This insipid attempt is an example of the previous statement - the opening sequences not being particularly well done in order to introduce the Spirit as a menace to organised crime. The story gallops along with the Octopus (a mysterious gangleader) employing the services of an assassin to knock off the Spirit. The assassin turns out to be a woman (now why wasn't that a surprise?) and Denny Colt is treated as a male chauvinist who, in true fashion and following a kiss, has the assassin turning over a new leaf and trying to rescue him. It comes off bland, lacking the Eisner's creative turn in making this believable. Dolan and Ellen are just forgettable and Ebony, now a girl, is also lacklustre. The artwork is messy, looking like a hybrid version of Frank Miller's style.
I highly enjoyed the First Wave Spirit, especially after the previous series DC did (following Darwin Cook's departure) wound up just... not that good.
Can be enjoyed, even without any knowledge of the First Wave universe.
