Comment

Pour un commentaire sur l'importance de l'oeuvre dans la BD américaine (et mondiale), je vous renvoie vers https://www.2dgalleries.com/art/a-contract-with-god-cookalein-p1-147312

Si cette planche m'a plu c'est qu'elle est assez "représentative" de ce que j'aime chez Will Eisner: la ville mais aussi la représentation "dramatique" des personnages et un découpage original repris par le panorama au centre des 2 strips, extraite d'une BD qui m'avait marqué quand j'avais 20-25 ans.

About Will Eisner

William Erwin "Will" Eisner (March 6, 1917 – January 3, 2005) was an American cartoonist, writer, and entrepreneur. He was one of the earliest cartoonists to work in the American comic book industry, and his series The Spirit (1940–1952) was noted for its experiments in content and form. In 1978, he popularized the term "graphic novel" with the publication of his book A Contract with God. He was an early contributor to formal comics studies with his book Comics and Sequential Art (1985). The Eisner Award was named in his honor, and is given to recognize achievements each year in the comics medium; he was one of the three inaugural inductees to the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.
