The Spirit was a spin off of a 1940s 16-page, tabloid-sized, newsprint comic book insert titled The Spirit by cartoonist Will Eisner, which in it's heyday was circulated in 20 Sunday newspaper publications. A comic hero that notably piqued Steve Ditko's interest in comic drawing. The Spirit chronicles the adventures of criminologist Denny Colt's apparition, after he was killed by a mad scientist. The masked vigilante fights crime with the blessing of the city's police commissioner Dolan. On March 6th of 2011 it even got it's own Google doodle in an Eisner posthumous 94th birthday celebration.
