WILL EISNER'S THE SPIRIT ARCHIVES VOL. 9
The comprehensive, multiple award-winning collection of Will Eisner's indelible creation, The Spirit, continues with THE SPIRIT ARCHIVES Volume Nine — a 204-page hardcover reprinting the newspaper Spirit sections from July 2 to December 31, 1944. At this point in time, Eisner had been spirited away by the United States Army for the duration of World War II. But while he was gone, the Spirit strips were executed by the more-than-capable members of Eisner's staff: writers Manly Wade Wellman and William Woolfolk, and legendary artists Lou Fine and Jack Cole!Together they produced the further adventures of The Spirit, Ebony, Commissioner Dolan and Ellen: a mysterious murder at the circus (with a Bengal tiger tossed in for good measure); a Leading Lady facing death in the footlights; the secret of a sinister shipwreck; the return of the super-spy Satin; the frightful Dread Dragon Society; the mysterious Metal Monsters; the murder of society climber Miss Meda; and much more!Plus, this hardcover features a portfolio section of artwork produced by Eisner for the Army during WW II!
