Cover- Another Jan. DC cover, its got a guy on it who I'm guessing will be a part of the story. (5/10)

Story- I am surprised by how much I really liked the story, first time ever reading the Spirit too. I didn't see the ending coming at all. (6/10)

Art- Solid, more of my style. Cassanova was to gritty. (6/10)

Overall- Very pleased with this choice. Enjoyed it. (6/10)

Long live Hal Jordan, the greatest Green Lantern of them all.

The Spirit #10

I can't say that I've read a lot of The Spirit. I've read Cooke's run, but that's it. I am one of the 3 people who loves Frank Miller's The Spirit, heck I even have a movie poster hanging here in my office, but that's kind of it's own thing so I don't really consider myself a fan of the character.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this. I was hoping for a fun rollicking Spirit adventure, but what I got was a tale about a schizophrenic thug who goes on to commit suicide. Bummer. It was a decent enough little noir story, but nothing stood out about it. Same goes for the art.

Story: 6
Art: 7
Overall: 6.5

I was gonna review this ages ago but BlueStreak was too lazy to put the link to this thread in the following week's thread, so I forgot about it.

I was surprised to enjoy this book, as I know nothing about The Spirit and have no interest in him. However, I do appreciate a good one-shot story, and this was solidly written and had decent art. The plot wasn't very original, taking a very basic concept that goes all the way back to stories like Poe's The Telltale Heart, wherein a killer would escape punishment for his crime if not driven insane by his own guilt. In this case, rather than confession, the story ends in suicide. Overall, it was an light, enjoyable read.

Don't know why, but I just reread this thread. It's amusing how off topic it goes.
