Read full description of the books Ein Vertrag mit Gott:Ein Vertrag mit Gott ist ein Meilenstein der Comic-Literatur. Mit seiner Reminiszenz an das jüdische Mietshausmilieu der 1920- und 30er Jahre lotet Will Eisner die Grenzen des Erzählens in Bildern aus und bereitet den Weg für die Gattung der Graphic Novel. In den weiteren Geschichten dieses Bandes kehrt Eisner zurück in die Dropsie Avenue, eine fiktive Straße in der New Yorker Bronx, und schafft mit seinen Erinnerungen ein sehr persönliches Porträt urbanen Lebens und eine schillernde Hommage an seine Heimatstadt in der realistischen Tradition amerikanischer Erzähler wie John Dos Passos oder John Steinbeck.
Read information about the authorWill Eisner was born on March 6, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. 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 used the comic format to develop 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.
