Will Eisner, the master and pioneer of American comics art, presents graphic fiction's greatest celebration of the Big Apple. No illustrator evoked the melancholy duskiness of New York City as expressively as Eisner, who knew the city from the bottom up. This new hardback presents a quartet of graphic works (New York, The Building, City People Notebook and Invisible People) and includes cameo appearances by the author himself; several new illustrations sketched by Eisner, posthumously inked by Peter Poplaski; and three previously unpublished "out-takes". Eisner's character, "The Spirit", has been optioned to be a major film. It contains an introduction by Neil Gaiman.
