Will Eisner Original Art: TO THE HEART OF THE STORM, pg 78 (1991) * NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE *
WILL EISNER (1917-2005) • To the Heart of
the Storm (1991) Page 78. “Eisner as a young newsboy
most overtly autobiographical work is To The Heart of
the Storm, the story of his own family and their
multi-generational struggle with anti-Semitism. During
the Great Depression Eisner had to early on help support
his family by hawking newspapers on Wall Street in New
York City. This page depicts the young Eisner caught
between two rough
characters who characterized the cutthroat periodical
distribution business. The final panel contains a
significant foretelling phrase: Uncle Louie tells young
Will, “So sell, don’t dream.” Eisner’s autobiographical
story about entering the comics business is called The Dreamer.
This original page is a sweet piece of comic book
