    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers Jan 18, 2007

    This issue does stray a bit from the one preceding it, and this is both good and bad. This is good because it keeps this title fresh, and it keeps the reader entertained. This is bad only because the first issue was so good that coming off of that high is tough. One small downside to the story is that some readers may not really understand the type of person PGell is nor the relationship and history between the Spirit and her which could possibly make some of what goes on in this issue hard to swallow. However, through his great writing and amazing art, Cooke still manages to provide a great story for a classic character. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Chris Williamson Feb 8, 2008

    This story runs circles around the first issue, and while not perfect, definitely changed my mind about the series. My scorecard now reads 1-1. I hope the trend continues towards wins in the future. Issue #3 here I come, a day late and a dollar short. Read Full Review

    There is no comparison between The Spirit and the lion's share of comic books on the racks. The Spirit is the better in every respect, but this issue sports a few flaws. The pacing for the story isn't snappy enough. Too much time is spent going back and forth between Ellen's home. Ultimately this issue, while worthy for purchasing, isn't as zippy as the brilliant premiere or the special Batman/Spirit. Read Full Review
