The Spirit of Eddie Campbell -- There's two great quotes in this piece about creating stories for Will Eisner's The Spirit: The New Adventures, a mixed-quality title from Kitchen Sink from years back. The first one is this:
I've never been fond of the idea of lots of different artists taking a crack at an old comic strip. The best characters in the old days were like an artist's signature while the characters of today are well, meh.
Yes. Just so. And then there's this one, which very nearly made me laugh out loud:
Eisner's late comic book covers always look too much like the Marvel formula to be entirely enjoyable. And also, somebody is always biting somebody else's clothes.
Go read the entire thing, it's pure gold.
