The Rocketeer & The Spirit: Pulp Friction #2The 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.

Hi! Just wanted to point out that the artist is no longer Paul Smith. It is Loston Wallace. If you looked at the cover page showing with your review, the names are clearly listed at the bottom. Perhaps you should actually read the comic? Thanks!

Thanks for the catch. I forgot to double-check the artist when I copied over the artist/writer fields from the last issue as it didn’t even occur to me that a mini-series would switch artists only one issue in. My accidental error was one of omission which I will gladly accept over purposeful rudeness any day of the week.
