Will Eisner's legendary hero The Spirit returns for a monumental meeting with the Dark Knight in this special one-shot event written by comics luminaries Jeph Loeb (SUPERMAN/ BATMAN) & Darwyn Cooke (DC: THE NEW FRONTIER) with art by Cooke & J. Bone!
When the American Criminologist Association holds its annual convention, its members are unaware that America's criminals are holding a gathering of their own. And when Batman's rogue gallery joins forces with the Spirit's colorful criminals, things can only get worse!
With dozens of villains on the loose and the nation's security at stake, two very different crimefighters must come together to save the day. Guest-starring just about everyone from the supporting casts of both comic-book icons - including Robin, Catwoman, the Joker, Ebony, P'Gell, Commissioner Dolan and more - this is an historic comics event you won't want to miss!

Darwyn Cooke's reimagining of The Spirit continues! The Spirit is confronted by his old nemesis, P'Gell, who has designs on a wealthy member of an Arab royal family, Prince Farouk.

The Spirit is on the trail of a master criminal in a Mexican bordertown. But the tables are soon turned, and he's on the run, now chained to the seductive Silk Satin, a CIA agent also tracking the villain. Can our duo make their escape from the ever-spreading tentacles of…The Octopus?

THE SPIRIT #5
Written by Darwyn Cooke
Art by Cooke & J. Bone
Cover by Cooke
The Spirit's likeness has been hijacked and slapped on a rather unappetizing little product called "Spirit Pork & Beans Spread," much to our hero's chagrin. The culprit is one Mr. Carrion, an eccentric con artist. But it seems Mr. C is in over his head this time after he's paid a visit by a decidedly more brutal member of the Spirit's rogues gallery…

THE SPIRIT #6
Written by Darwyn Cooke
Art by Cooke & J. Bone
Cover by Cooke
A young musician's life changes dramatically when he stumbles across a fallen meteor with a strange light emanating from it - bathed in its eerie glow he finds his musical abilities enhanced...and his skin color changed to blue! Things are coming up roses for our young friend until people start turning up dead, and an odd shade of blue. Time for the Spirit to intervene!
