The Spirit movie is now out in theatres. It’s been out since Christmas, but I have not yet had a chance to see it. Unfortunately, the reviews are not that great.

However, The Spirit comics are timeless classics and well worth reading. The spirit was created by Will Eisner and was initially published as a Sunday comics insert in newspapers starting early in World War II. I have a few in my collection as well.

The Sunday inserts were popular for their groundbreaking stories and classic artwork. My favorite part is viewing the wonderful Eisner “covers” on the inserts.

Later, after World War II, and when Eisner completed his war service, he continued with The Spirit and eventually a standard sized comic book was published.

Today, DC is reprinting all the inserts, in chronological order as part of their Archives series. However, I suggest finding the originals for their wonderful art.
