Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Will Eisner, the grandmaster of comic book art, died yesterday at the age of 87.

His work was a testament to the beauty of sequential-art craft and the elegance of graphic storytelling. He leaves behind a legacy that’ll be hard to match.

If the only “Eisner” you’ve ever heard of is Disney CEO Michael, then do yourself a favor and pick up one of Will’s graphic novels. Personally, I recommend “Life on Another Planet” (aka “Signal From Space”), “The Building”, “A Contract with God”, and “The Dreamer”. And you can’t go wrong with the Spirit collections.
