You're all reading THE SPIRIT aren't you?

I just can't imagine NOT reading Darwyn Cooke's WILL EISNER'S THE SPIRIT right now. This book is a pure delight. It contains single issue stories that are gradually filling us in on the background of one of comic's greatest characters... the masked adventurer the Spirit, originally created by Will Eisner. Cooke is also (re)introducing Eisner's vast array of supporting characters, all the while telling fast-paced, rollicking adventure stories. Issue 4 (now on the racks) brings us a Silk Satin story, with the mysterious nemesis the Octopus as the villain pulling the strings. These stories are not your typical super-hero fare, but if you are a fan of high adventure crime-fighting, then this series is for you.

Cooke's beautiful layouts resurrect and capture the -er- spirit of the old strip, his artwork more homage to the master than mere duplication. If anyone can do Eisner's SPIRIT, Darwyn Cooke can.

Will Eisner would be proud.

Oh, and check out Darwyn Cooke's NEW FRONTIER from DC Comics... the absolute best stories of the 1950s DC characters EVER.

Hey Bill,

Did you put this one in my box? I THINK I asked you to, but my addled brain sometimes plays tricks on me...

Dude, you need to come in more often...

And, yes, I put you down for this 2 months ago, (as far as I know) off the top of my head. Come on in and see if it's there!

(insert some sort of happy-faced "emoticon" thingie here)

Yes, I do believe it's time for my semi-annual Comix Connection visit.

I can't believe I haven't gotten THE CALL from a countermonkey yet!

Have I been granted some sort of comic book amnesty?
