Week 6: Will Eisner

Well, here's mister big, influential Will Eisner. He made works like The Spirit and A Contract with God, and allegedly his work established the graphic novel as a form of literature.

OK, even at this size, I'll grant you that looks pretty cool.

Week 6: Julie Doucet

Julie Doucet is a Canadian cartoonist and is known for My New York Diary and Dirty Plotte. According to Wikipedia, her work focuses on "sex, violence, menstruation and male/female issues." Charming!

Again, that was quite unpleasant.

Week 6: Robert Crumb

Robert Crumb came up with Fritz the Cat and Zap Comix, and apparently also has works that critisize and satirize American maistream.

Man, this guy's stuf is unpleasant to look at. Satire or not, that's just not a point in his favor.

Week 6: Daniel Clowes

Daniel Clowes is a writr and cartoonist of "alternative comic books," most notably Eightball and Ghost World.

Week 5: Lyonel Feininger

Feininger was a cartoonist, charicaturist, and expressionist. Joy.
His comic work is apparently not worth talking about, for how much more often his other artwork seems to show up.

And now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to be unconsious for the next sixteen hours.
