In the 60 years since his first appearance, the Spirit and his creator Will Eisner have both become legends. Perhaps no other writer/artist has received more admiration and acclaim from critics, readers and comics professionals.
The Spirit has never before been collected complete, in color, and in uniform format. With this series, this legendary strip can at last be presented in a manner it has deserved for so very long: a series of deluxe hardcover volumes with the strips painstakingly restored and faithfully recolored, representing in chronological order every Spirit story ever produced in its initial run.
Now, longtime devotees and new readers alike have a chance to own one of comics' true classics - Will Eisner's The Spirit, a work comprising equal elements of beauty and importance to this art form we call comics.

Eisner's reputation as one of the most important and influential figures from the comics' early days is based primarily on his best-known creation, the masked crimefighter called the Spirit. The Spirit's exploits, which started as comic-book inserts for Sunday newspapers, have been reprinted before but never as lavishly as now. It is treatment they richly deserve, and DC Comics plans to faithfully reproduce their entire run of more than 10 years in full color and hard covers. The stories from 1940 featured in the inaugural volume are relatively primitive, but already evident are Eisner's hallmarks: layouts influenced by German expressionist film composition (and presaging film noir, which would emerge in the mid-'40s), moody drawings drenched in atmospheric black ink, subject matter culled from outside genre conventions, and unwillingness to treat the figure of a do-gooder in a domino mask with a straight face. The stories slated for future volumes are among the most accomplished and memorable ever done for comics, but even this premiere collection constitutes an ideal introduction to Eisner. Gordon Flagg
