The Spirit (8th Series)

    (Kitchen Sink, 1983-1992)
™ and ©1946, 1984 Will Eisner

The Spirit is the signature creation of comics pioneer Will Eisner. Ostensibly the adventures of a presumed-dead, masked crimefighter Denny Colt, The Spirit offered mystery, action, drama, romance, and humor in compact, eight-page vignettes that Eisner produced weekly from 1940 to 1952 as a supplement to Sunday newspapers. Eisner’s genius for graphic storytelling, heavy atmosphere, characterization, and razor wit made The Spirit a timeless classic that has thrilled and inspired generations of comic readers.

Modern audiences got their first look at the Spirit after a gap of nearly 20 years when underground publisher Kitchen Sink brought out two issues of black-and-white reprints (with new covers by Eisner) in 1973. This eventually led to a complete reprinting of The Spirit series in magazine form.
