I love Will Eisner's artwork and story telling skills. In a medium dominated by superheroes, Will Eisner creates slice-of-life masterpieces that resonate with readers. Characters are drawn in a realistic manner, while the story arcs place ordinary people contending with ordinary circumstances, even extraordinary ones, the many people can relate to.
Had I known these were stories I already read, even in part, I probably wouldn't have bought this book. On the other hand though, I don't regret buying it; nor do I consider re-reading these stories a waste of my time.
So I'm happy to give Will Eisner Reader a 4-star rating.
I'm a retired USAF TACP (Tactical Air Control Party) member, now working for Washington State Emergency Management. In addition to being an Emergency Operations Specialist at my day/night/weekend job, I'm a Foreign Affairs Specialist, gamer and writer.
I maintain three blogs as an on-line platform. "Stern Rake Studio," my central site, explores a variety of topics on gaming, pop-culture and writing. "Station WTFO" is where I post comments and discussions on the national and international issues that concern us. Finally, "The Redshift Chronicles," is a spin-off of "Stern Rake Studio." This site focuses on sci-fi gaming and is home to my long-form webcomic "Breakout from Bongolaan."
