Will Eisner, Rest In Peace, Please
Another of the greats has passed. Will Eisner, creator of the comic "The Spirit" and a seminal figure in the world of graphic novels, has passed away. He was 87.
Anyone at all interested in how comics work should avail themselves of Mr. Eisner's groundbreaking book, "Comics and Sequential Art." That work comes with the highest possible recommendation. (It should be kept in a place of honor along with Scott McCloud's "Understanding Comics.")
