In conjunction with the book’s release, there will be two Portland-based events in partnership with Dark Horse Comics and its sister company, Things From Another World, in support of Will Eisner Week, an annual celebration promoting graphic novels, literacy, free-speech awareness, and the legacy of Will Eisner.
First, join Dark Horse’s editor of Eisner’s works, Diana Schutz, as she gives a special talk, “Will Eisner: Father of the Graphic Novel,” at the Art Institute of Portland on Wednesday, March 6, at 7 p.m. There will be a Q & A session to follow, some very special prizes and giveaways, and catering by the Culinary Arts program. Admission is free.
