    Don't get me wrong, this story isn't the same as a traditional Spirit tale, which was usually more of a concise O. Henry-style tale. This is more modern, more action and humor and relationships - but I have to think Will would have enjoyed it. Read Full Review

    I've essentially raved about this series from the start, a book that I kind of checked out on a lark amid a lull as it's not a property in comic form that I've ever been attracted to. I've been hit or miss with Matt Wagner over the years, loving his Grendel and Mage work but struggling elsewhere, but he utterly nails this tone perfectly and feels so completely at home in it that I can't really describe it properly. At the same time, Dan Schkade has been a revelation to me over the past year. My introduction to him through this series has me eager to see what else he'll be up to for years to come because it's just oozing with style, design, and beautiful layouts that flow in a compelling way. The richness of his designs for locales and characters elevated Wagner's story to a whole other level. I can't recommend this enough. Read Full Review

    While the colors by Brennan Wagner feel a little murky at times, this is a great showing from Dynamite. Read Full Review

    This was such a great series and an excellent finale. I am only disappointed it is over! It ties up all the loose ends but also leaves it open for future stories. I look forward to going back and reading the whole story in a sitting. Hopefully this create team returns for a follow up, as they really deserve accolades for this classic arc. Highly recommended!
