The unusual team-up between The Spirit and The Rocketeer continues as the pair of heroes investigate the odd murder of a Central City man whose body was impossibly found in Los Angeles without enough time for it to be transported there under any conventional means. The autopsy reveals that isn’t the only thing shocking about their victims whose innards seem scrambled beyond comprehension and the man’s spirit seems to have somehow gotten trapped inside a television.
While dealing with these facts The Spirit and his new friend also have to take on an air assault on The Rocketeer’s home base which puts Central City’s hero high above the ground in action without the luxury of jet-pack or parachute.
Writer Mark Waid and and new artist Loston Wallace showcase each of the heroes’ girls as Ellen shares a tender moment with Cliff and one of the mini-series’ villains finally shows his face to offer Betty a starring role on this newfangled television contraption. Worth a look.
