Will Eisner Original Ink Art
WILL EISNER (1917-2005). Title/date/description: Science Fiction illustration, "Hello, Huston
[sic]!" (~1988). Note that Eisner misspelled "Houston."
We don't know if this was corrected prior to publication since
we don't know where it was published. The futuristic gag cartoon
was drawn by Eisner at the request of illustrator and friend
Kelly Freas (who, ironically, died the very same day as
Eisner). This is believed to have appeared in a Bridge Publications
title, one of two or three illustrations Eisner provided to Freas.
Eisner stopped doing these when he discovered that Bridge was
the publishing arm of L. Ron Hubbard's Scientology religion.
This is a very rare example of a science fiction illustration
by Will Eisner. [If you know which publication this illustration
appeared please contact us so the archival record can be complete.]
