“Action. Mystery. Adventure.” Readers of 1940s weekly Sunday comics were guaranteed these and more whenever they turned to writer/illustrator Will Eisner’s The Spirit section. In this course, participants will read selected Spirit stories, examine Eisner’s innovative drawing techniques, and discuss why the stories are both entertaining and provocative.

Doug Rose taught "Comic Books as Literature" at SUNY Canton for several years and included Will Eisner’s Comics as Sequential Art and The Best of The Spirit as required reading for his students.

NOTE: Copies of DC Comics’ The Best of the Spirit will be provided.
