Will Eisner (19172005) is universally considered the master of comics storytelling, best known for The Spirit, his iconic newspaper comic strip, and A Contract With God, the first significant graphic novel. This seminal work from 1978 ushered in a new era of personal stories in comics form that touched every adult topic from mortality to religion and sexuality, forever changing the way writers and artists approached comics storytelling.
Noted historian Paul Levitz celebrates Eisner by showcasing his most famous work along¬side unpublished and rare materials from the family archives. Also included are original interviews with creators such as Jules Feiffer, Art Spiegelman, Scott McCloud, Jeff Smith, Denis Kitchen, and Neil Gaimanall of whom knew Eisner and were inspired by his work to create their own graphic novels for a new generation of readers.
NOTE: the cover is a high-quality photographic reproduction of Eisner's original art. The design intentionally reveals tape and other stray markings that are part of the artist's process and reflect the age of the artifact that was photographed.
Eisner was not only ahead of his times; the present times are still catching up to him. John Updike
