KZ: What kind of a teacher Will Eisner was and what have you learnt from him?
A.R.:He was very patient, at least with me and my friends, who were very cocky at the time and probably were not as deferential to him as I would probably be now. We were young and thought we knew everything, but I’d like to think he took it in a good spirit. I think he really enjoyed teaching, since I imagine having to teach others is a good way of always thinking about what you’re doing in your own work.
I don’t think I made any impression on him. I was very lazy in school and didn’t do as much work as I should have. When I bumped into him a few years later he was polite about it but he had hundreds of students over the years and I don’t think I did anything that would’ve stuck with him.
