The widow Ophelia Ottoman is the drop-dead gorgeous heir of one of the most powerful crime families in Central City. So why did she ever marry a loser like Jimmy Bauhaus?

There's a mystery buried with that dead man, and it's The Spirit's job to dig it up!And in the SPIRIT: BLACK & WHITE co-feature, modern masters Walter Simonson and Jordi Bernet bring you "Gemini," the tale of twin sisters nobody could tell apart...but where one is a good girl, the other is very, very bad indeed!

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 20, 2010

    This is another great issue for The Spirit, which continues to flourish under the watchful eyes of David Hine and Moritat. They spin a fun, but somewhat shallow mystery in the midst of a larger and more satisfying plot that I think has some real potential. When you add in a solid blackandwhite backup from the legendary Walt Simonson and equallyaslegendary Jordi Bernet, you've got a really solid issue that is worth a purchase in spite of needing some polish in all aspects.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 21, 2010

    Aside from the cover (ugh, can we get rid of these “First Wave” bars at the top and bottom, please!), there's much to enjoy here. David Hine has gotten better over the series and here seems to have gotten the tone and humor of the character just right, and the art by Moritat proves to be seductive, humorous (I love the Sprit's smirk!), and a little bit naughty. The comic also includes another b&w Spirit adventure by Walt Simonson. Worth a look. Read Full Review
