"The Spirit" on a stormy day

Rainy, stormy, yucky...
It's a good day to stay inside and read, so I am enjoying some of WILL EISNER'S original adventures of "THE SPIRIT."
Launched in 1940, Eisner's comic creation broke ground, with artistic elements that included characters stretching beyond the panels meant to contain them and plots that mixed crime drama and comedy gumbo style.
The Spirit was the "long believed dead" criminologist Denny Colt, who emerged from a spell of suspended animation to fight crime just beyond the reach of the law.
It's delightful stuff when you wish to avoid an unusually wet, hot-and-sticky day.
