This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, we take a look at Jim Aparo and Michael Fleisher’s run on the Spectre in Adventure Comics #431-440 – The Wrath of the Spectre!

One of DCs most powerful and terrifying characters has been the Spectre, the wrath of the Lord made manifest. Since his introduction in 1940, the Spectre has chilled villains to their marrow and protected the innocent from things worse than death.

    I love these issues. Moody, creppy, and just plain terrifying. Aparo’s artwork here is nothing short of phenomenal. Fleischer’s writing is likewise great for the Spectre. Reading this in the Showcase Black & White adds to the horror, and helps the ’70s horror feel. It’s real easy to see where the Spectre animated short took its inspiration.
