Codename: Knockout is a comic book series published by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics for 24 issues (numbered #0-23) between June 2001 and June 2003. It was created by writer Robert Rodi and artist Louis Small, Jr.

The premise of the series was to follow the adventures of buxom blonde Angela St. Grace (the "Codename: Knockout" of the title) a secret agent and operative for the "G.O.O.D." (Global Organization for the Obliteration of Dastardliness) organization as she battled the nefarious agents of "E.V.I.L." (Extralegal Vendors of Iniquity and Licentiousness).
She is assisted by her partner Go Go Fiasco, a young, handsome, gay fellow agent and by her mother Celeste St. Grace, the leader of the G.O.O.D. organization.
