, 2002 - Fiction
- 228 pages
As the seventh hardcover edition in the impressive Spirit Archives collection, this masterpiece features the work of some of the pioneers of the comic world. With the war in Europe still waging, the Sunday strips from July 4 - December 26, 1943 had the Spirit focusing his attention to homegrown homefront problems. Returning to his crimefighting roots, the Spirit must help Ellen Dolan when she is framed for a dance marathon murder, prove his own innocence when he becomes the prime suspect for a prominent businessman's death, catch a shipyard saboteur, thwart a kidnapping by a couple of femme fatales, and confront a murderous ex-con living on a construction site.
