Details

Based on Will Eisnerís legendary course at New Yorkís School of Visual Arts, these guides have inspired generations of artists, students, teachers, and fans. In Comics and Sequential Art, Eisner reveals the basic building blocks and principles of comics, including imagery, the frame, and the application of time, space, and visual forms. Graphic Storytelling and Visual Narrative teaches how to control a story effectively using a broad array of techniques.

With examples from Eisnerís own catalog and such masters as H. Foster, R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, Milton Caniff, Al Capp, and George Herriman, these books distill the art of graphic storytelling into principles that every comic artist, writer, and filmmaker should know.

A masterwork. óMichael Chabon

'When I decided I wanted to write comics, I bought a copy.' óNeil Gaiman

'There isnít a comics artist alive who hasnít benefited from Will Eisnerís masterful work and formidable vision.' óScott McCloud
