Francesco Francavilla Takes on The Spirit
Dynamite Entertainment has announced that writer-artist Francesco Francavilla will tackle Will Eisner’s legendary masked crimefighter this January in the all-new comic book series, The Spirit: The Corpse-Makers!
Following Matt Wagner’s initial twelve-issue run (released as a collection, entitled Will Eisner’s The Spirit Returns, this month), Francesco Francavilla takes the reins for an all-new series early next year! Francavilla, known primarily for his incredible covers and interior artwork, will handle writing and artistic duties on a new series which is sure to please lovers of crime comics, pulp fiction, and — of course — longtime fans of Eisner’s most well-known creation!
A series of unexpected disappearances and deaths hit Central City. Initially these cases seem purely unrelated: no apparent connection between the victims makes it easy for the police to just file them as runaways or natural deaths. But when someone close to Ebony White disappears, The Spirit is on the case!
The Spirit: The Corpse-Makers #1 is slated for release in October.
