NEW YORK An exhibit called “Will Eisner: Storyteller” will be held at Ohio State University’s Cartoon Research Library from April 2 to June 8. Eisner (1917-2005) created the character of “The Spirit,” who starred in a popular 16-page comic insert distributed in newspapers from 1940 to 1952. He was also a legend in the world of comic books and graphic novels, and taught for many years at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
On April 19, the Wexner Center for the Arts at Ohio State will host a free pre-release screening of a documentary called “Will Eisner: The Spirit of an Artistic Pioneer.”
