Interesting! I’m a sucker for the old school (i.e. non-goateed, Jim Corrigan) Spectre.

I like the new guy, too, although I don’t remember his name. He seemed like one of the better character updates recently.

Argo Plummer writes:  

I believe the new Spectre is Crispus Allen from the Batman line, most notably Gotham Central. I do enjoy him as the Spectre (more than Hal Jordan) but Jim Corrigan will always be the Spectre in my mind. I’m a sucker for all “Earth-2″ (pre-crisis Earth-2, not the current Earth-2) characters.

Can’t wait to get the DVD and see this along with the feature.
