Summaries and Reviews
A dramatic account of the innovator of the modern-day comic book and graphic novel celebrates the creator of The Spirit--the first super-antihero in comics--offering fascinating details of the illustrator's life and career. Original. description: Product Description: The Spirit's creator is immortalized in TwoMorrows' Deluxe Edition of Will Eisner: A Spirited Life

So much more than just a new printing, this expanded, full-color hardcover Deluxe Edition of Bob Andelman's out-of-print biography explores the fascinating life of Will Eisner, detailing a more than 70-year career in which he spearheaded comics for adult readers and created the first widely accepted graphic novel, A Contract with God.

From his childhood to famously turning down a proposal for Superman, to educating Army soldiers in P.S. Magazine and creating The Spirit, Eisner's personal and professional life is told in dramatic detail. Andelman spent almost three years interviewing Eisner prior to his passing, researching his life and work and interviewing friends, family, and colleagues including Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, Neil Gaiman, Denis Kitchen, Joe Kubert, Stan Lee, Jules Feiffer, Jim Warren, Dave Sim, Denny O'Neil, Neal Adams, and Patrick McDonnell.

In addition to dozens of full-color images from Will's archives and private collections (not found in the original edition), this expanded Deluxe Edition includes a series of new interviews with Drew Friedman, Howard Chaykin, Darwyn Cooke, Sergio Aragones, Ken Quattro, Michael Uslan, and others, which clear the air on some topics left unfinished by the first edition, and add depth to the reader's knowledge of Eisner's body of work.

It features an insightful introduction by Michael Chabon, and a Foreword by Neal Adams.
