check out this stunning FULLY DRAWN SPLASH PAGE, which was created by Lou Fine, with Will Eisner adding finishes. This wonderful large pinup was drawn for The Spirit Sunday Comics Supplement Splash dated 9-19-43 (Register & Tribune, 1943). From the Eisner Studio's original newspaper-supplement presentation for the Register & Tribune Syndicate, doing double duty as a Quality Comics reprint. This one, billed as "Stormy Weather" for Quality's Spirit #3 (1945). (Quality added the "Spirit" and "Page 41" headers, stapled in place.) Eisner's personal touch is evident in the fedoras worn by the Spirit and Commissioner Dolan: "Lou Fine was a master, and very much attuned to what I was doing," Eisner recounted in the 1990s, "But I always had to redraw or retouch his hats. He never could make a hat sit right on the head." The rainy-night setting is a constant among the Spirit stories: Eisner's contemporary Harvey Kurtzman called the technique "Eisenshpritz." with knife-blade scratching for the brilliant rain highlights. The image area measures 11.5 by 16.5 inches on a 14.25 by 19.75 inch art board. Just a great cover! Compare this nice SPLASH art to the published Sunday Page Pinup in the red link above! ALL art on our website (including this one) are able to be purchased with VERY fair time payments, and trades are always considered towards "ANY" art on our website!
