Young TV news journalist Ginger Coffee is abducted ON AIR moments before speaking with a mob informant, prepared to bring down the crime sydicate. The Spirit rushes to save her, as do the police. However, she has made a call to the station and left the line open, and the station is playing the audio on air. Unfortunately for our hero, the kidnapper happens to be watching. It becomes a race: who will get to The Spirit and Ginger first, the Cops or the Mob?
This is Darwyn Cooke's attempt to tell the tales of a man we know and love, Will Eisner's The Spirit.
