Comics Ate My Brain

Will Eisner, 1917-2005

Will Eisner, one of the true giants in comics, passed away yesterday. He was most famous for his masked detective called The Spirit, but he was also arguably the author of the modern graphic novel. He literally wrote the book — Comics & Sequential Art — on graphic storytelling, something not even Jack Kirby could claim to have done. He will be missed.

As it happens, David over at Yet Another Comics Blog was encouraging people to treat themselves to an Eisner book, so I’ll second his suggestion.
