In 1976 Tempo books released this cool paperback by Will Eisner. Not a Spirit book but a True account of ghosts and hauntings
that is bookended by Sprit introductions on each story. Beatiful drawings throughout. No surprise of course.

and some odd bits
the first is a couple of images from the wonderful Hucleberry Hound Giant Storybook with drawings by Frank McSavage and the others [I'm reaching here, but I love the drawings in this book]
the "spooky" images from the Art Linklatters "Kids say the Darndest Things" with drawings by the awesome Charles Shultz.

I love that ghost kid with the glasses. Very funny. Draz, you seem to have a endless pit of great inspiration. Cool stuff.

Thanks for the Will Eisner images: the man had his hand in everything, didn't he? Comics, newspaper strips, true tales of the supernatural.

I also just realized who my user ID looks like. Hmm!
