    The Spirit by Darwyn Cooke

    For those with an interest in comics, Darwyn Cooke's name should not be unfamiliar. He has done the art and writing for many notable stories such as Justice League: The New Frontier and Batman: Ego. His artistic style has the feeling of vintage noir-esque art for the characters while his action scenes and settings are full of life and intensity. Cooke's take on Will Eisner's beloved Spirit character is phenomenal. He stays true to the heart of Eisner's stories while managing to make the characters and stories believable for the modern age. One important point to note is that in the original Eisner versions the Spirit's sidekick, an African-American boy named Ebony, was very stereotypical of the racial views of the 40's. Eisner would portray Ebony as almost a "black face" looking character (oversize pink lips and a small black face). He was also portrayed as more of a timid character. Cooke's version is very different. Ebony (whom is frequently simply called "Ebs") is portrayed in a physically accurate way (for a comic book) and his personality is more of a street smart, intelligent friend to the Spirit rather than a mere sidekick. The stories, characters and art are all phenomenal. If you enjoy superheroes without any superpowers and have yet to be jaded by Frank Miller's movie adaptation then Darwyn Cooke's The Spirit is highly recommended.
