The great Will Eisner has passed away.

Will Eisner: 1917-2005

Eisner was one of my heroes growing up. His book Comics and Sequential Art is THE must-read title for any budding comic artist and his influence on the medium cannot be over-estimated. He leaves behind an amazing wealth of exceptional work - including, but by no means limited to - his most famous creation, The Spirit.

Do yourself a favor and pick up some of his newly re-released books. Start with A Contract With God and work your way onward from there.

He will be missed.
