More Eisner goodness. Some of these stories don't hold up very well plot-wise. You can feel the pressure of the eight-page limit closing in on stories that need more room to breathe. And some things that may have seemed funny in 1941 are now just painful to read. Overall, though, these stories are still top notch. One quality that doesn't come through as much in Eisner's later work, with which readers may be more familiar, is his sense of humor. Some of the Spirit stories get quite silly indeed, ...more

This volume goes early into The Spirit series and every story is amazing. Will Eisner had a three-dimensional perspective on his hero. Stories are told from his sidekick's perspective, two kids standing by the sidelines, a bunch of homeless tramps, a Spanish troubadour, and even a Thanksgiving turkey. There's never been another noir comic strip like The Spirit. Will Eisner has clearly earned his reputation.

More comic book gold.
Will Eisner deserves every bit of praise he gets and the Spirit is basically a masterclass on how to do a continuing series and how to experiment with the medium.

And, on top of that, it's a great read.
