Yesterday I played a video documentary about Will Eisner for my students. This was the official video that they were giving out at the Awards dinner at the San Diego Comics Con, 2010. It's one more reason why students believe me when I say that pen-dipping is a noble trade.
I highly recommend it. Everyone doing/loving/learning about comics should watch it and then go spend time with Will's work. Then you will understand why they call it the "Eisner" Awards.
Name of Documentary: Will Eisner: Portrait of a Sequential Artist.
