I've been following the Dick Tracy strip for a few months now regularly and did not know this was happening until a few weeks ago when the Spirit suddenly appeared in the strip by Mike Curtis and the great Joe Staton. Wowser! I've not been a particular fan of what Dynamite has been doing with the character but I am downright gleeful to see one of my favorite artists take a swing at Will Eisner's iconic comic figure. If anyone can capture the blend of drama and fun which Eisner produced at his best, it's Staton.

The fantastic faux cover above appears to my eye to be a blend of these evocative originals.
