A lighter week for Dynamite with the holidays approaching, so we only have one exclusive extended preview… but it's a good one. Will Eisner's The Spirit #6, which I did an advanced review on, is a great jumping on point for the series by Matt Wagner, Dan Schkade and Brennan Wagner.
Will Eisner's The Spirit #6
writer: Matt Wagner artist: Dan Schkade, Brennan Wagner cover: Eric Powell
Once again, the narrative shifts to an unexpected locale as an ex-GI finds himself in the role of both mercenary and jailer. In Wildwood Cemetery, The Spirit finally reveals the course of his unknown exploits to both Ebony and Sammy, a tale that involves smuggled nerve agents, devious traps and a tropical island turned penitentiary. But the mystery only deepens as the first half of this 12-issue arc reaches its conclusion and our blue-masked hero is left with only more questions than answers as to the course of his own unexplained absence. This hit series revives one of comics' most iconic characters at the hands of Eisner Award winning author Matt Wagner and the dynamic art team of artist Dan Schkade and colorist Brennan Wagner.
