      brianmichaelbendis: So, over the last few years I have been honored with the task to write introductions to some of the greatest works of comic book fiction that have ever been made.  every Friday I will present some of those introductions right here.

      Like…

       

      Incal introduction

       

      Listen to me right now! 

      If you are a storyteller from any visual medium on the planet Earth and if you are even thinking about nicking something out of this Incal graphic novel collection stop!! Stop it! Stop the madness!!

      Even if you think you are creating an homage… stop! It!

      Be the first writer or artist on the planet Earth to have read this material and not ripped it off.

      There- got that out of my system. Kind of.

      I agreed to write this introduction specifically because it gave me an excuse to reread this material that I had not read in years… but material that meant everything to me.

      See, like almost everybody who has ever read Incal I read it first in college. And like everybody who’s ever read it… it blew my mind. It blew my mind to the point where I then went and found every piece of graphic novel literature with these authors’ names on it that I could possibly find.

      And this is Moebius. This is expensive stuff. I literally bought Moebius graphic novels in lieu of buying things that would somehow help me get ladies. I didn’t buy clothes so I could buy graphic novels by Moebius. I didn’t buy food so I could buy graphic novels by Moebius and some of the graphic novels weren’t even in English.  And I only speak English. Well, a little Hebrew but that ain’t gonna help me here.

      Hey, listen; I knew that Moebius and his peers heavily influenced much of modern science fiction in America and certain movies.  I always prided myself on “really” knowing what that meant.  I could lean over to my wife and tell her what graphic novel this movie or that show we were watching had a Moebius influence. (If you are like that too and happen to find a woman that actually finds it cute… marry her.) 

      But after rereading this material specifically to write this introduction I became infuriated.   Shocked.  Angered.  

      There is literally whole sections of this work that have been lifted whole cloth and put into major motion pictures where neither the writer nor the artist has been credited.  Not just little bits here and there.  Whole sections!  This is stunning to me.  We’re talking panel after panel, page after page lifted and put in other people’s work. I had forgotten about some of the sequences here and now I see then with fresh eyes I see the depths in which certain storytellers had sunk.  I do not want to name names (really I do, but, I know, not cool).

      Listen, I’m sure both of our authors are men of means at this point in their life.  One would have to imagine that they are doing okay for themselves.  I’ve never met them and I hope one day to, but, one has to imagine it’s flattering on some level but I will be angry for the authors that I’ve never met and say: shame on you, you grifters, you charlatans. Shame!

      I get the impulse.  Sure I do.  But if you want to be inspired by what you read here today… Do what they did. Invent. Imagine. Build.  Be inspired by their inspiration. Don’t take it for yourself.

      To the authors of this material:  thank you. Thank you for literally decades of inspiration and showing all my peers and me what the graphic novel is capable of.

      To the publishers:  congratulations on a magnificent presentation.

      To those of you who are about to read this for the very first time: I’m truly jealous

      YO PORTLAND! 

      Free Comics Event Series Celebrates Will Eisner Week

      Portland State University invites you to a week of special events to celebrate the hundredth birthday of Will Eisner, the legendary cartoonist whose influence defined the contours and possibilities of American comics in his lifetime and beyond!

      Will Eisner Week is an annual celebration around the week of March 6th, every year. It celebrates “graphic novels, literacy, free speech awareness, and the legacy of Will Eisner.” Eisner is best known for championing the development of the graphic novel as a literary form, and for creating The Spirit, the iconic 1940s hero that redefined newspaper comics. However, Eisner’s achievements stretch even further.  In celebration of Eisner’s centennial, Will Eisner Week engages with his legacy for a week of thought-provoking events on the PSU campus.

      Documentary Screening of “Will Eisner: Portrait of a Sequential Artist”

      This award-winning full-length feature film is the definitive documentary on the life and art of Will Eisner, father of the graphic novel, and includes interviews with Kurt Vonnegut, Michael Chabon, Jules Feiffer, and Frank Miller, among others. The documentary will be followed by a discussion between Marvel Comics best-selling writer Brian Michael Bendis and Eisner’s former Dark Horse editor Diana Schutz.
