Will Eisner original art: The Spirit #31 comic cover.

Previous Page - - - Page 15 of 15 - - - Main Page

This Spirit #31 Eisner cover art is based on "The Last Hand," a story from 5/16/48 featuring a "sweet little granny lady, Mrs. Morrison, [who] is in reality a homicidal maniac who stocks her gingerbread house with torture devices." The Spirit is trapped in one such device on the cover, struggling with a skeletal figure with manacles and a luger, wearing an editor's visor. Signed and dated ('87) by Eisner in the lower right corner. The "Spirit" logo can be seen penciled lightly in the background (the mechanical logo was dropped in separately in the design process). Measures 11" wide x 14" high. Price: $1,500.
