The Sad Sad Story of Almost Blue

The Spirit #6
Written by Darwyn Cooke
Art by Cooke

This was a fantastic issue. I think The Spirit is a lot like the Sandman was, in the sense it is not so much about the title character as it is about the people and characters around him. And I love that because Cooke writes some wonderful character. The sad story of Almost Blue was great, you really feel for him as you read it. I loved how this issue ended it exactly where it began, there was something magical about that. I wonder if this is the last we will see of Almost Blue? It is really seen if he and Rico are really dead or not and in comics, if you don’t see the body, they are probably alive. The cover has a little too much going on but the interior of this book was great.
