"Comics and Sequential Art is a masterwork, the distillation of Will Eisner's genius to a clear and potent elixir."—Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay.
Will Eisner is one of the twentieth century's great American artists, a man who pioneered the field of comic arts. Here, in his classic Comics and Sequential Art, he refines the art of graphic storytelling into clear, concise principles that every cartoonist, comic artist, writer, and filmmaker meeds to know. Adapted from Eisner's landmark course at New York's School of Visual Arts, Comics and Sequential Art is an essential text filled with invaluable theories and easy-to-use techniques. Eisner reveals here the fundamentals of graphic storytelling. He addresses dialogue, anatomy, framing, and many other important aspects of the art form. Fully updated and revised to reflect current practices and technology, including a section on digital media, this introduction to the art of comics is as valuable a guide as it was when first published.

Editorial Reviews

Jeff Smith
“Indispensable technique from the mind of the master cartoonist who developed them.”
Scott McCloud
“There isn't a comics artist alive who hasn't benefited from Will Eisner's masterful work and formidable vision.”
Neil Gaiman
“When I decided I wanted to write comics, I bought a copy of Will Eisner's Comics and Sequential Art and studied it. If I were starting out today, with all the books on comics and graphic novels out there, I'd still begin with this book.”
Library Journal
This guide by one of the veterans of the industry provides a solid framework in the principles of drawing comic art.

This is the first book that makes an argument for comics as a valid way of self expresion, just as novels or and movies are seen by people every day... Along with the statement of comics=art Eisner also gives valuble instruction to any aspirering comic artist
