Darwyn Cooke has always been a fantastic artist but with “Almost Blue”, he shows off his great writing skills. With The Spirit #6, Cooke introduces August “Almost” Blue, a momma’s boy with great musical talent but a monkey on his back the size of King Kong. Blue goes on a little adventure where he becomes the songwriter for his girlfriend’s punk band, finds a mysterious meteor that dropped a blue liquid drug, faced off against a controlling con man, and ends up dead.

While Cooke’s art has always been the highlight of The Spirit, it takes a back seat to his writing skills this issue. This is easily the best issue of the series and feels the most like Eisner’s Spirit. “Almost Blue” cements The Spirit’s place as the best current ongoing on the stands.

To discuss.
