CBR: Remembering Will Eisner at NYCC

Comic Book Resources' Brigid Alverson takes us to the recent panel at New York Comic Con:

"Will Eisner's New York" turned out not to be the most accurate name for the New York Comic Con panel devoted to the creator of The Spirit; although a slideshow of 's drawings of the neighborhoods of New York played on a screen throughout the panel, the conversation consisted mainly of memories of the man himself.

Most of the panel members had a personal or professional connection with Eisner: Michael Schumacher, the author of the upcoming biography "Will Eisner: A Dreamer's Life in Comics"; Denis Kitchen, Eisner's longtime publisher and the representative of his estate; David Hajdu, a professor at Columbia University and author of "The Ten-Cent Plague"; Paul Levitz, former president of DC Comics, who worked with Eisner on "The Spirit Library" and wrote an eight-page Spirit story; and Jules Feiffer, who worked in Eisner's studio and recently published his memoir, "Backing into Forward." Comics writer Arie Kaplan moderated the panel which began on a cordial note with the panelists autographing each other's books.
