Pop focus: The many-formed logo of Will Eisner's Spirit

Part of the fun of reading Will Eisner's "The Spirit" is seeing how Eisner integrated the title character's logo into the splash pages of his story.

Maybe "logo" is a stretch. While there is a Spirit logo that was used in comic book and magazine collections of the character's newspaper strips, the words "The Spirit" appears in all sorts of shapes and sizes on the splash pages, as you can see below.

The result is as testament to Eisner's visionary imagination as a cartoonist and a master of his craft. Check 'em out. Did I miss any of your favorites?
