ICv2 reports that DC Comics will prepare a “Spirit Special,” acting on retailer suggestions from the recent Ft. Wayne Diamond Comics summit.  The comic will ship Nov. 19, and contains the Will Eisner stories “Sign of the Octopus” from 1947, “Black Alley” from 1949, plus “Sand Seref” and “Bring in Sand Seref “from 1950.  

The comic is intended as a low-priced introduction to “The Spirit” in advance of the upcoming film. DC Comics also has published “The Best of the Spirit,” collecting Eisner stories, two hardcovers featuring Darwyn Cooke’s take on the character, and Eisner’s complete “The Spirit” in a series of hardcover archive editions.
