IDW To Publish Will Eisner’s The Spirit Artist’s Edition

Time to call the carpenters, folks. IDW have announced their fifth Artist Edition, that recreates the original artwork to classic comic books, as close to reproducing the original boards as possible.

And now they have Will Eisner’s The Spirit for next year.

One of the most influential comic strips of all time from the forties and fifties and still stunning work to modern eyes. 144 pages for $100.

Long time Eisner reprinter Dennis Kitchen is quoted as saying “no publication of The Spirit that I or any other publisher has issued over the years has done true justice to Will’s originals. The delicate brush feathering, hint of pencils, even areas of White-out, are effectively lost with standard reproduction. That will finally change when IDW’s large Artist’s Edition comes out. I’m delighted to finally be able to share the sheer pleasure of these authentic reproduction with other aficionados.”

So say we all. One more to announce this week…
