4.0 out of 5 stars Good but a little 'lite', 26 April 2010
This review is from: Expressive Anatomy for Comics and Narrative: Principles and Practices from the Legendary Cartoonist (Will Eisner Instructional Books) (Paperback)
This book was the one of the three that was perhaps most eagerly anticipated. Eisner showing us how he creates those fantastically expressive characters. As it turned out he died before he could do many drawings for this volume. Exploiting the curiosity of fans and followers (and the desire to have the complete trilogy) the publishers cobbled a version together using some ancient structural poses from the famous early 20th century drawing manuals by Bridgeman and one of Eisner's more proficient acolytes to fill the book with drawings. Most artists interested in Eisner will already own the Bridgeman books and the other Eisneresque drawings are just rather cold apeing of the long earned fluid style of the master. A bit of a disappointment but if you really must complete your collection (and what comic fan doesn't feel that urge?) do buy. This is a pretty flower in the garden of his work, don't expect a mass of blossoms.
