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. But he only works after someone dies? He only avenges death with death. There's nothing else to the story there. I can see if I continue to read these I would probably be disappointed, unless the dead human can somehow control Spectre. It's hinted but nothing is ever explained.
