Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post
… Eisner's formal experiments opened up new territory for American comics. The title page of each story, in particular, is a little wonder of design -- the Spirit's name might be spelled out by scraps of paper drifting over an industrial zone, a set of lipstick prints or the ripples in a whirlpool. Eisner discarded realism in favor of hyperexpressive body language and loose, rubbery linework. He played with wide-open spaces on the page, wordless sequences and elaborate framing devices for stories. From a 21st-century perspective, these stories are snapshots of post-war American culture, trying to make sense of its own absurdities. — Douglas Wolk
