"The Death of Autumn Mews"
(October 9, 1949). Page
2. The Spirit is in two panels. Ill-fated Autumn Mews
and The Spirit's new assistant Sammy (Ebony's temporary
replacement) are also featured. $2,250.
Most Spirit fans cannot
afford to buy a complete 7-page Spirit story (averaging
$15,000) and Will Eisner, at this point, will not break
up his stories. However, a recent inventory of Eisner's art files
revealed several incomplete Spirit stories. So we are
now able to offer ---for the first time--- single pages
from several classic 1940s stories. The size of these originals
averages 15 inches x 22 inches on Bristol board.
Please note that the images scanned
here are from Kitchen Sink and Warren comics or
magazines for identification purposes and not from the
original art. Thus the images are not as sharp as the actual
art. The original art is in Will Eisner's personal files
and will be drop-shipped (and carefully packaged) by Eisner himself
with a hand-signed Bill of Sale.
NOTE: This piece of Eisner art
will be drop-shipped directly from Eisner Studios in Florida.
THEY charge a flat rate of $ 40.00 for packing, shipping, and
insurance for STANDARD DOMESTIC SHIPPING. Our site will add this
fee during checkout.
We are willing to make special
payment arrangements on high dollar art. Contact us directly
for more information.
Additionally, Will Eisner requires
that a Bill of Sale in duplicate be signed by every purchaser of his original art. Essentially it
asks the buyer to acknowledge that you are buying the artwork
but no reproduction rights to the image. One of the Bills of
Sale counter-signed by Will Eisner will be returned to the buyer
with the art. This will also act as a certificate of authenticity
and enable you to establish provenance should you resale the
Bills of sale can be faxed, emailed,
or snail mailed to the buyer. Be aware though, Mr. Eisner will
not ship art until he has received both signed copies of the
Bill of Sale. The process can take 7 to 14 days (to complete
the sale and ship art).
