illustrated presentation - The Spirit of Comics : The Life & Art of Will Eisner

Only one name stretches from the beginning of the history of the comic book through the modern era of the literary graphic novel: Will Eisner.

On Monday, March 23rd, comics writer and critic Danny Fingeroth (author of Disguised as Clark Kent: Jews Comics, and the Creation of the Superhero) will give an illustrated presentation about the life, work, and influence of the great writer and artist.

Taking a tour through Eisner's life - in effect, a journey through comics history - the presentation will serve as an introduction to those who'd like to know more about how the graphic novel phenomenon (which has spawned hit comics-based movies like The Dark Knight and Watchmen), and will offer new insights for those who may already know the work of Eisner and his creative descendants.
