The narrative scene shifts to the South Seas as a native fisherman struggles to provide for his family...and ends up snaring the biggest catch of his life. Meanwhile, back in Central City, Ebony and Sammy's search to uncover the cause of The Spirit's disappearance leads them to confront one of his oldest and wiliest Femme Fatale foes. And Ellen's distress over a certain proposal comes to a head as she's confronted by an unexpected revelation. Will Eisner's iconic character receives an all-new revival via the talents of Eisner Award-winning author Matt Wagner and the visual team of artist Dan Schkade and colorist Brennan Wagner.

    Will Eisner's The Spirit #3 is another excellent installment. Matt Wagner introduces us to a new villain, who not only has quite a bit of her own character depth, but also complicates The Spirit's character and the image of his relationship with Ellen. Schkade's artwork is top notch although there are some minor errors during the action sequences. The lettering is absolutely fantastic and is pushing the boundaries of what letterers can do in order to convey tone. This is a fun and enjoyable book that continues to add more layers and depth with each issue. Read Full Review

    This is definitely an exciting book that completely transports me back while still adhering to some of the strengths of modern comic storytelling. Read Full Review

    This series stumbled out of the starting gate with a forgettable first issue, but just two months later the book has become one of my favourites on the stands. The Spirit boasts a fun tone, very memorable characters and some stylish art courtesy of Dan Schkade. Indeed, whether you're a new reader or a veteran this book is definitely worth checking out and I hope Wagner stays on board for more stories once this initial arc wraps up. Read Full Review

    Will Eisner's The Spirit #3 may have its flaws, with one aspect in particular frustrating me, but that doesn't stop it from being an enjoyable comic. It also manages to give us some intriguing developments, with the creative team certainly laying the seeds for a game changing twist. Read Full Review

    I'm not dazzled by this story but I still very much enjoy reading each issue. I look forward to more characters from the Spirits past coming back into his life and can't wait for the inevitable reveal of the Octopus. I hear he has eight of everything (sorry). Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Liam Pollock Sep 16, 2015

    A decent issue that doesn't really do anything to stand out much. Story is easy to follow, art style is interesting but doesn't quite hit the mark it was intending to Read Full Review
