Will Eisner: The Centennial Celebration, 1917-2017
Will Eisner towers over the field of comics, his imprint ranging from his iconic crimefighting hero The Spirit in the 1940s and ’50s to his pioneering graphic novel A Contract with God in the late 1970s. The latter forever changed the way comics writers and artists approach
their craft, ushering in a new era of personal, longer-form stories touching on mortality, religion, sexuality, and other adult topics.
Eisner’s innovative storytelling, layouts, and art inspired a generation of cartoonists including Jules Feiffer and Mad magazine’s Al Jaffee.
His work is spotlighted in the traveling exhibit Will Eisner: The Centennial Celebration, a collection of 86 giclees (fine art digital lithographs) reproduced from his original artwork.
