmo}}{A character of the year and month of publication, given in the format
#'  \code{\%Y-\%m}. The data run from January, 1961 through July, 1994.}
#'  \item{\code{omnibus_page}}{The page the strip appears in the Spy vs. Spy
#'  Omnibus.}
#'  \item{\code{author}}{The listed author of the strip. This takes only one value, \sQuote{Antonio Prohias}.}
#'  \item{\code{artist}}{The listed artist of the strip. This is mostly \sQuote{Antonio Prohias}, but later
#'  strips with \sQuote{Bob Clarke} and \sQuote{David Manak} also appear.}
#'  \item{\code{white_comeuppance}}{Whether the White Spy received a
#'  \sQuote{comeuppance} in the strip. This varies from full-on bombing to losing plans to the Black Spy. 
#'  In some strips, both Spies may be injured, with one Spy receiving a substantially greater injury; in
#'  that case, the latter Spy is listed as receiving comeuppance.}
#'  \item{\code{black_comeuppance}}{Whether the Black Spy received a
#'  \sQuote{comeuppance} in the strip.}
#'  \item{\code{grey_spy_appearance}}{Whether the Grey Spy appeared in the
#'  strip. In cases when she does, both the White and Black spy receive a
#'  comeuppance.}
#'  \item{\code{v_for_victory}}{Whether the victorious spy flashes the
#'  \sQuote{v for victory} sign, common in the later strips.}
