Meanwhile, back in Central City, Ebony and Sammy’s search to uncover the cause of The Spirit’s disappearance leads them to confront one of his oldest and wiliest Femme Fatale foes. And Ellen’s distress over a certain proposal comes to a head as she’s confronted by an unexpected revelation. Will Eisner’s iconic character receives an all-new revival via the talents of Eisner Award-winning author Matt Wagner and the visual team of artist Dan Schkade and colorist Brennan Wagner
There are two parts to this issue, and they link together very nicely at the end! In addition to these two parts we get a nice flashback to another adventure of The Spirit. We are rapidly running out of suspects! We may be getting some answers though in among the action and the investigation. I’m really enjoying the story here, and look forward to seeing what else there is!
