| No TrackBacks

2008 Miami Book Fair International
Wednesday, November 12
6:00 p.m., Miami Dade College, Centre Gallery (Bldg. 1, 3rd Floor)

Will Eisner is a true pioneer in creating the world of comics as we know it. From his legendary work in the 1940s on The Spirit, to his groundbreaking graphic novel, A Contract with God, in 1978, and his posthumously published graphic novel, The Plot, in 2005, Eisner's work and passion for this literary format continues to shape contemporary pop culture.

Please join us for an exceptional evening featuring an exhibit of Eisner's original artwork, a multi-media exhibit based upon The Plot, and artworks inspired by Eisner's graphic storytelling. A panel discussion about Eisner's life and work will take place in the gallery, followed by a screening of the award-winning documentary, Will Eisner: Portrait of a Sequential Artist, in the Auditorium (Bldg.1, 2nd Floor).

On the panel: Eisner's editor on The Plot, Bob Weil, vice president and executive editor at W.W. Norton & Company, agents Denis Kitchen and Judy Hansen, and author and comics artist Scott McCloud. The panel will be moderated by Charles Kochman, executive editor of Abrams ComicArts and editor of The Will Eisner Companion.

Free and open to everyone.
