I would guess that I am the last person in the free comics world to know about this, but Frank Miller has written and is directing a big-screen version of Will Eisner's "The Spirit"?!
Cool! I really enjoyed Darwyn Cooke's adaption, and of course Will Eisner (for you young whippersnappers out there) is one of the seminal figures in the history of the comics medium, both as a creator and as a thinker. Match that up with Frank Miller, one of the towering names of the modern comics industry, and I have real cause for hope that this movie will rawk.
That’s interesting… very interesting. The Spirit was the detective who wore gloves and a mask, right?
PS: By the way, why not 😉 add that loverly little idea on the yahoo group about choosing the next mini as a post and poll here?
The teaser trailer for this movie is already out on YouTube and on another forum I visit, someone was complaining that visually it looked like 100% Frank Miller and nothing like Eisner. I haven’t read much of The Spirit, so I can’t tell.
