What was unusual about The Spirit: The New Adventures #9? (Answer at bottom of the page)

Within the space of a few weeks between February and March 2001, two Spirit collectibles appeared on the market:

The graphic for the line

Graphitti Designs launched their range of Big Blast action figures, which in the initial series has Mike Mignola's Hellboy, Matt Wagner's Grendel, and Will Eisner's Spirit.

The figures in the range

The action figure for The Spirit comes with two heads: one with his fedora hat and one hatless but 'battle worn'.

His arms and legs are movable as is his tie! With the figure you get a "Wanted" poster (as depicted on Section #62 - 3rd August 1941); a headstone with the words "RIP DENNY COLT"; and the letters spelling out Spirit!

The figure in the packaging

The action figure is sculpted by Norm DeCarlo and measures roughly 8" tall. There is one oddity about it: the jacker is buttoned up from the wrong side, i.e. its a women's jacket!

The second collectible was released by DC Direct and costs considerably more than the recommended $14.95 of the action figure!

The statue

The Spirit Statue (retailing at a cool $195!) sculpted by William Paquet and based on designs by Will Eisner. The statue is made in China and is a limited edition (1000) cold-cast porcelain figure which is hand painted. It is 12" tall, 5.5" wide and 3.5" deep. On the underside of the base is the limited edition number (out of 1000).

With the release of The Spirit Lunchbox also in 2001, it was a bumper year for Spirit related products!

2002 also saw two new Spirit related items: a mini-bust from DC Direct, and a classic character statue released from Dark Horse.

This mini-bust is inspired by the 7 April 1946 Spirit section in which The Spirit gets tied up and kissed. DC Direct's  mini-bust is a hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain bust sculpted by James Shoop standing approximately 5.25" tall x 3.62" wide.
