From former Will Eisner student Brian Postman:

i just discovered this photo existed 2 days ago!….it’s from 1978-1979,and it’s will’s class at sva…i’m in it to the right of will…also mike carlin, keith williams, mike clark, bob pizzo, bob dunn, kevin yenosonis…. this was taken by a classmate with mike clark’s camera….this would have been a great photo for your book,but i know it’s too late….anyway i thought you’d get a kick out of seeing it.
