DescriptionWill Eisner - Spirit Splash Page 1 Original Art, dated 11-10-46 (Des Moines Register and Tribune Syndicate, 1946). The late Will Eisner is celebrated as one of the comic book field's most important artists. From the dawn of comic books in the thirties until his life's end in 2005, Eisner never rested on his laurels, and kept working to further his art. Small wonder that the comics field named an annual awards ceremony after the cartooning titan. The Spirit was a unique hybrid, both a syndicated strip and a comic book! Eisner often filled the splash pages of his feature with radical title logo treatments -- each was a unique masterpiece of design. He once noted that his approach to the logos had been influenced by George Herriman's Krazy Kat with its playful backgrounds. This stunning montage sets the scene for an Spirit adventure in South America, and the overlapping map, Spirit logo-marker, symbolic skull, and background figures open the yarn in a way typical of Eisner. Will Eisner taught the techniques he had developed in masterworks such as this in his seminal textbook, Graphic Storytelling. The image area of the page is 13" x 16", and the condition of the art is Excellent.
