THE 80TH ANNIVERSARY OF WILL EISNER’S THE SPIRIT webinar via New York Adventure Club MONDAY, JUNE 1 @8pm EST:
If D. W. Griffith is considered the Father of Film for the many cinematic camera and narrative techniques he pioneered in his career, then Will Eisner (1917-2005) should be considered the Father of the Comic Book.
In his 7-page comic book stories of the non-super-powered masked crimefighter The Spirit (1940-52), Eisner displayed the equivalent groundbreaking narrative and verbal/visual techniques unique to comic book art that defined comic book storytelling for generations.
Join New York Adventure Club and award-winning comic book-style illustrator and historian Arlen Schumer as we present a retrospective overview and tribute to Eisner’s immortal comic book character, The Spirit, on the eve of its 80th Anniversary.
*And if you can’t make the webinar LIVE, buying a ticket allows you to watch a recording of it AFTER!
