Black and White Wednesday: "The Capistrano Jewels" by Will Eisner

By popular demand, here's Will Eisner's original tale for the second ish of Kitchen Sink's underground Spirit mag from the fall of '73. Would this four pager rate an "adults only" tag in today's comicbook market?


  1. Groove:

    You asked if, nearly 40 years later, this would still be adults only? Technically, I'd say yes, given the subtext regarding P'Gell.

  2. Sorry, the gay superheroes are openly making out now, so P'Gell's "subtext" wouldn't raise an eyebrow.

    What WOULD have everyone arguing would be the cat graphically getting blown up.
