Because I need to know more about Will Eisner and The Spirit...

...I'll read, plus share, David "Bad Azz Mofo" Walker's MSN piece about Eisner and his signature creation The Spirit. The Spirit was one of the more offbeat, well-written superhero creations of the early days of comics, created by someone who became one of the most influential comic artists of the 20th century. As I said to my friend/former girlfriend Alicia when I tried to explain Eisner to her, "without Eisner and The Spirit, we probably wouldn't have Watchmen."

The article ties in to the upcoming film adaptation of The Spirit that Eisner's friend Frank Miller directed. I'm, um, not hopeful that the film is anywhere near good (Fatboy Roberts eviscerated, I mean reviewed it over at Geek in the City), so I'm focusing on the original work. As should anyone interested in comics.
