From his creation of The Spirit (and with it, much of comics’ visual vocabulary) in the 1940s through later groundbreaking works like A Contract With God and The Plot (his 2005 history of the anti-Semitic “Elders of Zion” hoax), Will Eisner always gave his audience plenty to chew on. Appropriately, MOCCA launches its Dinner and a Movie series tonight with Will Eisner: Portrait of a Sequential Artist, a full-length doc about the comics pioneer. A buffet dinner precedes the film; afterward is a panel discussion with director Andrew D. Cooke and acclaimed comics writers Dennis O’Neil and Paul Levitz, moderated by Danny Fingeroth.
