  • 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.

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 Patrick McDonnell.
