"Comics and Sequential Art is a masterwork, the distillation of Will Eisner's genius to a clear and potent elixir." Michael Chabon

Will Eisner is one of the twentieth century's great American artists, a man who pioneered the field of comic arts. Here, in his classic Comics and Sequential Art, he refines the art of graphic storytelling into clear, concise principles that every cartoonist, comic artist, writer, and filmmaker meeds to know. Adapted from Eisner's landmark course at New York's School of Visual Arts, Comics and Sequential Art is an essential text filled with invaluable theories and easy-to-use techniques. Eisner reveals here the fundamentals of graphic storytelling. He addresses dialogue, anatomy, framing, and many other important aspects of the art form. Fully updated and revised to reflect current practices and technology, including a section on digital media, this introduction to the art of comics is as valuable a guide as it was when first published.

Review:

"Indispensable technique from the mind of the master cartoonist who developed them." --Jeff Smith, creator of Bone

"There isn't a comics artist alive who hasn't benefited from Will Eisner's masterful work and formidable vision." --Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics"

"When I decided I wanted to write comics, I bought a copy of Will Eisner's Comics and Sequential Art and studied it. If I were starting out today, with all the books on comics and graphic novels out there, I'd still begin with this book." --Neil Gaiman

Synopsis:

Norton presents here two classic drawing textbooks, revised and enhanced for a new generation. Based on Will Eisner's legendary course at New York's School of Visual Arts, these guides have inspired generations of artists, students, teachers and fans. In "Comics and Sequential Art", Eisner reveals the basic building blocks and principles of comics, including imagery, the frame, and the application of time, space and visual forms. "Graphic Storytelling and Visual Narrative" teaches how to control a story effectively using a broad array of techniques. With examples from Eisner's own catalogue and such masters as R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, Milton Caniff, H. Foster, Al Capp and George Herriman, these books distill the art of graphic storytelling into principles that every comic artist, writer and filmmaker should know.
