Goodbye Spirit

The Spirit #12
Writer & Artist: Darwyn Cooke, Inks: J. Bone, Colors: Dave Stewart

This gorgeous panel  is completely saturated, with great help from Dave Stewart’s desaturated, virtually monotone, color except for that red tie. Everything is wet.

A great end to Cooke’s The Spirit. He has managed to reference Will Eisner throughout while making The Spirit very much his own piece of work, no small achievement. I doubted he could pull it off at first, but issue after issue this series has had the inventive story telling and quality illustration that the  original had.

These 12 issues are going to make a great read in trade paperback. While I wish the new creative team the best of luck, I can’t help but feel it is the end of an new era for The Spirit.
