Spirit of science fiction
I like Will Eisner's Spirit stories because they can be anything: detective, human interest, adventure, romance, film noir, fantasy or science fiction. Sometimes a combination of those elements. These stories, scanned from Police Comics #101 and #102, 1950, use science fiction as a sub-theme in the first (rocket to the moon as escape for a criminal), and the plot driver for the second (time travel). As usual, nothing in a Spirit story is strictly conventional. There are always surprises in the seven pages that fit outside normal expectations of 1940's comics.
We are in a science fiction week at Pappy's. Tomorrow, the Fox rocket men!
