Comic News: Dynamite Adds Will Eisner’s The Spirit

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that they have come to a licensing agreement with Will Eisner’s estate to publish new stories for The Spirit.  This coincides with The Spirit’s 75th anniversary.  At the moment Dynamite has not revealed their plans for The Spirit, but Eisner estate controllers Nancy and Carl Gropper said of the deal:

“We are thrilled that Will Eisner’s The Spirit has found a new home with Dynamite Entertainment.  At Dynamite, The Spirit will be joining many iconic heroes including Flash Gordon, The Shadow, The Green Hornet, The Lone Ranger, Zorro, and others. Will Eisner created The Spirit in 1940 as a syndicated seven-page newspaper supplement, where The Spirit fought the villains of Central City weekly until 1952.  We’re hoping to see Dynamite’s new comics of The Spirit surpass the circulation of the Will Eisner’s original series.”
