PS Magazine

In my life, it seems all roads lead back to Will Eisner.

In 2002, I met the American master artist and writer for the first time over lunch and embarked on a three-year project to research and write his biography, Will Eisner: A Spirited Life. The project outlasted Will himself, publishing nine months after he died.

Along the way, I met and interviewed a bunch of wonderful people who continue to be a part of my life today.

One of them is Paul Fitzgerald, the first managing editor of PS Magazine—which was founded by Eisner—and a friend of Eisner’s for the rest of his life. Fitz worked with Eisner longer than probably anyone else. They traveled overseas together and shared many social moments in each other’s company.

A long time dream of Fitz’s was a book that shared with the world one of the lesser known periods of Eisner’s life, his 20 years at the art helm of PS Magazine, the Army’s preventive maintenance magazine. The book, Will Eisner and PS Magazine, hit many fits and starts over the last few years before finally publishing this month.

You can only order the book directly from Paul Fitzgerald at his website, willeisnerandpsmagazine.com. It is an absolute must for any Will Eisner collector and fan.
