WHO IS… THE SPIRIT? From his eerie headquarters under Wildwood Cemetery, masked criminologist Denny Colt —believed by many to be dead —secretly fights crime as The Spirit!
From his home in Central City to the far-flung corners of the world and beyond, The Spirit attracts the most seductive and dangerous femmes fatale and wages a neverending war against streetwise crooks, criminal master-minds and otherworldly beings… with only quick wits, sharp humor and his two gloved fists.
Will Eisner created the The Spirit in 1940. For twelve years, the original adventures of masked crime fighter Denny Colt appeared in newspapers and comic books across the United States.
The Spirit first appeared in print as the star of a syndicated comics feature —known now as 'The Spirit Section' —produced by Eisner's studio. The stories were also published in comic book format in various Quality Comics by publisher Everett 'Busy' Arnold, a business partner of Eisner's. The Spirit stories have been reprinted in several comic book series and collected editions from various publishers over the years. The main publisher was Kitchen Sink Press, who published the strips in a black-and-white magazine known as... The Spirit!
