MoCCA show on Will Eisner

A belated blog post on going to the opening of the exhibit MoCCA has up on Will Eisner’s work. Amazing how the museum can put up so much in a relatively small space. There’s a wealth of gorgeous originals from full color paintings to comics pages in B&W by him that are awesome.

Also very interesting are the many comics pages famous artists contributed to the exhibit as well which were tributes to Eisner. From Spiegelman to an amazing piece by Neal Adams which must have taken him a coupla years, has a cast of thousands, each face a famous figure of the day.

My compliments to Danny Fingeroth and Denis Kitchen, the curators, for a job very well done. Impressive.

It brought back memories which I shared with a few at the opening of our working with Will. Always very outgoing and warm. It’s a cherished memory to have gone to visit him at his studio/office in Florida, to have met and gone out with him and his wife Ann. An inspiring leader for our industry and yet always very easy to approach.

Anyway, if you’re in NY, check this out.
