Publisher's Summary

In Will Eisner: A Dreamer's Life in Comics, Michael Schumacher delves beneath Eisner's public persona to draw connections between his life and his art. Eisner's career spanned a remarkable eight decades, from his scrappy survival at the dawn of comics' Golden Age in the late 1930s to the beginning of the 21st century, when Pulitzers began going to graphic novels (a term Eisner is widely credited with creating). Schumacher's extensive research and interviews with Eisner's family, friends, and colleagues, as well as other comics creators who have built upon his work, create a detailed portrait of Eisner the man and Eisner the artist.

    "A Legend Introduced"

    I started reading this because I'm doing research and wanted to know a bit more about the man. What I discovered was an incredibly complex individual who defined and redefined the world of graphic storytelling over the years. Having the comics industry's highest award named for him is certainly applicable.

    On the down side, Schumacher will occasionally veer into side paths and stories which, while sometimes tangentially related, often feel as though they are there for padding. As well, Morey's narration of the main text is fine, but he's got only two other voices he uses for pretty much everyone else. I suppose I've gotten spoiled by the generally high quality of the Audible narrators.
