The Musée Thomas Henry in Cherbourg, France has opened its 10th Bennale of the Ninth Art with an exhibition devoted to Will Eisner.
Featuring around 80 originals, including four complete “The Spirit” stories, the exhibition focuses on Eisner’s relationship with New York, closing out a cycle of exhibitions devoted to American authors that began in 2017.
After Winsor McCay, creator of the character of Little Nemo, then Jack Kirby, one of the fathers of superheroes, Will Eisner is honored in 2021 in the Thomas Henry Museum’s temporary exhibition gallery.
The creator of the character The Spirit, Eisner is, undoubtedly, an eminently influential author, and the exhibition traces his entire career.
BD Zoom and ActuFr have reported on the exhibition via YouTube, and Laurent Melikian offers a full written report, in French, here on ActuaBD.
