The Barrel of a Gun

The Comic

This comic was a 16 page full size comic that was inserted into newspapers back in the 1940's. This issue as many in the beginning featured the Spirit as the main story but also had two additional stories for characters Lady Luck and Mr. Mystic.

The Spirit

The Spirit is the main story and is longer that the other two. This is a pinnacle issue because the relationship between the Spirit and Commissioner Dolan changed when the Spirit is accused of murder and is forced to confess to the crime he didn't commit. This changes his whole relationship with the New York City police.

We also find out that the Spirit has a very rare A-1 blood type. He has to go to a unfriendly city that is searching for him so he can save a young woman's life who shares the same blood type. This will not be the same for the Spirit after this story.

This issue features the Spirit but has two other shorter stories one with Lady Luck and the other with Mr. Mystic.  This issue was not the best. Even the Spirit story was lacking a little. Over all the book gets three-and-a-half stars. The art is really good as usual but the stories fall flat. The one big thing is t...
