Why Aren't You Reading the Spirit?

Seriously. It's one of the best comics out there and it's by Darwyn Cooke, for whom all of you comic book readers out there should have a hard on for thanks to Batman Beyond and the New Frontier. He's just awesome. If you're not familiar with the series, it's about a man named the Spirit who solves crime in Central City. Might sound a bit like Batman but really it's a story of a normal man who is presumed dead and decides to make the most of his death by taking on the persona of the Spirit, who solves crime with the help of a few friends. It retains a 1950s look but takes place in the current day and the characters are updated slightly with the times but for the most part it's Eisner returned from the grave. Check it out.
