'The Spirit' is Looking Really, Really Bad

Though I've still never picked it up, I always hear how Will Eisner's The Spirit is a groundbreaking, must-read comic series for anyone at all interested in the medium. That information directly contradicts what I'm seeing in this fight scene that was shown at Comic Con, which paints The Spirit as a slapstick comedy with more getting-hit-with-objects-for-comedic-reactions than Home Alone. Also, it takes place in a sewage nebula? Just watch it.

The trombone slide was a nice touch, but I hope they aren't done with the CGI yet. This scene could use some tweeting birds circling their heads. (via TR)
