Synopsis: A full moon killer is on loose. Irenka “Gypsy” Vlcek is related to the killer. Underworld is rule by The Bull. The Spirit don’t want to burn his fingertips but wants to catch the killer. And The Boss.
Comment: High quality B&W black line artwork as we used to get from the master these days. Story by Strnad is fine and funny.
Humour: You can find from page 7 a hommage to the Corben’s own werewolf oldie: Rowlf (cf. page 6 from the Conclusion of the original). The frame structures are similar, though the action starts from the last frame of page 6 of “The Moon”. The extreme closeup frame is not on a girl but a full moon killer, and The Spirit version is more funnier, aware of the connection to the oldie.
