Out of Line: The Art of Jules Feiffer (&) Will Eisner: A Spirited Life: Finally, your books-on-comics of the week, both dealing with NYC institutions. The former is a 272-page Abrams release in which author Martha Fay presents an “illustrated retrospective” of the works of Feiffer, ranging from comics to plays to films. An 11.25″ x 10.5″ hardcover, with introductory texts by Leonard S. Marcus and the late filmmaker Mike Nichols. The latter is an updated TwoMorrows edition of a 2005 Bob Andelman anecdotal biography, which actually began life as an *autobiography* Eisner was preparing with Andelman before the work transitioned into an assemblage of loosely categorical snippets from interviews with seemingly everyone under the sun, proceeding in basically chronological order. Now there’s even more interviews included, along with many color illustrations and a general reformatting of the text into a 256-page hardcover; $40.00 (Feiffer), $39.95 (Eisner).
