SPIRIT #22

Thanks to Jon Z for showing off this incredible Will Eisner Bad Girl cover that happens to be the list issue of the run.  Long considered a classic cover as well as a scarce book to find in any condition.  Little known fact (Again, thanks Z), is that this cover is actually based on a photo of Lauren Bacall.

The census makes this look like a pretty common book with 43 Universal copies on the census with the top copy being a shocking 9.8 and the low being a pair of 2.0's.  Also shocking is the 6.08 average on the 43 comics.

Yup…  Another Schomburg gem.  Might have used this one before, but it's worth another look.

2 9s at the top 5.77 and 2.0 at the bottom with 15 total examples suggests this is still somewhat of a rare find in the marketplace.

As always, thanks for looking, folks!
