    Will Eisner’s Incredible Facts, Amazing Statistics and Monumental Trivia. Page 9 (1974)

    “SEX.” Will 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. 

    Inspired by 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 "Gleeful Guides." 

    Size/Medium/Condition: Pen 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.
