i just got the Spirit Archives, vols. 12-14 by Will Eisner. holy shit, man! this guy could do it all. The drawing, the stories, the humor... it's the total and utter shit!!! (but don't get vols. 4 thru 11 b/c they're not by Eisner. Eisner had gone off to do prop-ed art for the army during WW2).
el negro* thanks. i wish i could say that there is a 'homage' in there but that would have taken thought. this was actually a quick ruff draft i did just to get the idea down. i did another poster for this show but the promotions director liked this one, as is. go figure.
