I tried to sum up The Spirit to the Roller Girl the other day. To distance Will Eisner from the expected Frank Miller version, really. I went in to far too much detail and history, style and how Eisner used the whole thing as a story telling engine when she really just wanted to know who he is."He's like Batman. 'cept not rich. Not as smart, but with a sense of humor. And he gets beat up a lot."I think that did it.
shine 'em shoes, boy.
Heehee! Being friends with Batman must be a tough deal.
Batman's problem, is that he always takes things JUST a little bit too far. Hee!
Yeah. :-) Sorry, Sally -- I stole that panel from you!
Well heck, I stole it from Scans Daily. But it's a whole lot funnier in your context.
