This PVC set features three characters: The Spirit, crusty old Commissioner Dolan, and sultry siren Sand Saref. Sculpted by Tony Cipriano, of course. Tony has really nailed Will Eisner�s style in interpreting it as 3D, and the result is set of figures that any true Spirit fan will embrace. But that�s not all. We have created fourth figure from the classic comics, and are including it as part of the set in specially designed packaging. Who will it be?
This PVC set features three characters based on Will Eisner's The Spirit The Spirit, crusty old Commissioner Dolan, and sultry siren SandSaref as sculpted by Tony Cipriano, of course! Tony has really ""nailed""Will Eisner's style in interpreting it as 3-D, and the result is a set offigures that any true Spirit fan will embrace."The controversial cartoonist Rory Hayes was a self-taught dynamo of the SanFrancisco underground comics revolution. Attracting equal parts derision andpraise (the latter from the likes of R. Crumb and Bill Griffith), Hayes emergedas comics' great primitive, drawing horror comics in a genuinely horrifying andhalucinatory manner. He has influenced a generation of cartoonists, fromRAW to Fort Thunder and back again.This book, the first retrospective of Hayes' career ever published,features the best of his underground comics output alongside paintings, covers,and artifacts rarely seen by human eyesas well as astounding, previouslyunprinted comics from his teenage years and movie posters for his numeroushomemade films. The Comics and Art of Rory Hayes also serves as abiography and critique with a memoir of growing up with Rory by his brother, theillustrator Geoffrey Hayes, and a career-spanning essay by Edward Pouncey. Alsoincluded is a rare interview with Hayes himself.""Rory Hayes was the real thing; a genuine 'outsider' artist workingalongside his more self-aware compatriots in the heady days of the San FranciscoUnderground Comix scene of the 1960s and '70s. His work retains its raw,primitive power to this day, teetering precariously between chaos and control,madness and oddly endearing teddy bears.""Bill Griffith
