 11/23/99

Will Eisner
Part One

  I just want to write 'Nuff Said! here, for how can I adequately describe one of the giants of sequential art, whose name is mentioned in 'Nuff Said! interviews probably more than any other. What Orson Wells is to film directing, Will Eisner is to comics, and more. The creator and artist of The Spirit, co-creator with Jerry Iger and a great pool of talent of nearly all of the Quality line of comics back in the '30s and '40s. Live this week, continued on tape 2/22/00. Portions were repeated 1/19/05. With Jeff Lindenblatt.

  Jim (not the creator of Garfield) Davis was one of the top humor writer / artists of comics from the '40s to the '60s, but is now almost forgotten.

Before his recent retirement, he was head of production at Marvel and instituted "Romita's Raiders," an apprentice program that brought a lot of new talent into the business. We also had an interesting discussion of comics as commercial art and of the Kefauver Senate hearings in the '50s. This was a Membership Drive special recorded at a recent Big Apple Con.
