    THE SPIRIT SPECIAL #1: RUSH SOLICITATION

    With Frank Miller's highly anticipated movie of The Spirit coming in December, DC Comics rush solicits THE SPIRIT SPECIAL #1.

    "We're pleased to offer this Special based on suggestions made at the Diamond retailer summit in Las Vegas," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales. "This issue will be a great way to introduce curious customers to The Spirit as the movie gets closer."

    Offered at a cover price of $2.99 US, this 32-page comic includes a cover four classic stories by Will Eisner: 1947's "Sign of the Octopus," 1949's "Black Alley," and "Sand Saref" and "Bring in Sand Saref," both from 1950.

    THE SPIRIT SPECIAL #1 (SEP088005) is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 19 and has a Final Order Cutoff date of Thursday, October 30.

    Retailers may order this item by contacting their Diamond Customer Service Representative or DC Sales Representative, or by email at reorders@....
