The original editions of this book and its first companion volume, , were pub- lished by Poorhouse Press, a tiny imprint operated on a very part-time basis by Will Eisner himself, and largely overseen by his late brother Pete, who had retired some years earlier.
Ever the ambitious businessman as well as creator, Eisner decided to self-publish his educational titles to keep a foot in all aspects of the comics industry. While Eisner was solely responsible for the editorial side of the Poorhouse Press volumes, all of his numerous graphic novels, magazines and comic books were being published and designed by professional organizations in America and overseas, and he was not, during that stage of his long career, running a true pub- lishing operation himself.
Thus, the Poorhouse Press editions, though commercially successful—as dozens of printings attest—were assembled without the. As a result, the printed version of most images suffered considerably. For the new W. Four side- bars have been added to illustrate storytelling principles by contemporary cartoonists.
Minor grammatical errors were corrected and some new text was added for clarity. Additional insightful editing to this edition was provided by Margaret Maloney, with oversight from Robert Weil and Lucas Wittmann. With input from James Sturm of the Center for Cartoon Studies, the various elements were given to Black Eye Design where Michel Vrana, an exceptional designer with long experience in the comics field, worked with talented book designer Grace Cheong to update and improve the layout.
The guidance and ultimate approval of the estate, primarily Ann Eisner and Carl and Nancy Gropper, was at all times appreciated. The final results, we are confident,. In this work, I hope to deal with the mission and process of storytelling with graphics. The effort of artists to tell stories of substance with imagery is not new. He cited major woodcut artists who, in my opinion, established an historical precedent for modern graphic storytelling.
This book has an introduction by Thomas Mann. About that time, Lynd Ward also began publishing graphic novels in woodcut form. Ward firmly establishes the architecture of the form. Comics are essentially a visual medium composed of images. Of greater significance is the resonance of the subjects he undertook. The graphics then control the writing and the product descends into little more than literary junk food.
It is these substantial themes that pro- vide encouragement to the aspirations of comics. In Page layout. My colleague Harvey Kurtzman broke additional ground in this area with his paperback of all-new comics. He Done Her Wrong. By then. Milt Gross. Jungle Book. It was a spoof of the classic novel done with wordless cartoons.
The effect of this is that the writer and artist are deflected from the discipline of storytelling construction and become absorbed in a packaging effort. While words are a vital component. The result is often a preoccupation with graphic elements. Not only is it the intellectual frame on which all artwork rests. In Graphic Storytelling.
This is a daunting challenge to a medium that has a history of being considered juvenile pap. I hold that the story is the most critical component in a comic. Despite the high visibility and attention that artwork compels. This book will undertake the examination of storytelling and review the fundamentals of its.
The traditional production of comics by a single individual has. Writing in comics includes all the elements in a seamless mix and becomes part of the mechanics of the art form. The task is further compounded by the harsh reality that images and packaging elicit the primary reader response. Neil Gaiman. To my son. To supportive colleagues. His years of experience in comic books has been an invaluable aid.
Tom Inge. To my wife. To Dave Schreiner. Scott McCloud. From the compila- tion of pre-published newspaper comic strips. The rise and establishment in America of this remarkable reading form in the package we know as comic books occurred over sixty years.
This last permutation has placed more of a demand for literary sophistication on the artist and writer than ever before. The latter half of the twentieth century experienced an alteration in the def- inition of literacy. While film and theater have long ago established their credentials. Comics are at the center of this phenomenon. The proliferation of the use of images as a communicant was propelled by the growth of a technology that required less in text-reading skills.
Each employ arranged graphics and text or dialogue. From road signs to mechanical use instructions. Many creators are still content with furnishing little more than titillation and mindless violence. It was the beginning of the maturation of. Little wonder that encouragement and acceptance of this medium by the education establishment was for a long time less than enthusiastic. In their influential book The Medium Is the Massage.
It is hardly surprising. This was followed by a mushrooming of comic book stores which supplied easy access to a broader spectrum of readers. Its colorful and pictorial format bespoke of simple content.
It started with the confrontational underground movement of artists and writers riding a wave of direct distribution to the market. The predominance of art in the traditional comics format brought more atten- tion to that form than to its literary content.
Since comics are easily read. The years between and saw comics beginning to reach for liter- ary content. Accompanying these changes. In this environment.

When visual devices such as photographs and diagrams do occur in a novel, they utilise the space of the page in a markedly different way to text. Most importantly to this study, these visual devices are a part of the graphic surface of the page and the reader sees them before they engage with the textual content. Pictures on the pages of contemporary prose fiction comment on the ever-present distinction between words and images when dealing with mimesis in literature.
