The great Will Eisner would have been 100 years old yesterday, March 6, 2017. Eisner was a comic book pioneer during the Golden Age of Comic Books and is known as the father of the graphic novel. He is certainly one of the most important comic book creators. Eisner created a large volume of work, but is best known for his creation of The Spirit (Denny Colt) who began appearing in weekly Sunday newspaper funny sections on June 2, 1940. We covered the Spirit in the 12th episode of the Golden Age of Comic Books Podcast (audio to be uploaded soon).
