Read full description of the books:
Ok I'll admit it, I picked this book up because the art on the cover intrigued me, and when I saw that the art inside was similar to the front I had to read it. I am the kind of person that loves when the cover art matches the story art. Cause usually the cover looks amazing, but then we get into the book and it's either all done by a different artist, or multiple artists do different sections. Listen, I get it, you love collaborations in comics, sometimes that's awesome. But if you're making a trade paperback of a certain amount of [sections, chapters, whatever the hell you wanna call it] need to match. In my opinion they should match. Cause not every art style matches the tone of a story, and switching from one art style to another pulls me out of a story, and I don't care if it's only for a few seconds, I hate that.
So this is an attempt to revive the Spirit, yanno bring it back to modern audiences. Personally, I feel it's a good attempt. The initial introduction is very quick, it only takes a few pages, and it shows who The Spirit is, who's on his side, and who his enemies are. Now I'll admit, I haven't read the old Spirit comics for a long time, I only have vague recollections, so hardcore fans my be a bit more nitpicky with this.
The whole thing feels very rushed, like they're hurrying the story along; it almost feels like I've hit a fast forward button and am playing catch up on where The Spirit is these days. The plot buildup through the Angel Smerti arc was the most rushed part. The Spirit, as our protagonist, had most of the screen time so we understand his reasoning and connections the best; but when you introduce a villain to the audience who is a great foil for your protagonist you can't make them so vague. Angel whups our boys' butt and hands it back to him, she's been in this gig her whole life, she's ruthless and clever, and I just expected more from her character. She's written as very held back because she connected with Spirit, but we don't get to see that connection, we don't see why she would actually have the change of heart. We hurry past the character buildup to the action parts which then makes the "plot twists" feel like a cop out almost. The villain becomes the deus ex machina of sorts.
I wish they spent more time building the villains up as much as they do Spirit, I feel that would have made the story earn at least another star. If you want me to hate someone you can't just tell me it's the bad guy, you gotta, you have to show me why they deserve to be hated, and why it's so important that The Spirit is risking life and limb to take them down.
That was the main issue for this paperback; the pacing and character builduip was better for the Frost Bite arc, I'm not positive if it's cause they had a longer arc and thus could expand on the characters, or if it was thanks to a different author doing the planning, all I know is that I was far more invested in this part of the book. If the series is gunna follow more along this vein of the Frost Bite arc then I am definitely interested in more content.
