    This is one ugly, scary mess.I had a sense this was going to be brutal, when the plot synopsis for the previous 4 issues ran two pages Two pages without pictures Oh my The Spectre s been around since the 1940 s and has always been a formidable and powerful super hero Once he was able to keep two different planet Earth s from colliding In another story, he s able to predict and influence the future In another, he was able to make party animals from balloons Really scary party animals Here, This is one ugly, scary mess.I had a sense this was going to be brutal, when the plot synopsis for the previous 4 issues ran two pages Two pages without pictures Oh my The Spectre s been around since the 1940 s and has always been a formidable and powerful super hero Once he was able to keep two different planet Earth s from colliding In another story, he s able to predict and influence the future In another, he was able to make party animals from balloons Really scary party animals Here, he s on a vengeance spree, or justice spree or a creative punishing death spree or something He s no longer Jim Corrigan, but Crispus Allen, but Allen doesn t have full control of him It seems Allen was murdered by Jim Corrigan Not the Spectre s previous alias, but another, different Jim Corrigan What the hell was DC editorial drinking when they let that factoid slip by is anybody s guess It s Gotham City and Batman is up to his cowl in crime and now mystical, magical, murderous mayhem is added to the ledger Instead of pulling up his Bat Depends and pointing The Spectre in the direction of The Joker, the Bats has words with The Spectre Harsh words and gets in a lucky kick.Because The Spectre is incorporeal It s a really, really lucky kick.The Phantom Stranger shows up but instead of, well, saving people from getting butchered, he tells Mr Allen to man Spectre up and take charge.This creepy assed comic s unifying story is about a murder committed in a tenement building and has an Agatha Christie twist if Christie wrote cozy demonic splatter mysteries.Bottom Line The Spectre as a character seems like it s been a dumping ground for decades for whatever power set DC wants to give him du jour For lovers of the Saw movies or for those of you who enjoyed the time that Hal Jordan Green Lantern was bonded with the Spectre or anybody who just likes terrifying and obtuse comics

    I quite enjoy anything with The Spectre in it What I really loved about this book was the inner conflict Crispus Allen has On one hand he acknowledges that The Spectre is killing off insanely guilty people but on the other hand is it right Every bone in my fiber says that it is but then I get this one little thought in the back of my mind Why does The Spectre get to judge Couldn t he just save the innocents from a horrible death Or does he get off from killing the guilty That s why I lo I quite enjoy anything with The Spectre in it What I really loved about this book was the inner conflict Crispus Allen has On one hand he acknowledges that The Spectre is killing off insanely guilty people but on the other hand is it right Every bone in my fiber says that it is but then I get this one little thought in the back of my mind Why does The Spectre get to judge Couldn t he just save the innocents from a horrible death Or does he get off from killing the guilty That s why I love The Spectre and Crispus Allen together because Crispus Allen on the one hand wants to save the innocents but can t and on the other hand he sometimes takes pleasure in killing the guilty It s a thin line between good and evil, between right and wrong, who s to judge

    I bought this because a watched a cartoon of Spectre and enjoyed it This was not the same Spectre as the cartoon I saw I like the IDEA of Spectre Vengence That s great But he only works after someone dies He only avenges death with death There s nothing else to the story there I can see if I continue to read these I would probably be disappointed, unless the dead human can somehow control Spectre It s hinted but nothing is ever explained.

    Goofy, fun throwback I was obsessed with this series in 2006, without knowing the background or that I was actually reading a re boot A fun read for any half hearted comic graphic novel fan.

    Like the other volume of this series, this could have been something great and instead fell flat.

    Sob argumento de David Lapham, o Espectro redefinido como habitando o esp rito de um pol cia afro americano cuja revolta perante as injusti as alimenta a viol ncia vingativa do personagem mas cujo toque humano o nico limite megalomania, numa hist ria recheada de crimes com castigos t tricos.
