Happy Will Eisner Week, everyone! In honor of Will’s birthday (tomorrow, March 6th) and to take part in the annual Will Eisner Week celebration, the blog will be updated daily with Eisner as our focus, including selections from The Will Eisner Collection here at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. The collection contains original and published work by Eisner and by various artists who worked for him, as well as correspondence, articles, and commercial publications. You can browse the finding aid for this collection here.
