R.I.P. Will Eisner

I'm not that big an Eisner fan, so I'll skip the part where I would otherwise call him "the greatest creator of comics ever," but sequential art legend Will Eisner has died. Go read "Comics and Sequential Art" for an insight into how and why comics work the way they do. Then go read anything else Will Eisner has ever done, from "The Spirit" to "Contract With God" to "Last Day in Vietnam." Some of Eisner's "The Spirit" stories legitimately qualify for consideration for inclusion in the Western literary canon--or they would if The Keepers Of The Canon were not so stuffy.
