    >Spectre went to Gotham
    >Didn't immediately smite the entire city as he almost did in Gotham by Midnight
    Completely unrelated, but it was my first thought upon reading OP

    And a bonus extended preview of White Knight sequel were welcome pages.

    I don't know much about the Spectre, but was he always a seperate entity of the host body? I thought the host just became the Spectre, instead of Spectre flying out whenever he wants

    I hope the Spectre joins the JSA when they come back.

    >Corrigan taken
    Are you &^%$ing kidding me. The &^%$ing Spectre, the right hand of GOD can't sense him? WTF?

    Nu52 retcon, maybe? Spectre did behave differently in the older post-flashpoint mini

    Magic has logic, even divine magic. Same reason Spectre was effectively sidelined in Final Crisis.

    The Spectre has no place amongst superheroes.

    >Batman runs away?
    when is ever a good thing for a giant spectre to call for you like that ?

    Near the end of Ostrander's run, yes. Corrigan and Aztar became so different from one another that they could look at each other and talk but that only happened because of all the character development the pair got.
    Now they've just made the Wrath of God a Stand.

    i really love how the spectre and his swirls are drawn in this and that's a nice cape update

    As Specter punishments go at least this one was quick, unless that poor guy is now sentient blood that is.

    There is no internal logic, just writers writing stories they think are good enough for a comic.

    Tomasi isn't the greatest writer of all time but the work is usually average or above. The spectre has been shown to be vulnerable to magic (particularly pseudo kabala/Solomon/judeo-Christian magic) so we'll get an explanation even if it's not a great one.

    Anonymous 06/26/19(Wed)09:42:25 No.108369390
    So it's a cult worshipping Spectre?

    Anonymous 06/26/19(Wed)09:48:35 No.108369474
    He was sidelined because Vandal Savage had the Spear of Destiny, the Spectre's Kryptonite, and used it against him.

    beautiful art and finally spectre is back

    >that cover
    Didn't they tease a cover like this after Final Crisis and people thought DC was gonna bring Bruce back as the Spectre?

    >giant Spectre walking
    All I can think of is the Ghost Busters scene with the Stay Puft Marshmallow man

    After Crisis on Infinite Earths, Steve Gerber was supposed to write a Spectre series. He asked Wolfman (in CoIE), Moore (for Swamp Thing), and Thomas (Last Days of the JSA) to depower The Spectre because he wanted to write smaller stories.
    Then he never finished his scripts, visited the Howard the Duck movie set instead of writing, and got fired. Doug Moench was hired on to try to continue what Gerber had planned, and that resulted in a very weird Spectre series.
    In it, The Spectre and Corrigan were two distinct beings, and whenever the Spectre wanted out, it would cause Corrigan intense pain.

    Both of them had to reunite every 24 hours or they would both die.
    The Spectre himself was just as strong as a regular ghost. So no big punishments, just possessing doors and shit.

    Madame Xanadu with the exposition here.
    But like the other anon says, Tomasi should be well versed in Spectre lore. He was the assistant editor on Ostrander's run after the first year or so.

    Adding to >>108372326 the Spectre being able to separate from his host like this actually dates all the way back to the Golden Age near the end of his time in More Fun Comics. It's a lot older than Moench's take. Here's an explanation of it from the Silver Age.

    The Spectre's pretty crazy, but at least he isn't Stardust.
