    Description

    Will Eisner The Spirit Weekly Newspaper Section Story Page 4 Original Art dated 3-7-48 (Register and Tribune Syndicate, 1948). When Jim Steranko needed a classic Spirit story to reprint in his History of Comics, this is the one he chose! Dynamic points of view, shadowy film noir lighting, inventive montages to create a "voiceover narration" ... just another day at the office for Will Eisner. Our consignor acquired this from the artist back in the early 80s and has held onto it until today. Signed at lower right. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 15" x 21". Glue staining and pinholes. Very Good condition. Provenance: This piece was purchased directly from Will Eisner by the consignor in 1983 and comes with a copy of the Bill of Sale.

    More Information: Edit: Added info regarding provenance.
