Synopsis

The Spectre is condemned to carrying the Journal of Judgement to atone for his sin in taking a life. Spectre is to pass judgment on the people in the Book.

Notes

Inks and letters credits from Mark Evanier via the GCD Error Tracker. Ted Watson suggests Jerry Grandenetti letters through comparison with lettering in #6 which said to be by Jerry Grandenetti, but this is denied by Evanier. Evanier says some, but not all lettering is by Oda and none by Grandenetti.

Page 9 is a 2/3-page.

Synopsis

Foost sells his soul to the Devil to become a real magician.

Notes

The Spectre becomes a minor character in his own book. This represents a re-thinking of the direction that was indicated in the previous issue. The Spectre serves as little more than narrator in this story and the following ones.
