The Rocketeer & The Spirit: Pulp Friction #3

The third issue of The Rocketeer & The Spirit: Pulp Friction #3 moves the investigation back to Central City where Cliff follows Betty after she is given her first big break as a television star but, sadly, not by someone who actually has her best interests at heart.

Along with offering the opportunity for The Spirit to play host to The Rocketeer (and scare the hell out of Cliff when he discovers just who and what The Spirit really is) the third issue of the mini-series also gives us a look at how the villains plan to use television not just to broadcast signals but people and objects across great distances.

Of course there is still a problem with the teleporting power of the signal. Although Betty's insides aren't scrambled like those of the poor victim who found himself in California, her mind is emptied allowing her to be the perfect pawn of and the Octopus and Trask who turn poor Betty into another of The Spirit's femme fatales and set her loose on the hero. Worth a look.
