Here’s what the folks at MultiversityComics.com had to say about this unique combo package:
“This isn’t the first Eisner-related entry in this month’s list, and these items have actually been solicited earlier this year, but they haven’t been combined like this until now and it’s worth bending the rules a little to shine some light on this because it’s such a great deal.

“Eisner’s life and career in comics spanned almost all of what one would consider recorded history of the American comics market. From its infancy in the 1930’s to his passing in 2005, if it happened in mainstream comics, Eisner either did it or talked with those who did. “A Spirited Life” being available in a revised edition is wonderful enough (it’s a Twomorrows history book; what more do you need to know), but being coupled with the excellent Eisner doc gives you the opportunity to hear Eisner talk about his experiences in his own voice, humanizing him and his life even more.

And if THAT wasn’t enough, the documentary DVD includes all the audio interviews Eisner recorded for his ‘Shop Talk’ book. Imagine finding out Will Eisner had frank podcast discussions with Jack Kirby, Harvey Kurtzman, Milton Caniff, Neal Adams, Joe Kubert, Gil Kane, Jack Davis, and more. And like these weren’t puff pieces; they were pros talking shop (and some smack here and there) and as a look back into the mindset of an earlier generation and a different perspective, they are fascinating. They alone make getting this worthwhile, so do yourself a favor and make this happen.”
