    Will Eisner The Spirit Planche 1 - 29 janvier 1950 (Register and Tribune Syndicate, 1950). La première page de l'histoire Ratt Trap présente une image du visage du Spirit qui est devenue un classique du 9e Art. L'art inventif d'Eisner, et son sens aigu de la mise en page et du design, ont fait que le Spirit s'est immédiatement démarqué des autres personnages de son époque. Cette planche, réalisée à l'encre de Chine sur carton Bristol, présente une surface d'image de 51 x 33 cm. La case insérée et les corrections de texte sont des collages. Des corrections à la gouache blanche sont également présentes. Les informations d'en-tête et le logo étaient des collages qui sont désormais manquants, laissant des résidus de colle. Très bon état.

    Will Eisner The Spirit (weekly newspaper insert) Splash Page 1 Original Art dated 1-29-50 (Register and Tribune Syndicate, 1950). The first page of the story "Ratt Trap" features a classic image of the Spirit's face. Eisner's bold art and keen sense of layout and design made The Spirit stand out from all of its contemporary comic companions. Created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 20" x 13". The inset panel is a paste-up, and there are text correction paste-ups as well. The art also has whiteout art corrections in places. The header info and logo were all paste-ups and they are now missing, leaving glue residue behind. In Very Good condition.

    Estimate $15,000-$18,000
