The Spirit

Stylin’, wilin’, livin’ it up in the city.

Will Eisner’s masked vigilante, a man who can take a punch and come back for 10 more, made his debut in 1940.

Jump forward to 2008 and The Spirit, with comic book firebrand Frank Miller calling the shots as writer/director, hit the silver screen with a major SPLAT.

Critics hated it, the box office tanked, and … so freakin what?

Sure, there’s more style than substance here, but man, what style.

Images crackle and pop, the night comes alive with 1,001 dangers, and me, I’m sitting here with a goofy grin on my face, lappin’ it up.
