The Spirit #1 (1944), is a collection of Sunday newspaper stories published during the time creator Will Eisner was at war. Occasionally Eisner found time to help out. This story, called “Yellow-Eyes Janus” by the Grand Comics Database, and “Manhunt” on the inside cover of the actual issue, is credited to Eisner and Lou Fine, with the writing by Eisner. Some of Eisner’s ghosts were better at his style than others, but there is a lot going on in this episode that tells us he worked on it. The scenes in the sewer are vintage Eisner.
The story originally appeared May 2, 1943.
