    Will Eisner and Jerry Grandenetti The Spirit Section Story Page 1 Original Art dated 7-27-47 (Des Moines Register & Tribune Syndicate, 1947). Ebony White, sidekick of the crime-busting Spirit, stars in Eisner's Arabian Nights riff titled "The Lamp". Unique backward placement of the Spirit logotype, with the very face of the Spirit hovering as if in a cloud of smoke. Eisner is celebrated as one of the comics' most important artists, memorialized in the industry's annual Eisner Awards. The Spirit Section was a unique hybrid -- both a syndicated strip and a comic book. This page contains a photostatic page-indicator from the Philadelphia Inquirer. A blank space below the Philadelphia type would have accommodated the customary Spirit Section logotype. The image area measures 13" x 19". A slight tear, accompanied by a tape-stain, appears at upper border. In Very Good condition.
