The First Modern Graphic Novel

A Contract with God and other Tenement Stories by Will Eisner


After I made a seemingly disparaging comment about comic books on another website, one of the commentators challenged me to write a review of a graphic novel. What better graphic novel to review than the one that most sites have dubbed the first modern graphic novel, and also attributes it to having helped spawn the genre and bring it to art form level. I’m talking about Will Eisner’s 1978 graphic novel, “A Contract with God and Other Tenement Stories.”





"A Contract with God" by Will Eisner is available from Amazon.com, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, Kobo Books (USA, Canada & Australia), The Book Depository (free worldwide delivery), new or used from Alibris or Better World Books as well as from an IndieBound store near you. A version of this review originally appears on Curious Book Fans, which appeared on {the now defunct} Yahoo! Contributor Network.
