Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: An expanded, full-color deluxe edition of the out-of-print biography that explores the fascinating life of Will Eisner, detailing a more than 70-year career where he spearheaded comics for adult readers and created the first widely accepted graphic novel, A Contract with God

 
Eisner's influence has been felt by such diverse talents as Batman co-creator Bob Kane and Captain America and Fantastic Four co-creator Jack Kirby, as well as underground comics legend R. Crumb and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonists Jules Feiffer and Art Spiegelman - all have hailed Eisner's cinematic approach to comics, and his enduring character The Spirit
 

  
From his childhood to famously turning down a proposal for Superman, to educating Army soldiers in P.S. Magazine, Eisner's personal and professional life is told in dramatic detail.
Author Bob 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, Neal Adams, and his former School of Visual Arts students Patrick McDonnell, Ray Billingsley, Joe Quesada, Batton Lash, John Holmstrom, Florian Bachleda, and Mike Carlin

  
In addition to hundreds 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, Benjamin Herzberg, Scott Hampton, Bo Hampton, 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. 

  
Featuring an insightful introduction by Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Michael Chabon and a Foreword by legendary comic book artist Neal Adams.
