THE SPIRIT "Vietnam '50"

Before America took a direct hand...
...Vietnam was, to pop culture fans, just another exotic locale for high adventure!
Written by Will Eisner (with Jules Feiffer assisting), penciled and inked by Eisner and his studio, this tale published in November 5, 1950 Sunday newspapers uses the then-current Indo-China War as the nominal location for a story about a criminal who tries to evade justice, only to be done in by his own avarice!
Eisner would revisit the locale decades later in the Dark Horse graphic novel Last Day in Vietnam.(2000)
