Dinner and A Will Eisner Movie
Check this out! Danny Fingeroth and The Society Of Illustrators are hosting Will Eisner: Portrait of A Sequential Artist on November 7.
It’s “a full-length feature film documentary about the pioneering comics and graphic novel creator that includes interviews with Eisner and many of the foremost creative talents in the U.S., including Kurt Vonnegut, Michael Chabon, Jules Feiffer, Jack Kirby, Art Spiegelman (who also narrates the film), Frank Miller, Stan Lee, and Gil Kane.”
Before the movie there’s a buffet dinner and after the movie, there will be a panel discussion, led by Fingeroth, that includes Dennis O’Neil, Paul Levitz and movie’s director, Andrew D. Cooke.
After the panel, there’ll be a signing and a sale of DVDs of the movie and “selected works by Eisner," and works by the panelists.

Will Eisner created The Spirit and is one of the great talents of comics. His work deserves to be studied for generations and his book Comics And Sequential Art is must-reading for any artist, illustrator, cartoonist or fan.
Here’s the timetable:
Panel discussion: 9pm
Tickets are $40 a pop which is a bargain for this kind of event.
The Society of Illustrators is located in midtown Manhattan, 128 East 63rd Street (between Park and Lexington Avenues) and despite Frankenstorm Sandy, they will be open for business.
