    Will Eisner’s Incredible Facts, Amazing Statistics and Monumental Trivia. Page 46 (1974)

    “Politics and Government/Federal Surveillance.” — Watergate-Era Eisner!

    This splash page from 1974’s Incredible Facts, Amazing Statistics and Monumental Trivia taps into the paranoid Watergate zeitgeist with a paranoia page on Federal Surveillance that captures the shadowy sense of eyes watching everywhere. The more things change, the more they stay the same!

    Inspired by underground comix, newsstand humor magazines and book collections of humor cartoons Eisner wrote, illustrated and published a series of humor publications prior to developing the Graphic Novel format in 1978. This page is from the [first?] entry in that series, which would eventually become known as "Gleeful Guides."

    Size/Medium/Condition: Pen and ink with collage elements. The originalon clear vellum measures 8 by 10 inches, glued on to heavyillustration board measuring 10b x 13 inches. Slight background yellowing from ancient rubber cement. But the linework is crisp, clean and uncompromised. Excellent Condition.

    Provenance: The Will Eisner Estate is exclusively represented by the Denis Kitchen Art Agency, an affiliate of Steve Krupp’s Curio Shoppe and Gallery. This drawing is warranted to be an authentic original created by Will Eisner, and sold on behalf of his estate. Note: Image is © Will Eisner Studios, Inc.
