Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vintage and vital...

In the 60 years since his first appearance, the Spirit and his creator, Will Eisner, have both become legends. Perhaps no other writer/artist has received more admiration and acclaim from critics, readers, and comics professionals.

The Spirit has never been collected complete, in color, and in a uniform format. With Will Eisner's The Spirit Archives, this legendary strip is at last presented in a manner it has deserved for so very long: a series of deluxe hardcover volumes with the strips painstakingly restored and faithfully recolored, featuring every Spirit story ever produced in its initial run re-presented in chronological order.

Now, longtime devotees and new readers alike have a chance to own one of comics' true classics — Will Eisner's The Spirit, a work comprising equal elements of beauty and importance to this art form we call comics.

Review:

"To this day, The Spirit remains not only a stunning body of work, but an essential lesson in what comics are, and what they can do." Frank Miller, writer/artist of The Dark Knight Returns

Review:

"The Spirit still crackles with the energy of an artist consumed with the excitement of cascading new ideas. Inspired by the Hollywood noir movies of the period, Eisner brought something brand new into the world — not 'movies-on-paper,' but picture-writing that keeps moving in your head." Art Spiegelman, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer/artist of Maus

Review:

"The Citizen Kane of comics." USA Today

Synopsis:

The Spirit returns for the third volume in this archival series! In it, Will Eisner's classic crimefighter of the 1940s continues to face off against enemy agents on the homefront. This volume includes an appearance by the sultry Silk Satin, as well as the Spirit's developing relationship with Police Commissioner Dolan and his beautiful daughter Ellen.
