Eisner’s Incredible Facts, Amazing Statistics
and Monumental Trivia. Page 9 (1974)
Eisner works blue! This delightful page from Incredible
Facts, Amazing Statistics and Monumental Trivia shows Will
Eisner tossing his hat into the 1970s
humor ring, juxtaposing sexual revolution era research
with some of his most fleshy and cartoony figure art.
The naked top figures holding fig leafs evoke Adam &
Eve. The bottom illustration depicts a very needy female
and exhausted sexual partner.
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 an early entry in
that series, which would eventually become known as
and ink with collage elements. The original measures 8
by 10.25 inches on clear vellum that has been lightly
glued to heavy 10 x 13.25 inch illustration board, with
a protective vellum overlay taped onto the board,
cintaininbg pencil editorial corrections in Eisner’s
handwriting. Some discoloration of stats and rubber
cement after nearly 50 years, but the linework is clean
and uncompromised. Excellent overall condition.
