About this title

Synopsis:

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.

Born from shadow and mystery, Will Eisner's deathless hero returns in a recreation of The Spirit's final two issues. Coinciding with Frank Miller's upcoming Spirit movie, Will Eisner's The Spirit: A Pop-Up Graphic Novel spins a noir tale of blackmail, murder, and espionage innovatively crafted into seven full-color pop-up spreads. Reborn, The Spirit breaks out of the conventional comic book frame, animating the vigor and dynamism of Eisner's original vision. Designed by renowned paper engineer Bruce Foster (creator of The Pop-up Book of Celebrity Meltdowns and designer of the Caldecott nominated Little Red Riding Hood) Will Eisner's The Spirit: A Pop-Up Graphic Novel comes alive with expansive panoramic cityscapes, three-dimensional action sequence pop-outs, frame-by-frame expanding mini-booklets, and scene change pullouts. Re-colored and ingeniously renovated, the novel design animates the vigorous action of the Spirit's final exploits with an inventiveness merited by Eisner's original imagination. From the noir aficionado to the comic zealot, fans will celebrate this renaissance of Eisner's masterpiece, heralding the interactive ingenuity of a new format for sequential art.

About the Author:

Dubbed the "Most influential comic book artist of all time," Will Eisner began his professional comic career at the age of nineteen. Over the next 68 years he changed the world of comics, fathering the graphic novel and expanding the literary potential of the genre. The highest award in the world of comics is aptly named the Will Eisner Award. With the first issues of The Spirit in 1940 Eisner began to differentiate his work, creating gritty characters shaped by the vice and violence of their urban worlds. Eisner's acclaimed work on The Spirit served as the definitive prototype for the graphic novel--a phrase he would later coin. His notable graphic novels and work includes: Sundiata: A Legend of Africa, Moby Dick, A Contract with God, and the academic work Graphic Storytelling and Visual Narrative.
