Synopsis

Winner of the 2001 Harvey Award Best Graphic Album of Original Work for "Last Day in Vietnam", Will Eisner is a master of the comics medium, and when he got together to chat with other masters of the medium, what came of it was a collection of information vital to everyone working in the industry, and indispensable to anyone looking to get into it. Featuring interviews with Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Gil Kane, Joe Kubert, Jack Davis, Neal Adams, C.C. Beck, Milton Caniff, Gill Fox, Harvey Kurtzman, and distribution guru Phil Seuling, Will Eisner's "Shop Talk" is chock full of golden tidbits of comics knowledge. Previously serialized in the now long out-of-print "Spirit Magazine" and Will Eisner's "Quarterly", the interviews flow naturally into a compendium of technical secrets, light-hearted anecdotes, and informative history lessons.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Will Eisner was born William Erwin Eisner on March 6, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. By the time of his death on January 3, 2005, Will Eisner was recognized internationally as one of the giants in the field of sequential art, a term he coined. In a career that spanned nearly eight decades from the dawn of the comic book to the advent of digital comics Will Eisner was truly the 'Orson Welles of comics' and the 'father of the Graphic Novel'. He broke new ground in the development of visual narrative and the language of comics and was the creator of The Spirit, John Law, Lady Luck, Mr. Mystic, Uncle Sam, Blackhawk, Sheena and countless others. During World War II, Will Eisner used the comic format to develop training and equipment maintenance manuals for the US Army. After the war this continued as the Army's P.S. Magazine, which is still being produced today. Will Eisner taught Sequential Arts at the New York School of Visual Arts. The textbooks that he wrote based on his course are still bestsellers. In 1978, Will Eisner wrote A Contract with God, the first modern graphic novel. This was followed by almost 20 additional graphic novels over the following 25 years. The "Oscars" of the Comic Industry are called The Eisner Awards, and named after Will Eisner. The Eisners are presented annually before a packed ballroom at Comic-Con International in San Diego, America's largest comics convention. Wizard magazine named Eisner "the most influential comic artist of all time." Michael Chabon's Pulitzer-prize winning novel The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay is based in good part on Eisner. In 2002, Eisner received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Federation for Jewish Culture, only the second such honor in the organization's history, presented by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman.

WhenStan Kirby?was 6-years-old, he tied a beach towel around his neck and became Super Commander Beach Boy. He tried his best to protect sand castles from the waves, keep seagulls away from his French fries and keep the beach clean.

When Stan's not creating the awesome adventures of Captain Awesome, he loves reading comic books, eating okra and hang-gliding (but?"not"?at the same time).

Jack Kirby (1917-1994)isone of the unqualified giants in American comic book history.His most famous co-creation, Captain America, is in a major motion picture film franchise from Marvel Studios.

Caniff earned worldwide acclaim at the helm of Terry and the pirates in the '30s and '40s, but eventually rebelled against his syndicate's editorial oversight and ownership of copyright to his work. Leveraging his global reputation, Caniff launched Canyon in 1947 under his own copyright and syndicated it himself. Canyon ran until 1988.

In addition to his pioneering work on the serious EC war comics, Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) created the all-time greatest satirical comic (with Mad), the most widely-read adult comic strip (with Little Annie Fanny in Playboy), and one of the earliest graphic novels (with the 1959 The Jungle Book).

Von Jo84 TOP 500 REZENSENT am 2. Dezember 2010
Format: Taschenbuch
Dieses amerikanische Buch aus dem Verlag Dark Horse erschien 2001 und enthält Interviews,die die Comiclegende Will Eisner zwischen 1981 und 1984 mit anderen Legenden des Comicbereiches führte. Diese wurden damals in den Magazinen "The Spirit Magazine" und "Will Eisners Quarterly" abgedruckt. Auf den 338 S. im Taschenbuchformat 23 x 15 cm befinden sich Interviews mit den Comiczeichnern Neal Adams,Milton Caniff,Jack Davis,Lou Fine,Gil Kane,Jack Kirby,Joe Kubert,Harvey Kurtzman,Joe Simon und C.C.Beck. Ebenfalls ist ein Interview mit Phil Seuling enthalten,der viel für die Comics tat,indem er neue Vertriebsstrukturen öffnete. Garniert wurden die Interviews mit Fotos,eigenen Zeichnungen von Eisner und vielen Abbildungen und Arbeitsproben der interviewten Künstler.
Die Interviews fanden in lockerer Gesprächsatmosphäre statt und präsentieren Insider unter sich. Man muß schon ein bißchen Ahnung haben um nachvollziehen zu können,was für Giganten des Comicbereiches hier Rede und Antwort stehen. Trotzdem bleibt meist alles auch für Comicneulinge verständlich. Gerade angehende Zeichner können die verschiedenen Arbeitsweisen der Künstler,nach denen Eisner hauptsächlich fragt,gut vergleichen und dann feststellen,dass jeder Künstler seine individuelle Vorgehensweise hat. Insider hingegen fühlen sich in die "gute alte Zeit" zurückversetzt,denn heute,25-30 Jahre nach den Interviews,sind nur noch wenige der Zeichner aktiv oder überhaupt am Leben(Eisner selbst starb am 03.01.2005). So ist es ein nettes Buch geworden,das neben Infos und Anekdoten für Fans jedoch auch ein bißchen wehmütig stimmt.

HASH(0x99495db0) von 5 Sternen Interesting Insights of Old Comics Creators! No Hype. 31. Januar 2002
Von Bryan E. Leed - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Since Will Eisner is a such a respected figure in the comics industry, it seems that all of the interviewed gentlemen took their interview seriously. These are interesting interviews about how each artist got started in the comics business, and how they went about their work, as well as the ups and downs of their career struggles. Most of these interviews discuss events that occurred decades earlier. These are not interviews full of fluff and hype, as would appear in contemporary trade magazines that are trying to promote some upcoming comic book product line.
Since Will Eisner is the interviewer, each interviewee seems to be taking him seriously, and respectfully as either a peer or an inspiration. Thus, these comics creators are willing to go a little deeper with their insights and experiences of their careers.
All of the interviews occurred in the early 1980's, so many of the interviewed people have since passed away. But since the subject of conversation is usually about events of the Golden and Silver Age of comics (1935-1975 ROUGHLY), these interviews read like new interviews anyway. Each interview reads like a transcript of two guys sitting around, casually talking about the good old days. So if your idea of the good old days is the Golden Age of comic books, then you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
I picked up this book to read about Gil Kane, Jack Kirby, and Joe Kubert; but I ended up being introduced to the careers of Milton Caniff, Neal Adams, Harvey Kurtzman, and others, folks who I had heard of but had never followed their works before.
So this book gave me many insights and new attitudes about the field of comics creation.
It's also nice that all of the interviews are sprinkled with many b/w photos, pictures and drawings of each interview subject, so reading this book really does become a nice introduction to artists whose work you may not be familiar with.
If you're a serious, adult comics fan, then you will probably enjoy this book!
HASH(0x99495f0c) von 5 Sternen Revelatory! 18. August 2012
Von pariahstudio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If I had read this back in the 80s when I was in high school, I would have begged my parents to send me to the Kubert School. The artists Will Eisner interviews, along with Eisner himself, provide the real on-the-ground view of the comics industry by those who are actually in it.
HASH(0x99499264) von 5 Sternen Very informative 14. Februar 2013
Von Oscar Solis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Imagine being able to listen in on master cartoonists as they chat. This is the book that allows one to "listen" in. The interviews, while craft oriented, interesting and wide ranging. There is something to learn from everyone.
