The first animated short in the DC Showcase series focuses on a detective story with an ethereal twist, featuring the otherworldly character originally introduced by DC Comics in 1940.

First off Iíll say that the The Spectre short is really quite fantastic. It appears to take place in the 1970s and features the same kind of old film effects that Grindhouse boasted. It also reminded me a lot of Spawn: The Animated Series, both in terms of the violence as well as just the general animation style (the animation of which was handled by Moi). Itís barely over 11 minutes long so thereís not much to talk about, but it was definitely an engaging little story. The story definitely was well worth checking out.
