Abstract:

In 1940, master comics artist Will Eisner stepped away from producing monthly comic books to create something new: a weekly newspaper comics supplement staring a character called the Spirit. A former police detective, the Spirit embarked on a trailblazing journey of adventure that continued into the early 1950s, bringing him into conflict with countless criminals, and scientists, and unforgettable femmes fatales, as well as ordinary citizens unwittingly caught in a web of crime. THE SPIRIT had a fantastic stylistic range, from humorous to romantic to deadly -- but always with a focus on crime, in moody, innovative, and highly atmospheric tales that are still revered by comics professional and fans today.
