For most of my life, the comings and goings of garbage was pretty much a mystery to me. When I was a kid, I put it in a can. When I lived in New York City, I dropped it down a shoot. And so on. It wasn’t until I moved out to the middle of nowhere and started taking my trash to the dump that I re

In 'Will Eisner: Champion of the Graphic Novel,' noted historian Paul Levitz celebrates the master of comics storytelling by showcasing his most famous work along­side unpublished and rare materials from the family archives.

Here, we see a nostalgic look back at Eisner’s early characters from 1974. Eisner’s poster combines the probable but unprecedented combination of the Spirit and Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, with less probable appearances by Uncle Sam and the Hawks of the Sea.
