Feel "The Spirit" move you with this 1977 lithograph set. Such is the respect and adoration for comic book creator Will Eisner (d.2005) that there are comic industry awards and a Hall of Fame named for him. Eisner's favorite son and most recognizable character is "The Spirit," a masked vigilante who doles out justice in fictional "Central City." Created by Eisner in 1940, this dedicated crime fighter has been going strong for 80 years now, with appearances in comic books, newspapers, movies and on the radio. The Spirit's noirish adventures are celebrated with this 1977 Collectors' Press portfolio set of (11) plates. Housed in a handsome blue portfolio album with publisher's COA, these 12x16 lithos present in average (NM to NM-MT+) condition. Eisner has signed "Plate One" with ("9") potency at bottom left and this same plate is LE numbered "315/1,500", just to the right of Eisner's signature.
