That's the Spirit

Having just come back from the world premiere of this documentary at
the Tribeca Film Festival, I have to attest what a gem it is. I'm a big
comics fan of the superhero genre and so I was aware of Eisner and all
the accolades in passing but didn't know much of him beyond that.
However, this documentary really opened my eyes to both Eisner as a
pioneer in the comics industry and more importantly as a human being.
The director Andrew Cooke did an amazing job combing thru interviews
and old files and not to be outdone Kris Schackman did a spectacular
job editing the bits of footage and art and putting it all together. I
was surprised to hear this film was done on a shoestring budget
considering the quality audio and visual. Great job all around guys.
Here's to hoping this little gem brings in some awards on the film
