An audiobook narrated by author Bob Andelman, Will Eisner: A Spirited Life is the authorized biography that explores Eisner’s amazing life, detailing a career that spanned 70 years. The biography features interviews with many of Eisner’s contemporaries, such as Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, Neil Gaiman, Denis Kitchen, Jim Warren, Dave Sim, Denny O’Neil, and Stan Lee.
Bob spent almost three years interviewing Eisner, researching his life and work, and interviewing friends, family, and the creative talents the comics master inspired throughout his career.
Internationally recognized for his genre-busting 1940s art and storytelling style on The Spirit, Will Eisner’s greatest legacy may be the graphic novels he championed and created. A Spirited Life explores Eisner’s amazing life, detailing a career that spanned 70 years and saw him educate several generations of Army soldiers in the innovative PS magazine and create the first widely known graphic novel, A Contract with God.
