    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Nov 13, 2013

    The Rocketeer/The Spirit Pulp Friction is a fast-paced and fun series uniting two great characters. Waid has handled the different casts well and crafted a story that makes sense, which is an accomplishments considering how some other team-up stories of late have been. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Nov 13, 2013

    All of this wacky action is held together brilliantly, with charm, humour and a wink to the camera by the returning J.Bone. This is a book that I was avoiding, not because of the character (who I love), and not because of the very witty and entertaining writing of Mark Waid. I was avoiding it because the art was bloody terrible. Well, that has been sorted out now, so back on the book I go. It's a lot of fun, and I highly recommend that the good readers of this review check it out as well. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Patrick McAleer Nov 20, 2013

    This third issues sees the third artist in the series and ordinarily that would bother me, but Waid has managed to find a new artist each time that maintains the fun tone of the book, not to mention Denny Colt's lantern jaw. The artist in question here, J Bone has a sumptuous Saturday morning cartoon style, which when coupled with the Saturday afternoon matine story Waid is crafting, means we're getting the best of both worlds here. Colours by Rom Fajardo are pitch perfect for such a pulpy confection, a feast for the eyes.Overall this is a rollicking little series bringing together two great heroes and it's a credit to IDW and DC for coming together to do so. More Please ! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Sam Roche Nov 13, 2013

    This series truly has a chance to wrap-up well. If Mark Waid can combine all of the threads well and finally reveal who Herr Octopus is, I believe the ending will be a good one and the series will be memorable. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 18, 2013

    Of course there is still a problem with the teleporting power of the signal. Although Betty's insides aren't scrambled like those of the poor victim who found himself in California, her mind is emptied allowing her to be the perfect pawn of and the Octopus and Trask who turn poor Betty into another of The Spirit's femme fatales and set her loose on the hero. Worth a look. Read Full Review
