Home  >  Features  >  Great Moments in Comic Book History - Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons Reunite on THE SPIRIT



Welcome to an all-new, regular feature here on MightyVille: Great Moments in Comic Book History! Each week, we'll take a look at a single panel from a critical comic book, in no particular order, and highlight the future impact of that magnificent occurrence.

This week, we're getting into the Halloween spirit with Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' reunion on THE SPIRIT: THE NEW ADVENTURES #1!

In 1997, The Spirit's creator, Will Eisner, gave Kitchen Sink Press permission to create new THE SPIRIT tales by some of the industry's top creators. Right out the door, THE SPIRIT: THE NEW ADVENTURES #1 reunited the creative team of DC Comics' seminal WATCHMEN and had them re-examine Denny Colt's origins as Central City's masked crime fighter. 

At the time, this was a fairly big deal as neither creator had worked together since the end of WATCHMEN. That said, the series didn't seem to have much legs and didn't last very long. But there are some awesome, awesome Spirit stories to be read here if you can track down the issues or collections from Dark Horse Comics. 

The Spirit: The New Adventures #1, March 1998, written by Alan Moore and drawn by Dave Gibbons.
