Oddly, the overall look of the character design and styling remind me of someone who never, to my knowledge, drew Batman–namely Will Eisner. In fact, if there were ever going to be an animated version of “The Spirit,” the gang at Warner Communications is unquestionably the crew to do it.
I particularly enjoyed the attention to detail, such as Commissioner Gordon casually pushing his glasses up on the bridge of his nose–a common enough gesture for anyone wearing glasses, but something you never see in cartoons. Although I could have done without Gordon’s hairstyle…it looked like it came out of a Dairy Queen dispenser, and no matter how strong the wind was, it didn’t lose its shape.
