Eisner Dies

Will Eisner, the comic book and graphic novel legend, died on Monday. I only met him once, at a book signing at an American Book Expo where he graciously personalized a copy of Dropsie Avenue for me, but I miss him. He was a master of the sequential art form and did more to bring it respectability and literary weight than anyone else in the field. We should all aspire to be so passionate about our work and to lift it to such heights.
