Will Eisner's The Spirit #6

The latest issue of Will Eisner's The Spirit delves into the Spirit's missing two years from Central City. The first third of the comic is presented from a the point of view of a former soldier turned mercenary in the South Pacific on a small island known as Nawala Pulo where he job for two years was to be the jailer for a single prisoner. Teasing us with only glimpses of our hero, the introduction works to continue to deepen the mystery of who imprisoned the hero and why.

The remainder of the comic, other than a few panels dealing with the Dolans reacting to the hero's return, is presented from our the Spirit's point of view recounting his imprisonment and escape to Ebony White and Sammy Strunk. Although he knows even less about his circumstances than his former jailer, the Spirit was able to learn a name which is the only clue he has.

Will Eisner's The Spirit #6 gives us what little information our hero has about his missing two years and our first look a new mysterious woman to the Spirit's stable of femme fatales as it continues to tease us with the name Mikado Vaas. Worth a look.
