I quite enjoy anything with The Spectre in it. What I really loved about this book was the inner conflict Crispus Allen has. On one hand he acknowledges that The Spectre is killing off insanely guilty people but on the other hand is it right?

I bought this because a watched a cartoon of Spectre and enjoyed it. This was not the same Spectre as the cartoon I saw. I like the IDEA of Spectre. Vengence. That's great.
