Will Eisner and Wally Wood The Spirit Weekly Newspaper Section Story Page 4 Original Art dated 8-31-52 (Eisner, 1952). A stirring example of an epic collaboration: Eisner and Wood, giants of the medium, teamed to cosmic effect on an extended outer-space serial, late in the run of The Spirit as a syndicated newspaper-insert feature. Eisner's inspired choice of Wood as a ghost-artist proved more a collaborative affiliation, what with the patent influence of Eisner on layouts and breakdowns; a few pure-Eisner faces (third and forth panels); and a dominant Wood presence in the inking, mechanical shading, lettering, and one emphatic sound effect. This is a rare offering, inasmuch as such pieces tend to remain in private hands for many years. Signed (Eisner) at lower margin. Eisner's copyright stamp appears on the reverse. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with white-on-black Zipatone shading. Marginal adhesive staining. An image area of 13" x 18", in Excellent condition.
