Gold Key Comics presented two issues of another popular Patrick (The Prisoner) McGoohan television series, Secret Agent (know as Danger Man in the U.K.)
Dell comics did come out with a one-shot comic of Danger Man a few years earlier. Tony Tallarico handled the artistic chores in which John Drake goes undercover as part of a riding act to prevent the murder of a Prime Minister who is attending a circus with his son.
The Gold Key Secret Agent comic books were written by Dick (Jet Dream, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea) Wood & illustrated by Bill (The Phantom, Girl from U.N.C.L.E.) Lignante, Bob (The Rifleman) Jenney & Sal (Superheroes, Wild Wild West) Trapani.
It was all straight up espionage action.

There was always a debate whether John Drake was The Prisoner, or not. Patrick McGoohan says no, he didn't even originally plan to portray The Prisoner's Number 6 at all! David McDaniel, in the Ace Books The Prisoner #2 novel, used John Drake's name for The Prisoner.
This debate will go on!
