(This review refers to the original, 2005 edition, of Will Eisner: A Spirited Life. It is referenced here because we had never seen it before and everything the reviewer liked back then is back plus lots more in the new, deluxe edition from Twomorrows Publishing.)
Review by Wendy Wasman
Will Eisner, prolific cartoonist and “grandfather” of the modern-day graphic novel, died in January, 2005. Although much has been published about Eisner and his literary output, Andelman’s biography is the first to explore all facets of his fascinating life and six-decade career in the comics industry. Much of Andelman’s information has been gleaned from extensive interviews with Eisner and the many colleagues who have been influenced over the years by his work.
