More About the Author

WILL EISNER was born on March 6, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York, USA. By the time of his death on January 3, 2005, Will Eisner was recognized internationally as one of the giants in the field of sequential art, a term he coined.

In a career that spanned nearly eight decades -- from the dawn of the comic book to the advent of digital comics - Will Eisner was truly the 'Father of the Graphic Novel' and the 'Orson Welles of Comics.' He broke new ground in the development of visual narrative and the language of comics and was the creator of The Spirit, John Law, Lady Luck, Mr. Mystic, Uncle Sam, Blackhawk, Sheena, and countless others.

During World War II, Will Eisner developed the comic format to for training and equipment maintenance manuals for the US Army. After the war this continued as the Army's "PS Magazine" which is still being produced today. Will Eisner taught Sequential Art at the New York School of Visual Arts for 20 years. The textbooks that he wrote were based on his course and are still bestsellers. In 1978, Will Eisner wrote "A Contract with God," the first modern Graphic Novel. This was followed by almost 20 additional graphic novels over the following 25 years.

The "Oscars" of the Comic Industry are called The Eisner Awards, and named after Will Eisner. The Eisners are presented annually before a packed ballroom at San Diego Comic-Con, America's largest comics convention.

Wizard magazine named Eisner "the most influential comic artist of all time." Michael Chabon's Pulitzer-prize winning novel "Kavalier and Clay" is based in good part on Eisner. In 2002, Eisner received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Federation for Jewish Culture, presented by Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman.

WARNING: Kindle Version unreadably small... except in Chrome browser 23 Mar. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
UPDATE:
Raised the review from 1-star to 2-stars. I was finally able to read the book using the Chrome extension "Cloud Reader" from Amazon. Some of the text is still small but there at least Cloud Reader has a, albeit clumsy, zoom feature.

In short: the book is great. The format is dreadful.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

This is really a complaint about the Kindle viewers.

On my phone and pad, the Kindle version is too small to read and there are no controls to zoom in.

On my full-screen Windows 7 PC, the Kindle version PC is "incompatible with this device" and cannot be downloaded and read at all.

What a waste.

If I'm ever able to read it, I'll leave a review.
