Will Eisner was a pioneering force in comics for more than 60 years. Will Eisner chronicles the career of this influential artist, from the creation of his most famous character, the Spirit, to his contemporary work in the burgeoning field of graphic novels.

The film, screened here as a work-in-progress, is shown in conjunction with the exhibit Will Eisner: Storyteller at Ohio State's Cartoon Research Library, April 2-June 8. (Video, approx. 55 mins.)
