After much delay, and that’s being kind, I was blown away by Will Eisner’s The Spirit Artist’s Edition. Those reading this who wonder if this book is worth the money should run to their nearest comic shop and buy it while they can.
All the pages in this book have been scanned from the actual original art that was drawn by Will Eisner. This Artist’s Edition measures 15 x 22 inches and is 144 pages long. Each book is shipped in a custom cardboard box for maximum protection.

As with all Artist’s Editions, this one is a collection of original inked comic art pages scanned in colour, and as always the end product is stunning. I’m not here to review the material as it’s over sixty years old and has been published in multiple formats since. In this review I’m looking at this book from it’s presentation of material and overall production.
