Will Eisner’s The Spirit- Now Available in Pop-Up
On the dead body of a police officer the Spirit discovers a note with the name ‘Sand Saref,’ his lost childhood sweetheart. Saref has come to Central City peddling a deadly Nazi virus on the black market, but plans go awry when she is double-crossed by a scoundrel bent on destruction. In a twisted tale of betrayal the remorseful Spirit must bring his long-lost love to justice and find the virus before it’s too late.
The Spirit was first published during WWII. It has enjoyed a recent resurgence thanks to comic writers such as Darwyn Cooke. A film has just been released as well, written and directed by Frank Miller (who brought us Sin City and 300), and starring Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, and Eva Mendes, among others.
And now, a pop-up book! For fans of the Spirit and fans of the genre (Will Eisner is a comic legend – the most prestigious award in the comic world today is the Will Eisner Award), this is a must-have. It’s gorgeous and intriguing and might just become collectible.
