Ah the Spectre, I have a soft spot for this charachter, and that origin does sound similar to the one in Phantom Stranger 0 but done much better than the rushed version we got in that comic.

Is there any reason why the Spectre looks so much like Dr. Doom?

Great classic. In a way its best that it isn't modern. There is a balance to the gore in Spectre. It doesn't distract from the characters faces and other reactions in the scenes. These days you can have founts of blood and the artist leaving the characters with their faces etched in dull surprise.

Hope you don't have more troubles with your internet in the near future. Heck I hope you never have internet troubles but gotta be realistic a bit.

I don't think the Spectre would appreciate being in a collection of the "damned"; that... is for his enemies *cue maniacal laughter*.

I read some of the more ghastly comics featuring the Spectre via old issues of DC Presents when I was probably a bit too young for them, but that only galvanized my interest in the character.

Very nostalgic review for me.

I've been curious with all that make up I'm guessing you filmed several of these longboxes at a time. So how many do you do at a time?

As many as I can. The problem with this process is time - I need time to edit, time to read, time to write, time to film. The first shooting I filmed about 11 or so Longboxes, the second 6, and now the latest batch 7. I'll have to do one more to complete the month, but it shouldn't be too difficult now that I've got it down to a system.

Is The Spectre a sort of prototype to The Crow in a way?

Either way, this guy sounds cool.

@Rhodoferax
The Spectre has been around since the 1940's. Doom since the 60's.
So it's the other way around.

The Crow comes back for justice on personal scores. Aside from that there do appear to be some parallels. In a way that is why the Crow TV series didn't make much sense to me.

Ah yes, the spectre, the hand of god. ive always liked, this, as unlike most other heroes who kill, he actually explored why? he could kill and still be a hero, or at least he did in his third volume, which i personally regard as perhaps th greates obscure superhero run ever.

i assume we arent going to see his third volume this year, but maybe if the longbox returns for 2013...(which it should,DONT listen the trolls linkara, the longbox and its chilling host are volcome additions to your library :) )

I know a Jim Corrigan.
That's all.

(Okay, one more: Yes, he has heard of the comic character. I've asked.)

"The first shooting I filmed about 11 or so Longboxes, the second 6, and now the latest batch 7. I'll have to do one more to complete the month, but it shouldn't be too difficult now that I've got it down to a system."

My maths is weird. For one thing, it's plural.
But from that, I get that you have 7 left.

So I've heard that appearantly hungarian accent is often used for horror characters... made me wonder what Moarte's is based of. :)
(And also if I might have a similar accent. xD)
