Description

    Will Eisner The Spirit #16 Cover Original Art (Quality, 1949). The Spirit newspaper sections that ran in selected Sunday papers were also collected in regular comic book form, published by Quality Comics with specially-created covers by artist/writer Will Eisner. The original art to these Quality Eisner covers has, for the most part, been lost to time. Eisner historian Denis Kitchen knew of only two still in existence, both stashed away in private collections; this third piece was not widely known until now. The owner did, however, get it in front of Mr. Eisner at some point, who added a bold signature to the lower right corner. The image area measures approximately 14" x 19.5", and has been professionally matted and framed to an overall size of 19.5" x 25.5". The art includes the original masthead and Quality Comics logo stat; it shows some minor creasing along the center from an old fold, but otherwise is in Excellent condition. From the Martin Greim Collection.
