Description
Will Eisner's career spans the entire history of comic books-from his formative days in the 1930s through the 1940s, when he revlutionized narrative sequential art with his internationally famed series The Spirit, to the 1970s, when he created the contern-porary graphic novel form with A Contract With God. The Will Eisner Companion is the first comprehensive, critical overview of the work of writer/artist Will Eisner. Divided into two sections--his Spirit work and his graphic novels--this authorized companion features all-new critical and historical essays by noted comic book historians Chris Couch and Stephen Weiner, as well as alphabetical listings relating to all aspects and charcters in his oeuvre. Also includes a chronology, a bibliography, and suggested reading lists. The prefect introduction to the work of Will Eisner, The Will Eisner Companion is a must-have celebration for new fans as well as old.
