    WILL EISNER (1917-2005) • Original short story (lot of 2)
    “Moment of Glory” (2001)

    The vast majority of Will Eisner’s comic art pages pages are in crisp black and white, certainly including each and every Spirit story from the Golden Age of Comics. But later in his career he periodically added wash tones to hard line art in some short stories. “Wash” is a gray tone created by diluting dense black India ink with water: the more water that is added, the lighter the gray becomes, and for a master artist like Eisner, this unlimited tonal range simply created a broader palette with which to work. The technique works well on this 2-page story, “Moment of Glory,” created for Dark Horse’s Maverick line in 2001. The short morality tale is a twist on the Aladdin’s Lamp fable.

    Medium/Size/Condition: Brush, pen, ink and wash on Bristol boards measuring 11 x 14 inches, which Will in turn taped on to heavy illustration board measuring 11.5 x 16 inches. . The image itself is 4.75 x 13.75 inches. Some might choose to remove the white tape and free the Bristol Board pages from their backdrops, but we presume nothing and offer Will’s art “as-is.” There is slight curling on some of the white tape, but otherwise excellent condition.

    Price: $2,500 for the lot of 2 pages
