Will Eisner Recovers After Quadruple Bypass Surgery

I was among many who received the following e-mail from Denis Kitchen; I received it several hours ago when I wasn't anywhere near a computer, concerning comic book and comic strip legend Will Eisner.

Will Eisner is in intensive care following open heart surgery on Wednesday afternoon. Quadruple bypass. He didn't want anyone to know until he came through OK, but all signs are that he is recovering terrifically. He's already joking with the nurses and "biting his lip" over delayed deadlines.

I meant to get word out first thing this morning. but I unexpectedly spent most of today in the emergency room myself --- kidney stones!

He's not supposed to return to work for 6-8 weeks (I'm making side bets), so it'd be nice in the interim if the industry deluged him with warm words while he's recuperating.

Please encourage fans and friends to send Get Well cards to:

Will Eisner Studios, Inc.
8333 West McNab Road,
Suite 131
Tamarac FL 33321).

Thanks for your help. Feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

Merry Xmas!


I join everyone else wishing Mr. Eisner a speedy and full recovery. (Denis, too!)
