Happy birthday to Will Eisner, who was born in 1917 and died in 2005; he would have been 96 today. Neil Gaiman called him “an American storyteller, like Ray Bradbury, like O. Henry,” and Wizard magazine named Eisner “the most influential comic artist of all time.”

Happy Birthday, Will. I miss you.
