    I dunno. I liked it a bunch.

    I loved the banter between the two (and Margo's little cameo).

      Issue #2 is out...

      Artist Andrea Mutti really needs to do some period research. On the very first page in panel 1, we are shown what appears to be a very modern hospital, with buildings entirely glass-faced. Then in panel 4, we see a nurse in a miniskirt obviously much too short for the time period. Panels 2, 3, and 4 show a modern automatic elevator (complete with plastic backlit up/down arrow indicators) instead of an old-fashioned elevator with an operator. The automobiles were nicely researched and drawn, but that's about all she did. Most of the incidental characters look fine (although she seems to have problems drawing hats), but her interpretations of Black Sparrow and Miss Fury are both very dull, un-dynamic, and unsexy-looking, which would seem to be missing the whole point of starring them together in a series. It does make you appreciate how important artist Jack Herbert was to making Miss Fury's own series work. Unfortunately, as I feared, it appears that The Shadow is out of the story from this issue forward.

      Since Victor Gischler's storyline has failed to capture my interest in the first 2 issues, I guess I'll be dropping the book from my pull list.

        Its great to see Black Sparrow back, she's an awesome character. Nice start to this series, I wouldn't mind seeing it as an ongoing, myself.

          I didn't buy the issue, but maybe this was a modern (for then), more art deco style building with futuristic conveniences?

            Went back and re-read #1 last night, wondering if maybe I'd be more interested in this series after six months or so. But, no, all the things that bothered me originally still were annoying now.

            So much for a good sounding concept . . . the execution was a failure.
