Will Eisner: 75 Years of Graphic Storytelling
Will Eisner: 75 Years of Graphic Storytelling |
August 16 to November 30.
It is nearly impossible to discuss the history of American comics without mentioning the name Will Eisner. On The show will feature original art from some of Eisner’s greatest works including The Spirit, Contract With God, Dropsie Avenue, Last Day in Vietnam and The Plot, as well as rarely-seen selections from his student days, his early work as a commercial artist, and his comics for the military. As a key figure in the birth of the comics industry in the 1930s and the rise of the graphic novel in the 1980s, Eisner influenced—directly and indirectly—everyone involved with graphic storytelling, as an artist, an editor, an entrepreneur and an educator. This exhibit explores the range of Eisner's work spanning nearly 8 decades and documents his impact on the development of comics over the past century
