Will Eisner's The Spirit has a new home at Dynamite Entertainment. Dynamite reached a licensing agreement with the Eisner estate. More of this deal will be announce at SDCC this year, but best bet is we'll see a brand new reprint of both Eisner's original run and Darwyn Cook and J. Bone's run and of course a new series too.

"We are thrilled that Will Eisner's The Spirit has found a new home with Dynamite Entertainment," state Nancy and Carl Gropper of the Eisner estate in a joint announcement.  "At Dynamite, The Spirit will be joining many iconic heroes including Flash Gordon, The Shadow, The Green Hornet, The Lone Ranger, Zorro, and others. Will Eisner created The Spirit in 1940 as a syndicated seven-page newspaper supplement, where The Spirit fought the villains of Central City weekly until 1952.  We're hoping to see Dynamite's new comics of The Spirit surpass the circulation of the Will Eisner's original series."
