    WILL EISNER ORIGINAL ART

    Title/date/description: COVER to THE SPIRIT’S CASEBOOK of TRUE HAUNTED HOUSES & GHOSTS (1976) 

    Two years before his groundbreaking graphic novel A Contract with God, Will Eisner was still experimenting with the storytelling format. One of his lesser known endeavors, even to serious Eisner and Spirit fans, was a pocket book with a rather cumbersome title: The Spirit’s Casebook of True Haunted Houses & Ghosts, published by Tempo/Grosset & Dunlop in 1976.

    This atypical Eisner cover depicts the ghostly figure of a beautiful female ghost with no hands hovering over a desolate house on a cliff’s edge. The paperback is so hard to find that even well-read copies bring $50 from dealers, and pristine copies almost never show up. Included with this original art is a near mint copy of the book: Eisner’s own file copy. 
     
    Size/medium/condition: 15 x 13 inches (38 x 33 cm). Acrylic paint on thick illustration board. Signed and dated lower right. Excellent condition. 

    Price
    : $3,950 (includes the NM book)

    Keep in mind if you are considering acquiring original WE art that Eisner created relatively few full color covers This is one of only a tiny handful remaining in the estate’s possession.
     

    Provenance: Warranted to be from the Will Eisner estate, which this agency exclusively represents.
