RIP: Will Eisner

[ #22597 ]
Will Eisner died on January 3rd. For those who have never heard of Will he created comic books and IMO the best comic to be distributed by newspapers: the 16 page supplement following the adventures of The Spirit.

Starting in the late 70's and continuing until his death Will also pioneered the creation of literaty graphic novels(in North America - Asia and Europe have never had the "comics are for kids" stigma prevalent here)

Will was an inspiration for multiple generations of comic artists and his work done 60-70 years ago holds up remarkably well today.

This weekend I need to wipe the cobwebs off of my comic collection and find the Kitchen Sink reprints of The Spirit and spend some time with an old friend.

Rest in peace.

  • That truely bums me out. I have a fair collection of the Kitchen Sink reprints, and grew quite fond of "The Spirit" before running into my still-current comedy of errors regarding finances.

    Will, you indeed WILL be missed, and the world is blessed to have known your presence.

    oh okay fine, I'll say it. someone has to :j "the Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.."

    Yeah yeah, I know, my puns are always awful.

    I'll miss you, Will. Cheers, and thanks for the memories. *sniff*
