The unprecedented amount of attention being thrown Will Eisner’s way this year has raised an interesting issue on the boards: whose signature came first?

As Eisner’s biographer, I can’t say I know or that I remember asking Will. And I asked Andrew D. Cooke, who produced and director the Eisner documentary, Will Eisner: Portrait of a Sequential Artist, and he didn’t know or ask either.

Anyone care to weigh in, here or there? Maybe Denis Kitchen knows?
