Will Eisner is coined as the father of the graphic novel. An American cartoonist, he formed today’s modern comic by developing the visual narrative and sequential art. After his death, the Eisner Award was named after him, an award given by those who greatly achieve in the comic book industry. Labeled as one of the most influential comic book artists of all time, Will Eisner is annually celebrated through Will Eisner Week, celebrating his seventy years and eight decades of life-long accomplishments.
Today we want to celebrate too. Stop in-store today between 1-3 P.M. and we will be handing out free comics (while supplies last) in honor of Mr. Eisner’s art. Rumor has it you might even see a few costumed crusaders throughout the store who are excited to meet you as well!
