I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Will Eisner would be proud.
Hot on the heels of the fantastic Batman/Spirit one-shot issue, award-winning Canadian writer/illustrator Darwyn Cooke opens the next chapter of Eisner’s classic series with a bang — delivering a sensational story and art that’ll take your breath away.
Cooke, whose work on the miniseries DC: The New Frontier earned him both an Eisner Award (the comic book industry’s top honours) and a Joe Shuster Award (Canada’s highest comic prize), returns The Spirit to his rightful place among comics’ most enduring heroes with a near-perfect blend of fast-paced action and dialogue as he rushes to save a TV hostess from the clutches of a nefarious mobster.
This series is so good you’ll need to catch your breath after every issue.
