Will Eisner's The Spirit was seen weekly by five million newspaper readers in the 1940s and 50s and has been continually in print for the 80 years since. The Spirit was famous for its imaginative storytelling, film noir style, unforgettable characters, and stories. Since then, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Darwyn Cooke, and many others have tried to match Will Eisner's creativity with their own versions of the The Spirit. Join moderator Danny Fingeroth (A Marvelous Life: The Amazing Story of Stan Lee; Will Eisner Week Chair) and panelists Paul Levitz (Brooklyn Blood, Will Eisner: Champion of the Graphic Novel), Denis Kitchen (cartoonist, The Spirit publisher, Will Eisner's agent and friend), and Dan Schkade (Lavender Jack, The Spirit artist) as they discuss The Spirit as Will Eisner wrote and drew him.
