Starting today, the Spirit returns in an all-new ongoing series from writer Mark Schultz and artist Moritat. Central City destroys everyone who lives within its borders, so it's a good thing The Spirit's already experienced being dead, huh? The international crime syndicate known as The Golden Tree wants to help the devious Octopus consolidate his control over the underworld and the Spirit is the kind of mess the evil conglomerate was created to clean up. What chance does the vigilante have against one of The Golden Tree's deadliest assassins? Guess we'll find out...
Writer Paul Malmont and artist Howard Porter join forces to launch the Man of Bronze into his own ongoing series. And with Doc Savage the target of a brazen attack on New York City, you can be sure things don't start off slowly.

We were psyched when this piece of artwork found its way into our inbox, as we’ll sure you’ll be when you click on it. THE SPIRIT #1 hits in April.
