The Spirit: Comic Book Disco
The Spirit titles in my collection. This will also include other titles by Will Eisner, including Blackhawk titles, since he introduced the character in the 1940's.
I was always curious about The Spirit, and started reading him when the DC Archives started coming out. There's a story called "Ten Minutes" that starts off, "This story will take you ten minutes to read." I timed it- it's practically to the second. That's an amazing bit of story construction. Made me a Will Eisner fan for life.
I was driving a forklift in a parking lot at work one day when my mom called me. "I was listening to NPR, and some guy from comics... Will ...Eisner I think was his name...died." I remember my jaw fell open and I felt like someone had just kicked me in the chest. This was how I found out that this comics giant had died? I was truly shocked to hear of his passing, and I think the fact that I was shocked left me even more shocked. Yes, I was a fan of Will Eisner, but I didn't expect his death to affect me so. It did though. We lost a great with him. -cb
The Escapist titles are included here, because The Spirit guest-starred in one issue. The TPB is here just to keep the two Escapist titles I have together.
