Will Eisner's The Spirit: The Corpse-Makers #3

In the third issue of Francesco Francavilla's mini-series Will Eisner's The Spirit: The Corpse-Makers both the Spirit and plucky detective Lisa Marlowe continue investigating the odd case of disappearances and movements of a group accumulating lost souls for a dark purpose. Following a coroner's van to a warehouse, the Spirit stumbles onto a dark ritual and an entire room full of zombies. Just what is going on?

The latest issue spends more time with Marlowe, whose recent near-death experience hasn't shaken the young woman's resolve to get the bottom of the strange events. Although their paths have yet to cross, you would have to expect a meeting between the two investigators fairly soon. And given the number of questions both have, it may well take both the Spirit and Lisa Marlowe, P.I. to solve the case.
