Read full description of the books:
"After a lifetime of anonymity spent in the middle Bronx - an uneventful youth spent in concrete school yards where he was a 'left-out' of choose-up games - and after 25 years as an unnoticed clerk at the city's parole board, Max Million, a lonely bachelor, finally retired. Whereupon he applied for a license as a private investigator." pg. 40
Opening line for a whimsical tale, "Detective Story: or Necromancy in the Bronx" ... My favorite of 7 light stories.
I also enjoyed "The Long Hit" about a mob hit-man's botched job, and "A Sunset in Sunshine City," about an unexpected turn-about late in a man's life. "The Appeal" is a sequel to Kafka's "The Trial." It inspired me to reread "The Trial."

Read information about the authorWill Eisner was born on March 6, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. By the time of his death on January 3, 2005, Will Eisner was recognized internationally as one of the giants in the field of sequential art, a term he coined.
In a career that spanned nearly eight decades -- from the dawn of the comic book to the advent of digital comics - Will Eisner was truly the 'Father of the Graphic Novel' and the 'Orson Welles of Comics.' He broke new ground in the development of visual narrative and the language of comics and was the creator of The Spirit, John Law, Lady Luck, Mr. Mystic, Uncle Sam, Blackhawk, Sheena, and countless others.
During World War II, Will Eisner used the comic format to develop training and equipment maintenance manuals for the US Army. After the war this continued as the Army's "PS Magazine" which is still being produced today. Will Eisner taught Sequential Art at the New York School of Visual Arts for 20 years. The textbooks that he wrote were based on his course and are still bestsellers. In 1978, Will Eisner wrote "A Contract with God," the first modern Graphic Novel. This was followed by almost 20 additional graphic novels over the following 25 years.
The "Oscars" of the Comic Industry are called The Eisner Awards, and named after Will Eisner. The Eisners are presented annually before a packed ballroom at San Diego Comic-Con, America's largest comics convention.
Wizard magazine named Eisner "the most influential comic artist of all time." Michael Chabon's Pulitzer-prize winning novel "Kavalier and Clay" is based in good part on Eisner. In 2002, Eisner received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Federation for Jewish Culture, presented by Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman.
