    The Spirit continues to be one of the best books being put out by Dynamite while also being one of the hardest to market. Wagner's scripts are just an utter delight and Schkade brings this world to life with such a rich and vivid design that honors what's come before while making it his own that it's simply striking. Sadly, a lot of folks just won't give a book like this a chance, which means they miss out on some fantastic storytelling and great character material. This type of series is not my typical interest but I took a chance on the opening book and got sucked in big time. Every issue since, this one included, only reinforces what a great decision that was. Read Full Review

    With a bit about the identity of the villain revealed, along with the name of the femme fatale who kept the Spirit prisoner on the island in his time away from Central City, Matt Wagner sets the stage for the final third of the twelve-issue maxi-series. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    This continues to be a great series. Action, adventure, romance, evil, humour. What more could you want from a comic? I urge people to read one issue - the chances are you'd be hooked.
