Abstract:

Will Eisner's career spans the entire history of comic books-from his formative days in the 1930s through the 1940s, when he revolutionized narrative sequential art with his internationally famed series The Spirit, to the 1970s, when he created the contemporary graphic novel form with A Contract with God.

The Will Eisner Companion is the first comprehensive 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 N. C. Christopher Couch and Stephen Weiner, as well as encyclopedic listings covering the full spectrum of his oeuvre. Also includes a chronology, a selected bibliography, and a suggested reading list.

The perfect introduction to the work of a comics legend, The Will Eisner Companion is a must-have celebration for new fans as well as old.
