A Family Matter book. Will Eisner is a master of his genre. I keep in mind that he was one of the graphic novel genre whenever I pick up one of his books. This book is worth a read

A Family Matter book. This book is worth a read. It's short, but dense and easy to read at the same time. Dec 08, 2014 Aaron rated it liked it. Shelves: comics. This was the book by Eisner I've read, and it may have been a bad place to start. This book was good but it didn't match up to the God-like status Eisner holds in the world of comics. Some parts were impressive but overall it didn't thrill me.

Born in New York City, Will Eisner (1917-2005) was the author of the legendary comic strip The Spirit, as well as fifteen graphic novels and three influential instructional textbooks. The comic industry's top awards, the Eisner Awards, are named in his honor.

Will Eisner’s stories of life in the tenements of New York proved that the funny pages of my youth could just as easily be a place for serious storytelling, for exploring, small, personal, everyday narratives with phenomenal grace and depth. A Family Matteris one of those stories, and while it doesn’t stand alongside the finest works in his catalog, Eisner’s evocative illustrations breathe real life into an otherwise banal story. The other inimitable, unmistakable marks of Eisner’s work are on full display in A Family Matter. Eisner renders facial expressions that tell us more about a character than pages of exposition could in the hands of a lesser craftsman.

  • I'm a true fan of Eisner's work and this book does NOT disappoint,....good story as always and wonderful imagery,....if you collect his work its a must for a collection.

    As we are introduced to each of his sons and daughters, we're given an initial glimpse into their current lives. When they each come over to the party, we're given a glimpse into their past relationship with their father. Family relationships can be complicated, and there is none better than Mr Eisner at exposing the darkness in the souls of men and women while offering a glimmer of light.

  • Family squabbles over money.

    The graphic novel takes place over a short period of time in which the 90th birthday of their father is taking place.

    I've read this story before. It didn't really offer anything super unique to the old story.

  • This is an important, serious book, and it is also an enormously entertaining one. I am ordering it again because it demands to be read more than once, and to be saved, and to be offered to friends. If a friend should not return it, all the more reason to buy another copy, perhaps two or three, and keep things moving!
    Mr. Eisner is unknown to most readers, but if you just possibly were alive and an avid follower of the greatest comics during the beautiful period of the fifties, you know who he is, you used to dream about The Spirit, and you will delight in reading as much of his work as you can. What better reason to try and live forever.
    Do not wait!
