Will Eisner’s The Spirit: Artist’s Edition Arrives (Scoop)

Will Eisner's The Spirit: Artist's Edition (IDW)

Will Eisner’s The Spirit: Artist’s Edition (IDW)

The latest and longest awaited volume in IDW Publishing’s Artist’s Edition series makes its debut this week as Will Eisner’s The Spirit: Artist’s Edition arrives in stores on Wednesday, April 10, 2013. One of the first announced in the series, this is the week that fans decide whether or not it was worth the wait (we vote “yes,” in case anyone’s asking).

Like the other offerings in the series, the pages have been scanned in full color at the original size from the original black-and-white artwork. This process shows everything from original corrections, paste-ups and editorial marks to aging of the art board in amazing detail. In the cases of older work such as this, these volumes have often provided the finest reproduction the art has ever received.

Though known to later generations for his long form work in graphic novels beginning with A Contract With God, Eisner’s work on The Spirit was done in short, complete stories. This created the chance for IDW’s Scott Dunbier, editor of their Artist’s Edition line among other projects, to highlight a wide selection of the master cartoonist’s work.
