NY Times obit


Washington Post obit and rememberence.

A nice journal entry from Neil Gaiman in which he notes that having Eisner teaching a class on comics was "like getting God in to run your Bible Studies Group."

Oh, and willeisner.com.

Until much later in my life, I never knew how influential and innovative Will Eisner was until I read some of his "How To" books for comics. He was truly a man who knew how to tell a story and present it in comic form, and made it exciting to read from panel to panel. Truly one of the greats in comic circles, and IMO, contemporary art in general.
