The Dreamer: A Graphic Novella Set During the Dawn of Comic Books e-book

by Will Eisner


The Dreamer: A Graphic Novella Set During the Dawn of Comic Books. You see, The Dreamer is Eisner's lightly veiled autobiographical tale of how he got into comics and how he got his big break with The Spirit.

The Dreamer: A Graphic Novella Set During the Dawn of Comic Books. 1563896788 (ISBN13: 9781563896781). It's a great story, if you've an interest, and I certainly do. It is helped along, as always, but Eisner's great art (Joe Kirby has never been more hilarious than when drawn by Eisner). The other thing that helps this book is that the character who is clearly Eisner isn't just a dreamer but a doer. He wants to be successful in comics, and so he works hard and finds a way to be successful in comics.

Bottom Line First: In 54 pages, including about 7 pages Annotations by Denis Kitchen with the real names and events, Will Eisner relates a condensed version of his early years in the early years of the comic book industry. Anything Will Eisner is automatically a good buy for his fans, comic collectors, those with an interest in the history of pre-WWII America and the golden years in the creation of the comic book business and culture. The Dreamer is almost family friendly, absent a few panels of sex. I found the story line too condensed but the artwork is enough to make me forgive the book’s brevity. I wanted more, but what is on the page is why Eisner is such an honored illustrator.

The Dreamer is Will Eisener. The book is a slightly rosy version of the stages through which he lived on the way to being a founding pen in Comics. For example the industry had its mob connections, especially on the distribution side, but also in its association with pornographic pre-comic booklets. This aspect is more hinted at than honestly acknowledged.

I am not a major consumer of graphic novels, having been spoiled by starting with Alan Moore’s Watchmen
Not many can follow that Alan Moore. Eisener was not a follower. He was a founder and innovator. It is Moore who follows Eisner.

Very nice, as expected.
X-MEN
Typical Eisner storytelling and great artwork. Will leave you thinking about the "humanity" of it all.

I needed this book for my comics as literature college course and it arrived on time and I am glad I purchased it.

This is one you can easily read in one sitting. I enjoyed it and in no way regret buying this book.

Will Eisner, creator of the Graphic Novel, shows why he remains unchallenged in his field.

it's not difficult to figure out the pseudonyms. eisner's decision to write his autobiography using code names for everyone (who is completely and obviously specific people), especially in this era of tell-all comics, is something of a head-scratcher. nevertheless, this is a thoroughly interesting and entertaining insight into Eisner's early career: his work at a printing press, his infamous encounter with the mafia and tijuana bibles, the decline of pulps and the rise of comic books, and the start of the Eisner/Iger production shop, with some nice cameos by Alex Toth (i think), Jack Kirby (i'm sure), and a writer who i don't recognize.
And, as ever, Eisner's storytelling, renderings, design, and particularly his breakdowns are excellent, regardless of any flaws in the story or, in Eisner's style, excessively emotive and kinetic characters.
The book is short, probably a 20-30 minute read the first time you go through it.

Will Eisner offers a revealing look at the early days of comics in this semi-autobiographical tale of a young comics artist's early shot at stardom and some of his stumbling blocks (such as the copyright suit he was involved in as a young man over a Superman rip-off he was paid to draw).
The humanity of all Eisner's books is in strong evidence here, as we meet the other artists in the workshop where our dreamer goes to work: people with flaws and strengths, weaknesses and dignity, who just may be based on Jack Kirby, Alex Toth, Joe Kubert, and others from the dawn of the medium. Names are changed to protect Eisner's cohorts, however.
If you're a fan of comics' Golden Age, this is a book very worth checking out. This could be the story of any creator who worked for National, Atlas, Dell, or any of the other publishing houses of the time and dreamed of striking out on his own.
