Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Haven’t really felt the 1st 2 issues storywise, but man, the art has been amazing!

  2. @PozrDu – I am surprised because I am really loving everything about this. The art is fabolous. Last Issue had a Harlan Ellison Co-feature … can’t beat that.

  3. this comic is great!  I had been missing the Spirit since the last series ended, and while this current series has an entirely different look and feel I’m enjoying it just as much.

  4. Yes, this has been great. The Ellison/Kyle Baker back up last month was crazy good.

  5. @AmirCat – I think it’s because I’ve got a fondness for the Eisner Spirit stories where the Spirit was a ruse for the stories really about the "incidental" characters.  This stuff feels more Miller than Eisner.  Miller’s great, but lacks the warm empathy of Eisner.

  6. @PozrDu – Right on.  That’s exactly the difference I wanted to express between this series with Schultz vs. the last series with Cooke/Aragones/etc.  in my previous comment.  The only difference for me obviously, is that I’m feeling the same excitement either way.  Further, I might say that this series so far, is a nice medium ground between Miller’s take on the character in his movie vs. the previous comic series.

    perhaps I’ll elaborate in a review after issue #3 comes out.
