WILL EISNER WEEK EXCLUSIVE! All week here at 13th Dimension, top artists are picking their favorite Eisner splashes. Today: EVAN “DOC” SHANER!
UPDATED 3/17: Will Eisner would have been 100 on March 6. We’ve gathered our best Eisner coverage and are re-presenting for the occasion. For a complete index of stories, including contributions by Darwyn Cooke, Matt Wagner and Francesco Francavilla, click here. Enjoy.
Last year, the Spirit‘s previous cartoonist — Darwyn Cooke — picked Eight Eisner Stories Every Fan Should Read for us here at 13th Dimension.
This year, we decided to spread the wealth and asked some of the industry’s foremost artists — including the likes of Mike Allred and Kevin Nowlan, to pick their favorite Eisner splash pages.
Here’s artist Evan “Doc” Shaner:
“I picked up A Contract With God and Other Tenement Stories in college because I was a big fan of Eisner’s Spirit work. It’s obviously a different animal but I loved the visual language of it. I hadn’t seen any artist let the pages breathe like this while still using every storytelling tool that makes comics special. The stories are overtly dramatic but the drawings really struck me.”
