Will Eisner, R.I.P. 

Comics genius, noir master and pioneer of the "graphic novel," dead at 87. A nice (and profusely illustrated) appreciation by Scott Tipton is here. An interview Eisner gave just after 9/11 is here.

So, you want to direct? Read Comics and Sequential Art first.

Dead, huh? They said the
same thing about Denny Colt.
Did he ever let that stop him?

UPDATE: Which is not, of course, to slight the late, great Kelly Freas.
