<< Scott [McCloud] shares his thoughts on Will Eisner’s legacy. -Ed.
Will Eisner, American comics pioneer and creator of The Spirit, was born on March 6, 1917. He would have been 94 today.
Many of us who knew him still find it hard to believe he’s gone. He died in 2005, but for six decades, Eisner was a participant in, and inspiration for, much of the best in American comics, as well as a friend and mentor to multiple generations of comics artists.
