Okay, scans. Last week we had Violent Women of the Golden Age and then, on Thursday, a selection of oddball covers sought by collectors. Now we have Spirit sections. No doubt Photobucket has shaved off the right edges, just like it did last week. But this time all we lose is some newsprint. (UPDATE: Son of a bitch!) (UPDATE 2: Noah told me how to fix the problem: edit the coding so that the picture’s width fits the width of the blog. Oh my.)
Below we have the very first Spirit section, followed by another early splash but one that already shows Eisner’s special touch; it was included by Jules Feiffer in The Great Comic Book Heroes. Note how the series logo is incorporated into the drawing! I’m not sure anyone has ever pointed that out before.
