Kitchen Sink Press' Denis Kitchen and John Lind will take guests through the exhibit and discuss the life and work of groundbreaking comics creator Will Eisner. Eisner was a pioneer in the creation of comics during the "Golden Age" of comics during the 1930s and '40s, achieving fame with his iconic crime-fighting hero The Spirit. Many comic greats worked with Eisner, including Jules Feiffer, Jack Kirby, and Al Jaffee. After the Spirit ceased publication, Eisner devoted himself to creating educational and instructional sequential art, a term he coined. In 1978, Eisner once again reinvented himself- and the comic art medium-with his graphic novel, A CONTRACT WITH GOD.Will Eisner's 19 graphic novels and 3 textbooks are still in print in 15 worldwide languages. The prestigious Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards are presented annually at San Diego Comic-Con. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=223980 Society of Illustrators Society of Illustrators
