A comics master's apex Nov. 6 2006
By Bradley Olrich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Will Eisner is righfully considered to be the most innovative draftsman and storyteller in the history of comics so far (just over 100 years and counting...). This particular volume collects his 'Spirit' stories at the top of their form. Stories in which the Spirit himself often took a backseat to various colorful character inhabiting Central City. This allowed for a greater variety of genres to be played with by the writers (which included a young Jules Pfieffer), getting away from the Spirit's usual crime noir and delving into slice of life stories, science fiction, and humor. I'm a cartoonist myself (see Commodore Dinosaur on the web)and teach a college course on comics and graphic novel illustration and Eisner's work is required reading, but that aside, these stories are just entertaining as hell.
