WILL EISNER'S THE SPIRIT: THE CORPSE-MAKERS #1
Cover: Francesco Francavilla Writer: Francesco Francavilla Art: Francesco Francavilla
A series of unexpected disappearances and deaths hit Central City. Initially these cases seem purely unrelated: no apparent connection between the victims makes it easy for the police to just file them as runaways or natural deaths.

From the mind of writer/artist & Eisner winner Francesco Francavilla, comes a thrilling tale of The Spirit that promises to tingle your spines.
