sandsaref.jpgIn an interview with Variety, Frank Miller announced the forthcoming movie adaptation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit will focus on the Sand Saref storyline, which made its debut in newspapers in 1950.

The story focuses on early germ-warfare, the Spirit’s first love who turned to a life of crime, espionage, and romance. The Spirit adventures had already been running in papers for 10 years before this storyline appeared.

“I’ve been writing every word of it myself and storyboarding every frame,” he says. “This is a real work of love, and it’s become my life completely.”

The Sand Saref storyline appears in DC’s Will Eisner’s Spirit Archives Volume 20.
