    Will Eisner’s Incredible Facts, Amazing Statistics and Monumental Trivia. Page 27 (1974)

    Eisner deploys his finest expressive anatomy in this humorous page depicting a group of middle-aged men reacting to research about declining male longevity in a page from Eisner’s rarely seen 1974 book incredible Facts, Amazing Statistics, and Monumental Trivia. The crisp line work showcases Eisner’s well-honed draftsmanship and reveals him rediscovering playfulness in his approach to drawing figures. Such wonderfully expressive faces!

    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 entry in that series, which would eventually become known as "Gleeful Guides."

    Size/Medium/Condition: Pen, brush and ink with paste-up elements (mechanical lettering). The original measures 8.25 x 11.5 inches on clear vellum which has been lightly glued onto 10 by 13 inch heavy illustration board. An additional protective vellum overlay is taped onto the board, which contains some type corrections in Eisner’s handwriting. Some discoloration of stats and rubber cement after nearly 50 years. But the linework is clean and uncompromised. Overall excellent condition.

    Provenance: The Will Eisner Estate is exclusively represented by the Denis Kitchen Art Agency, an affiliate of Steve Krupp’s Curio Shoppe and Gallery. This drawing is warranted to be an authentic original created by Will Eisner, and sold on behalf of his estate. Note: Image is © Will Eisner Studios, Inc.
