Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Revival Christmas day 2008 introduced movie goers to one of the most important and iconic comic book characters ever created : Will Eisner's "The Spirit". The movie was stylish but flawed in trying to transfer Eisner's unique drawing and story telling to the silver screen. Likewise, DC comics revamped this 1940's classic by handing the character over to Darwyn Cooke. Once again the results were mixed. Cooke's artwork is nowhere near as good as Eisner's, and the opening splash pages which are the trademark of the "Spirit" lacked the artistic complexity of the originals. But, Cooke is still a fine artist and there still radiates a genuine love and admiration for the character. The writing fares much better. Cooke strikes a nice balance between vintage pulpy crime idioms and contemporary narrative flair. The effort is overall a nice revival of a vital Golden Age character and definately superior to the film version.
