Ann Eisner, wife of comics legend Will Eisner died at 97 late last week, according to a source close to the family.
A lot of times stories like this get overlooked, but the women in our lives are integral to our success as we are, and they should be recognized.
Will is best known for his work on The Spirit and the graphic novel A Contract With God, pioneering comic studios and inspiring people like Jack Kirby. Ann married Will back in the 1950s and they had two children together, one of whom died of leukemia in 1970. Ann remained with Will until his death in 2005, a beautiful love story that spanned decades.
Most of the information on Ann just comes up about her foundation which donated graphic novels to libraries. She is a part of comics legend and her and Will’s legacy will always be remembered.
