|Eisner by Eisner|
While I’m by no means an Eisner completist, I have a particular affection for one particular period of his work and recognise his influence in other creators I love.
Back when my first comic shop in London was floundering and I’d read everything on the shleves that I wanted to, the local Islington library which was ably supplied (by us) through a lovely lady called Sue with all kinds of good stuff (or certainly had been).
It’s where I read Sandman (out of order) but more importantly Cowboy Wally, Will Eisner’s Space Spirit and Will Eisner’s Contract with God. Space Spirit was an exposure to Wally Wood’s brilliance rather than Will Eisner.
