"Blubber the Eskimo was drawn to look as much like Ebony as possible, whether by design or because that is simply Will's subconsciously preferred approach to boy-sidekick art. The similarity between the two characters is so close that when 'The Fly' was reprinted... in the Warren SPIRIT magazine... nobody seemed to notice that the little kid following The Spirit around was not Ebony White." ---from "The Central City Zeit-Geist" in The Spirit #3 (Kitchen Sink)
