Will Eisner Original Art: Page 11 from Last Day in Vietnam (2000) * NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE *
Page 11 from cover story in Last
in Vietnam (2000).
This graphic novel departed from the pattern
and setting of the majority of Eisner�s domestic stories. Last Day
in Vietnam recounts stories Eisner heard and witnessed firsthand
while in the military or while doing research for PS magazine,
which he produced for the U.S. Army as a civilian. This lead story
takes place during the Vietnam War, and the voice-over on this page is
a military escort (clearly not a combat veteran) talking to Eisner
himself on a helicopter.
Size/Medium/Condition/Price: Last Day in Vietnam is
not typical of Eisner�s other graphic novels: to get the �gritty�
effect he wanted, Eisner drew this story with brush and ink but with a
grease pencil on a textured pebble board for the unusual textured
effect over the line art. It measures 12 by 16 inches. The reverse has
the official Eisner Studio rubber stamp. The original is in excellent
condition. Price: $900
