About the Author
Dubbed the "Most influential comic book artist of all time," Will Eisner began his professional comic career at the age of nineteen. Over the next 68 years he changed the world of comics, fathering the graphic novel and expanding the literary potential of the genre. The highest award in the world of comics is aptly named the Will Eisner Award. With the first issues of The Spirit in 1940 Eisner began to differentiate his work, creating gritty characters shaped by the vice and violence of their urban worlds. Eisner's acclaimed work on The Spirit served as the definitive prototype for the graphic novel--a phrase he would later coin. His notable graphic novels and work includes: Sundiata: A Legend of Africa, Moby Dick, A Contract with God, and the academic work Graphic Storytelling and Visual Narrative.

Bruce Foster has successfully adapted and reconfigured a compelling Spirit adventure and captured a moment. This is no 2D portrayal of Denny Lane and a supporting cast. The pop-ups are really cool, and the multi layer approach to logos, backgrounds, and even motion frames actived by pulling a tab is a visual coup. The art by Eisner is stunning and even looks better in glossy colors. All that's missing is audio with dialogue and dramatic theme music.
Highly recommended for followers of the Spirit everywhere.
