Number 1727: Sam, sci-fi, and the Spirit
Originally published in the weekly Spirit Comic Book Supplement on February 3, 1941, this is an example of author/artist Will Eisner’s unique blend of fantasy, as a break from his usual stories of crime and criminals. He used this type of tale occasionally, and I admire how his vision transcends what would be just another alien invasion story.
Years ago in an article about Eisner I saw this panel from the story:
This reprint — with that panel still intact — is from Police Comics #40 (1945).
