Will Eisner Event at Geppi's Entertainment Museum

  • Geppi Entertainment Museum 301 W Camden St Baltimore, MD, 21201 United States

From March 1 - March 7, 2015, Geppi's Entertainment Museum is participating in the annual celebration of the genius that is Will Eisner. Art Way Alliance will be there on Saturday, March 7, 2015 along with a slew of artists to celebrate the legacy that is Will Eisner by promoting graphic novel literacy, sequential art, art and free speech awareness. 

Artists include Keir Lyles of Apocrypha Comics Studio, Ashley Gonzales, Monique Graham, Darren Soto, the members of HnH Comics, and Tyrone Barnes. Tyrone will also host a Comics in 3 Panels workshop from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM. It's sure to be a great time. 

Over nearly seventy years, Eisner has been called the "Orson Welles of comics' and the 'father of the Graphic Novel.'[x] With characters like The Spirit and Graphic Novels like A Contract with God, Will Eisner continually invented new standards for what it means to be a comic book artist. Come find out more about Eisner's work - and even buy some of his book - at the museum. It's a great event for anyone who has any interest in comics!
