Kitchen Sink's Spirited Coverage!
It was a blue day indeed when Warren Magazines cancelled their Spirit. These black, white and gray classics were my window into the wonder of Will Eisner. I was sad to see them go, but some years later I found that the Spirit had merely wandered over to Kitchen Sink, the company that would keep him in front of the public longer than any other.
They treated The Spirit with great respect at Denis Kitchen's operation, as shown by the delicious wraparound covers they used. Here is a lush gallery of those expansive (and at the time still somewhat rare) wraparound covers created by Will Eisner just for these reprints.
