Will Eisner Original Art: The Long Hit, page 2 (1986) * NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE *
�The Long Hit,� page 2. (1986). Originally appeared in Will
Eisner�s Quarterly #8 then was collected in The Will Eisner
Reader (Kitchen Sink Press/DC Comics/W. W. Norton).
masterful story, a mob hit man bungles an assignment in 1934, then half
a century later finds himself retired in Florida, where he sees the man
he was hired to kill much earlier. This story coincides with Will
Eisner�s own �retirement� in Florida, where he still accomplished a
great deal of work before his demise in 2005. In this wonderful
composition Eisner has a palm tree from the bottom panel (the present)
literally overlapping the flashback panels above. An outstanding
example of Eisner�s always inventive page layouts.
This �Long Hit� page measures 11 by 14 inches. Drawn with pen, brush
and ink on Bristol board. Excellent condition. Price: $1,500
