The Spirit (#9)
So they tried but the commissioner is still ticking though, they are not done with the Spirit while he relates the story of just how he knows Vaas' daughter. It is a great book as the art and story are great! They are really taking their time especially in a time and age where in 9 books you can have 3 different story lines. This is a great one that has been building and building, taking its time to build and build. This story is not done by any means and I am glad for that!
The Spirit (#8)
So the Spirit discovers he knows more about Vaas then he thought while the councilman REALLY wants the commissioner's job and will go to such a deep length to get a hold of it....right down to murder! It is all slowly building like a good crime book should instead of handing you all the answers right up front for your gratification. The Spirit is the original supernatural good guy, and a classic as well, that Dynamite is showing you how much you can do with him...and boy are they planning some big stuff for this character it seems.
The Spirit (#7)
Spoiler alert! Seven issues in, we finally get to meet the mysterious Vaas who has everyone, their workers and other mobsters alike, shaking in their boots as the Spirit and company try to find all the answers to this case. As well, seems that they have someone on the inside looking to help Vaas in their plans. The book is slowly building as the storyline continues to build and build until the eventual confirmation where the Spirit and Vaas meet face to face in the battle that will follow...and I cannot wait!

Ghostbusters International (#2)
Wow! Can you believe that I have already hit 500 posts!? Well, for my 500th post, I am reviewing the latest issue of the IDW Ghostbusters series. After the sale of Ghostbusters Inc. falls through, they are on loan instead to the rich dude who wishes to use them to clean out his haunted properties. However, their first job does not look as easy as you'd think. As well, Egon has a theory that he is working on since he could not make the trip due to his injuries. The story is great and so is the art. So, now, when something strange in the world happens...who you gonna call?
Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Hitler
In a one and done Ash faces Hitler in HELL! That's right folks! Ash must save us from the ultimate evil who is looking to take over Hell and Earth! The laughs are plenty as this book is just really enjoyable for the whole read! You will literally be laughing when Hitler first arrives until the conclusion of the epic battle. In other words, the art and story are groovy baby so, hail to the king!

R.I.P. David Hughes aka Scabs
A few days ago, we lost drummer David Hughes aka Scabs who drummed for the legendary Frankenstein Drag Queens from the Planet 13 on the final 2 albums Viva Los Violence and 6 Feet. His work provided a solid foundation in which the band kicked ass from with those albums! Though I am not sure what he passed from, his presence will be missed. Those albums were maybe the heaviest of the whole Frankenstein Drag Queens from the Planet 13 discography. So R.I.P. man, may many more discover and fall for your awesome work if they haven't already.

Vampwoov - Drunk on a Mountain
Hrabia/The Bastards - Sons of Salem (Split)
Saturday, 19 March 2016
Well Lucifer is walking around in the land of dreams, looking for a way out while a couple of run aways find themselves on a bus leading them out of their problems. With Hell about to be unleashed on a bus, where does this all lead to in the grand scheme of things in finding the murderer of God? Another fantastic issue as we dive deeper into the mystery, looking for clues and answers as the plot continues to thicken some more.
Big Trouble in Little China (#22)
Well, there is some trouble as Jack and company need help from Lo Pan with the targets on their backs along with the storm brewing. Throw in Trump's ancestor or spirit animal based on your point of view along with laughs and violence to give yourself an idea of how well this issue is. They are really picking up the steam in the post Carpenter/Powell issues to keep readers engaged with the series and not have them drop it. Good work Boom, you have a winner on your hands.

The Spirit (#6)
Well, this is the final review for today as I play catch up on the series! We get more answers as to what happened to the Spirit and his time away. However, we only have one clue and a name of who was behind it all. They are slowly building up the story and I like where it is headed instead of going with the one and done approach. Low and slow, slow burner, I don't care what you call it but I like the approach that Dynamite is taking with this classic character complete with great art! Get on this series if you haven't already! It is awesome!
The Spirit (#5)
Well, he's back to crime fighting as he has joined the case about his own disappearance. However, he wants to keep his reappearance hush hush until the case is solved. There is action and mystery as he does battle with the mysterious Octopus thinking he had something to do with it. ...but did he? The questions keep piling up as we get closer to the truth.
The Spirit (#4)
Just when it looks like we are finally getting an answer, we are left with more questions about his disappearance! The book is great so far as the story takes the Spirit and throws him into the lives of the other characters who have changed and have their own issues 2 years later as everything has changed. Maybe we will find out more as we are getting reintroduced to his rogues gallery bit by bit in this investigation as we near the truth.
The Spirit (#3)
After more questions then answers, THE SPIRIT IS BACK! There are still some questions that needs to be answered but, now that he is back, maybe we can be filled in on what happened 2 years ago. I feel like they could have gone another issue before having him reach Central City but, I understand why they would have him appear now. Some people would be impatient and drop the book if he didn't arrive fast enough. Now, let's get some answers as to what happened.
The Spirit (#2)
So, after heading to his hideout, the good detectives go through his rogue gallery to see who could have gotten to the Spirit, or at the very least, who can give them some answer. Elsewhere, the current head of police is pissed that his future replacement is taking all the credit for his work. We get to relive one of his earlier cases but, the answer stands, where is the Spirit? Again, he doesn't appear in this book but, it works. They are building up everything so, when he does appear, there is much more then him going after bad guys as everyone around him has something going on.
The Spirit (#1)
Due to back orders, I had to wait for issue one and two before I could read and review the other issues in the series. I was introduced to the character when I found his movie at Blockbuster for cheap (to my younger readers, I am not give you a history lesson on what that is!) and really enjoyed it. However, I'd continually mix him up to the Shadow and kinda lost track of him and his adventures from time to time. This new story begins 2 years after the disappearance or death (not sure) of the Spirit and the city is up for a lot of change while still asking what happened to him. Now, with 2 friends looking for him, will we finally get an answer? The story and art are great taking you back to the 30s and 40s with he look, language and feel while not having he title character appear at all. There is a mini retelling of the origin story for new readers and a bit of humor. There is a lot happening as you are sucked into the story that leaves you wanting to read more!
