Most Helpful Customer Reviews
If you like Eisner's "The Spirit", you'll like this. His storytelling is smart, and the art is welldone. This presentation for the Nook however is poor. Most importantly, the images are only about half the size of the screen. There is no way to zoom in, nor a way to enlarge the text. The makes some of the text practically unreadable, and is certainly a disservice to the artwork. If this could be republished with larger size images and with zooming ability, it would be a great Nook library addition. Until that happens, I'd recommend buying the paper version.
Will Eisner was a genius. Each story captivates and teaches. For those who have not read this. Begin now and know that you were better for it.
