    WILL EISNER • Original cover art (Lot of 2)
    “Graphic Storytelling cover” (1996)

    Will Eisner cover art is increasingly difficult to find. This example is from Will’s second of three instructional books, Graphic Storytelling, which he originally self-published under his Poorhouse Press imprint in 1996. Eisner used cave people, possibly Neanderthals, to underscore the fact that storytelling goes very deep into the human past, and that drawings on cave walls may be our earliest evidence of telling stories with pictures, known today as comics. In this example, the cave wall panels tell the story of a successful hunt.

    Medium/Size/Condition: Brush and ink on slightly irregular Bristol board measuring close to 5 x 7 inches. Excellent condition. The original drawing comes with a copy of the actual book.

    Further reference: Much other Eisner art, plus out-of-print graphic novels, Spirit comic books and magazines, signed serigraphs, his Famous Cartoonist Button, and numerous other Eisner-related items are accessible from Steve Krupp’s Curio Shoppe.

    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.
