Description

One of four extraordinary graphic novels celebrating the Big Apple, from the master of American comics art.

Before the Lower East Side was cool, there was the grit and grime of Avenue C, a world filled with street musicians, overflowing sewers, and peeping toms, all recalled in Eisner\'s unforgettable style.

Born in New York in 1917, Will Eisner was the author of the legendary comic strip The Spirit. His fifteen graphic novels; his posthumous history, The Plot; and the newest compilation Life, in Pictures, form the Will Eisner Library. The comic industry\'s top annual awards, The Eisners, are named in his honor.
