The Lost Work of Will Eisner (Hardcover)
Will Eisner is one of the defining voices in American comics, and this collection of recently re-discovered strips offer a rare glimpse into the early works of a future master of the form. The two strips are compiled here (one a simple gag a day strip called Uncle Otto, the other, a serialized thriller called Harry Karry) are a great read for anyone interested in the golden age of newspaper comic strips or curious about the first comics made by the man who would go on to draw some of the best comics ever made.— Chris Andersen
Unearthed as part of a massive collection of pre-WWII newspaper printing plates, the mid-1930s comic strips UNCLE OTTO and HARRY KARRY represent the earliest known cartooning of the great comics and sequential art pioneer Will Eisner. In these strips you can see the young Eisner's imagination expanding, as he experiments with the possibilities of serialized storytelling and works through his numerous influences. The comics collected within document the genesis of one of the most iconic and brilliant cartoonists of all time.
