“The Spirit” moves from DC to Dynamite

In a move that surprised at least me, Dynamite Entertainment announced that they’re acquiring the rights to Will Eisner’s “The Spirit.”

Comics Alliance wrote:

Dynamite plans to publish new stories starring the character, but has not yet announced creative teams or indicated when these comics might see print. Whether Dynamite has the rights to any archive material or plans to do anything with it remains to be seen. Dynamite Entertainment publisher and CEO Nick Barrucci called the acquisition, “a lifelong dream come true.”

The rights to The Spirit have had several homes over the years, most recently at DC Comics. Dynamite publishes quite a few different licensed works, so I look forward to following the character’s adventures at its new home.

This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”

    Would have been better at IDW. Their Artists Series is incredible. For example, try looking at their, Romita, Sr. Spider-Man artists series. Seeing his pencils in all their glory on a huge page… IDW would do Eisner’s Spirit justice.
