The Will Eisner Companion: The Pioneering Spirit of the Father of the Graphic Novel
N. C. Christopher Couch
Will Eisner's career spans the entire history of American comic books, from his formative days in the 1930s into 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, to the present! THE WILL EISNER COMPANION is a comprehensive, critical overview of the work of this legendary writer/artist, and is now available in softcover! Divided into two sections — his Spirit work and his graphic novels — this authorized companion features critical and historical essays by noted comics historians N.C. Christopher Couch and Stephen Weiner, as well as alphabetical indexes relating to all aspects and characters in his oeuvre. This volume also includes a chronology, a bibliography and suggested reading lists, as well as an introduction by Dennis O'Neil. THE WILL EISNER COMPANION is a must-have celebration for new fans as well as old.
