There's no refuge in a Central City snowstorm for a newsie down on his luck, but might The Spirit notice and save the day? And who killed the Central City councilman who had five mistresses too many? But the real question is, when does high art turn into criminal hijinks? You won't want to miss these three mysteries in our special black-and-white issue with extra story pages!

    Thin on story and passable in art, this extra-paged, black-and-white issue seems less like a genuine tribute project and more like an excuse to save money on colorists. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Aug 15, 2011

    The fact that DC is relaunching its universe with all new number ones has nothing to do with this series being cancelled. The idea behind First Wave was a great one, but I think somewhere along the way someone thought it would be better to mash the past and present together to create a different world, and honestly, I think it had readers scratching their heads and setting the books aside for something more familiar. If you are completist, then you've probably already picked up this issue, but if you haven't, The Spirit #17 is one you can leave on the shelf until the next time someone decides to relaunch the series. The Spirit #17 is solid, but disappointing, and earns 2 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
