Will Eisner Google Logo

Google has a special Google logo, also known as a Doodle, for Will Eisner. The logo is a symbol of one of Eisner’s most notable works, The Spirit. Eisner was a cartoonist, but more importantly, he was one of the individuals who helped popularize the cartoon novel industry. Eisner was so important to the industry that they have an annual award for cartoonists named “the Eisners” or Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards.

He was born on March 6, 1917 and died 87 years later on January 3, 2005; today would be his 94th birthday.

    It’s a great logo. Can’t say the same for the description. But all you need is a proofreader or a copy editor. Such a person would prevent SearchEngineLand from sounding like a 14-year-old with only a passing knowledge of the conventions of English grammar and usage.

    I would like to know why GOOGLE would honor a man who created comic books that portayed a White American hero (Spirit) and a African American sidekick,(Ebony White) that was drawn by Eisner, to resemble a monkey!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Later in life Will was asked the question, \Why did he draw the character
    to resemble a monkey?’\ his response was, those were different times… when asked does he now regret that decision, as it is offensive to African Americans today, his response was NO!!!!!

    It’s always funny to me what / whom Google chooses to celebrate. Reagan’s 100th birthday recently and nothing. But comic book icons, JFK speeches, and John Lennon, they rock out the doodles for. Oh well!
