Flying Saucer cover! Very soon after the U.F.O. phenomenon began, Will Eisner created a parody of Orson Welles' famous 1938 Mercury Theater interpretation of "The War of the Worlds." The Welles-inspired character, The Spirit, a hot air balloon and a flying saucer dominate this otherworldly cover to The Spirit #22 (Kitchen Sink), which measures 9.5" wide x 14" high. Signed and dated ('86) in lower right corner. Price: $1,500.
