|Will Eisner's Influence on David Mack|
|When asked by Atomic Comics owner Mike Malve if Will Eisner shaped his growth as a storyteller, David Mack replied:|
||Will Eisner was one of my biggest influences in storytelling. Especially in my early formative years. In my early teens, I had read an interview in which Frank Miller gave his props to Will Eisner. It was the first time I had heard of Will Eisner, and, impressed by what Frank Miller had to say about him and his influence, I immediately researched him. I learned that he had written Comics and Sequential Art. So I wrote to the publisher and ordered a copy through the mail.
When it arrived in the mail, I was elated. And I began to immerse myself in the book and study it religiously.
Iíd do drawings and stories of my own to incorporate everyone of the ideas that Will Eisner explained in his book.
I found collections of the SPIRIT books at the library and I studied them as well. Eisnerís work was like a launching pad for my own like Frank Millerís stories were for me as well.
Flashforward to a few years ago. I am signing at the Mega Con in Orlando. I look up form my table and there is Will Eisner at my table. He tells me he likes my work and I do my best to try to explain my appreciation of his work and his influence on me. He was so gracious and open minded in his discussion of my work.
The last time I saw Will was at the Eisner Awards in 2005 in San Diego. I was up for my 6th Eisner award that year, and stepped out of the ceremony for a moment to use the restroom.
So there I am at the urinal as I hear the door open and guess who stands right next to me and says hello.
Yes, Will Eisner.
Then immediately Frank Miller comes in the door and is on the other side of me. "You couldnít hold it either, Will?" Miller says.
Eisner starts laughing. I do, too. But probably for more reasons.
That is my last memory of Will Eisner, and standing at the urinal in between my two childhood heroes, it was kind of like my own personal Eisner Awards.
