New York: The Big City

Front Cover
W. W. Norton & Company, 2006 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 138 pages
Graphic Novel. With an unparalleled eye for stories and expressive illustration, Will Eisner, the master and pioneer of American comics art, presents one of his renowned celebrations of the Big Apple. No illustrator evoked the melancholy duskiness of New York City as expressively as Eisner, who knew the city from the bottom up. 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 in New York: The Big City.
