Editorial Reviews


What the book is most to be commended for is the sheer volume of people Andelman is able to get on the record to talk about Eisner, not to mention the invaluable firsthand accounts from Eisner himself. --Wil Moss, Nashville City Paper, June 9, 2006<br \><br \>The definitive profile of this influential and talented comics genius... Once I picked this book up, I found it hard to put down. I give my heartiest recommendation --Heavy Metal magazine, March 2006<br \><br \>Perhaps most poignant, however, are the testaments to Eisner's influence and talent from peers such as Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, Robert Crumb and Neil Gaiman. --Kevin Walker, Tampa Tribune (January 8, 2006)<br \><br \>"... affectionate and comprehensive... For pure biography, A SPIRITED LIFE is great." --Steven Grant, Master of the Obvious, Comic Book Resources, December 14, 2005<br \><br \>"Our Highest Recommendation." --BudPlant.com, November 26, 2005<br \><br \>A must-have item for any serious devotee of the comics art form. - Tony Isabella -- Comic Buyers Guide, October 3, 2005<br \><br \>A significant achievement. The profuse illustrations, both photos and art, alone are more than worth the price. - Paul Fitzgerald -- The Roanoke Times, January 8, 2006<br \><br \>Andelman's affectionate biography rambles a bit, but it's entertaining and enlightening. - Richard Pachter --The Miami Herald, February 20, 2006

Bob Andelman worked closely with Eisner in shaping an intimate albeit sprawling biography. - Tom Spurgeon --Publishers Weekly/Comics Week, November 15 , 2005

Will Eisner was a comics legend--and he has been honored with a biography to match by TwoMorrows. Savor it. --Starlog Magazine, March 2006
