    If you are not reading the Spirit you are missing out on a good time. This book is among my favourites on the stands, and has been firing on all cylinders lately. While this issue may not be a great jumping-on point, I would highly recommend catching up with this book either in back-issues or upon the eventual release of the trade paperback, as it is one of the most promising series being released at the moment and I worry that it's being overlooked.

    While I expect the truth about what happened to surface in full at some point, the execution of this book is just so ridiculously spot on that it's crazy. After three issues without the title character I was wary about his return to the book, but the team really hits it out of the park here. I'm still not sure exactly how it'll go with him in it, having adjusted to it without him, but it's setting up some interesting material to come. I really loved this issue just for what they gave us with P'Gell and her tale combined with all the other elements. The wordplay is great, the overall structure of the book wonderful and Schkade's artwork just dazzles me in so many ways. Each page feels like it should be framed. Read Full Review

    The series works best when the tales are being spun. The ladies in the Spirit's life have always been a huge portion of the books appeal and its fun and engaging when they are allowed to let their larger than life personalities run roughshod all over an otherwise by the books detective yarn. P'Gell is a stone cold killer but she has personality and that's what counts. I would be ok if the majority of the series existed in flashback which is saying something because I generally hate them.
