Eisner in Brooklyn (and in your Library)

Eisner's A Contract with God at Scott Eder Gallery

We’re about half-way through a 2 month exhibit in Brooklyn’s Scott Eder Gallery of original art from Will Eisner‘s seminal 1978 tenement comic, A Contract with God, which helped set off the graphic novel movement.  It’s the first time this art, including original pages as well as preparatory sketches & drawings, is on view (and for sale, if you got that kind of money), so definitely worth a visit.

Also, I mentioned the Will Eisner Award for Libraries, awarded at the annual American Library Association conference (which I was at), and this year’s winners are listed here; lucky you if you happen to be served by the Auburn GA, Middlebury IN, or East Meadow NY library systems…  Here’s the full list of comics they all got.
