    Alyssa Wong’s script is excellent as always, but Haining’s art is what really brings this comic to life. It’s amazing how the Spirit World can be this beautiful, and the demons this horrifying and surreal, all within the same pages.

    Spirit World #3 is a breath of fresh air and goes to show how wonderfully limitless and at times terrifying the magical world of DC can be. The group of Xanathe, Constantine, and Batgirl is one of those team-ups that seems delightful on paper, but writer Alyssa Wong makes sure the trio lives up to its potential brilliantly. The book presents genuine stakes and tension and pairs it with a lighthearted and almost playful tone, and it’s a mix that works wonders when combined with the vibrant and bombastic artwork by Haining, Sebastian Cheng, and Janice Chiang. The book’s villain can’t help but raise the creep factor, and the book hits hard with several revelatory moments throughout. Spirit World is off to a fantastic start, and issue #3 is a prime example of why.

    But Why Tho?

    As far as I can tell, Wong has a hit with Spirit World #3. I’m hoping this title brings in a robust readership. Praying the love Americans have for manga will translate into a love of this new hero and their amazing adventures. So please, support Spirit World! Show it all your geeky love. Three issues in, and I feel the sky’s the limit. Let’s soar.

    I hate to say it, but this series has a huge pacing issue. It only took three issues for Batgirl and Xanthe’s storylines to wrap up. The story went from escaping the Spirit World and getting to the bottom of Xanthe’s memory loss, to saving the Spirit World and getting to the bottom of Cassie’s memory loss in two issues. For example, a series like Digimon Adventure sets a goal of getting to “File Island” over several episodes, and their goal complicates when they learn about Devimon, split up, and invest in the digital world. Regardless of any of their new goals, the story still hinges wanting to go home safely. Conversely, Spirit World moves the goal post entirely. Don’t get me wrong, I like the art and fun cast of characters, but if you have to repilot so soon, there might not be anything here at all.
