Description

Bon soyons honnête une page du Spirit étant hors de portée de ma bourse et vouant une admiration certaine à ce bon vieux Will, j'ai du me reporter sur une forme de second choix, mais la belle composition (une sorte de splash page sans en être une vraiment non plus),le travail sur les hachures et surtout la profonde humanité voire la drôlerie se dégageant des personnages m'ont permis de faire mon deuil des noirs profonds et contrastées que j'adore sur beaucoup de planches du Spirit.

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.
