The Spirit’s Own Selina Kyle

The Spirit #2
Written by Darwyn Cooke
Art by Cooke and J. Bone

While I wouldn’t say I enjoyed this issue as much as last issue, this series is still going strong. (Not that I expected it to be bad or any thing.) P’Gell is a great Femme Fatale and according to Wikipedia, she is not a new character. P’Gell’s relationship with the Spirit reminds me a lot of Batman and Catwoman. Except P’Gell is still really a villain and Catwoman isn’t but still. The art is great and fits the tone of the story, although I would have liked to see the cemetery more that The Spirit has his base in. I hope one day Cooke explains how The Spirit became The Spirit as he hasn’t really re-told the origin story yet I would like to see his version of it. I think I just might go buy the Spirit Archives that DC has published. This is a great read.
