Exclusive Interview with Will Eisner

## BadAzz MoFo ##: "There are two important things to remember when talking to Will Eisner. First, don't call him a living legend (even though he is). He doesn't really like being called a living legend. But most important, don't tell Will Eisner that comic books are for kids; because even though he's in his 80s, you're likely to have a fight on your hands.

Just in case some of you don't know who he is, let me give you a brief introduction. Will Eisner is to the comic book industry what Orson Welles was to the film industry � a maverick artist that pushed the bounds of his chosen form of expression and helped to reshape the medium. In the case of Eisner, his choice of expression is comics, or as he prefers, sequential. The prestigious Eisner Award, the comic industry equivalent to the Oscar, was named after him."
