THE SPIRIT

#1-22 [1944-1950]
The Spirit chronicles the adventures of a masked vigilante who fights crime with the blessing of the city's police commissioner Dolan, an old friend. The stories range through a wide variety of styles, from straightforward crime drama and noir to lighthearted adventure, from mystery and horror to comedy and love stories, often with hybrid elements that twisted genre and reader expectations.
Originally The Spirit was featured as the lead item of a 16-page, tabloid-sized, newsprint comic book sold as part of eventually 20 Sunday newspapers with a combined circulation of as many as five million copies. "The Spirit Section", as it was colloquially called, premiered June 2, 1940, and continued until October 5, 1952. There were 645 sections originally printed. Quality comics reprinted many of these in 3 different titles. Modern Comics reprinted section 362 in issue 102. Police Comics reprinted 89 selected sections between 1 and 353 in issues 11-102. The Spirit title reprinted 97 selected sections between 145 and 332.
