It started like a very ordinary investigative case for the Spirit, but just when he seemed to have it all figured out, the tale took an unexpected turn to reveal a larger criminal plan at work. Will Danny Colt find a way out or will this end up with a BANG?

Eisner winner Francesco Francavilla continues building a web of intrigue around our hero in this chilling second chapter.

    If I am honest, I am not a huge The Spirit fan, preferring darkness of The Shadow and his knowing of evil minds. That said, this book has a charm that impresses. It's odd that Dynamite can put out such a high quality book, both in dialogue and art, based on the previous standards set, yet seem to have made a complete mess of some recent reboots.

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Mar 14, 2017

    Despite a plot that is still somewhat sketchily defined (intentionally, though), writer/Artist/Letterer Francesco Francavilla continues to deliver the goods with The Spirit - The Corpse-Makers #2, proving that Will Eisner's most famous creation packs his boldest punch when there's a singular creative vision at the helm. With a masterful command of atmosphere, an action-packed script, and beautiful art, this issue is an enjoyable read from cover to cover. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Nate Charles Mar 16, 2017

    If you're a fan of the Spirit, you certainly should be checking out The Corpse Makers. In fact, you should be reading this book if you're a fan of mystery and noir media in general. What Francesca Francavilla is crafting here is shaping up to really be something special and out of the norm for a character some may consider a "super hero." With the set up out of the way, this issue has left me hungry for answers that I hope we'll receive in issue three. Read Full Review

    Ultimately then, this latest series serves as a solid addition to the rich Spirit mythos, and sees Francavilla stamping his own distinctive mark on the iconic crimefighter. An intriguing story with some legitimately world-class artwork, this is a series that comes highly recommended for fans of pulp crime mysteries. Read Full Review

    While there isn't much dialogue to speak of, the fantastic imagery more than makes up for it, making this a worthy read. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 22, 2017

    I knew that getting into this miniseries that I'd fall in love with it through the visual presentation of it as Francavilla is incredibly talented and there's no disputing that. Everything oozes off the page in a beautiful way with the blending of the art, colors, and the lettering, that's wonderfully cohesive. This installment builds on what kicked off the series and I love the way the interrogation scene plays out with how The Spirit handles it. But the book feels more like a sliver of the story rather than something that truly advances it, which is fine. What we get is engaging and fun to read and will be a stronger part of a whole than this individual read. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Mar 24, 2017

    I wish there was more to say about this issue, but it's hard when the story is decompressed like this. That is not to say that it wasn't a good issue, or that I'm not enjoying the story, because I did. This story will read better as a trade, so I do recommend waiting for that to come out, or sit down and read the entire mini at once and I feel that it will flow much better. Read Full Review
