As a huge Doc Savage, Shadow, Avenger and, of course, Spirit fan, this story from ComicBookResources.com‘s Jeffrey Renaud sounds pretty exciting:
Besides Doc Savage and The Batman, other classic heroes inhabiting this world include The Spirit, the Avenger and Rima the Jungle Girl.
“The Avenger is dark. He’s a twisted character. His motivations come from… they don’t come from a good place,” explained Brian Azzarello. “And The Spirit is so much of that time. Will Eisner created that character and he was riffing on a lot of stuff. And with The Spirit, now we get to riff on some modern stuff.
“I’ve got the blessing of the Eisner estate to take The Spirit in a different direction. Not just The Spirit, but also Batman and Doc Savage and we’re tweaking all these characters to sort of make their stories work together in one universe.”
