"The Fly" was the first of Will Eisner's "tragic" stories in the post-war period. Spirit columnist Cat Yronwode called this 1946 story featuring the ill-fated Guthrie Bendbagel, Jr. "a precursor to Will's own self-proclaimed 'favorite' story, 'Gerhard Schnobble,' which appeared in 1948." "The Fly" was reprinted in Spirit Magazine #16 (Warren) and in color in The Spirit comic book #3 (Kitchen Sink). This story also features Blubber the Eskimo boy, who replaced Ebony for a while as The Spirit's sidekick. Price: $12,500 for all seven pages.
