From the publisher:

IDW is exceedingly proud to offer an Artist's Edition of Will Eisner's The Spirit. Created by Eisner in 1940, the Spirit is to comics what Citizen Kane was to cinema--groundbreaking and brilliant. 17 classic stories are collected in this volume, each being scanned from the original art, and all stories from the post-war years of 1946-1950--generally regarded as Eisner's best period on the Spirit. Stories include April Fool, Li'l Adam, War Bride, Taxes and the Spirit, and Eisner's personal favorite, The Story of Gerhard Shnobble, as well as a dozen more.

All the pages in this book have been scanned from the actual original art that was drawn by Will Eisner. This Artist's Edition measures 15 x 22 inches and is 144 pages long.

This came from the collection of Steve Sherman, a writer,artist, puppet-maker, puppet-performer, and avid collector. Steve worked as Jack Kirby's assistant, at Filmation, and Sid and Marty Krofft, before forming his own company Puppet Studio in 1984 contributing to "Pee-Wee's Playhouse", "Men in Black 1 & 2", "Mighty Joe Young", "Muppets" and numerous other TV series and feature films.
