9780878160174: A Contract With God

In 1978, Will Eisner, creator of the spirit and one of the most influential comic artist of all time, revolutionized the comics field with the publication of a contract with god, the first modern graphic novel. Drawing on his memories of growing up in the bronx in the 1930s, Eisner created a series of moving, thematically related stories exploring the immigrant experience and their struggle with life in new nation. In the coming months, DC will publish 11 more graphic novels from The Will Eisner Library, along with the spirit archives.

Review:

It's fair to say that Will Eisner invented modern comic art. A Contract with God has been called the first graphic novel, and its divergence from traditional comics themes and forms highlights Eisner's foresight and brilliance. Dealing with stories and memories from his childhood in a Bronx tenement, he explores the brutality, fragility, and tenderness possible among people living in close quarters close to the poverty line. The four stories here are tough but funny, deep but finely detailed, much like the traditional Jewish stories he drew upon to flavor his own work. Ending reflectively (and perhaps autobiographically), A Contract with God shows us a young man peering out into his city as he decides whether and how to face adulthood. You won't see that in the funny papers. --Rob Lightner
