Will Eisner passed away on January 3rd, 2005 at the age of 87 following quadruple bypass heart surgery.
Our condolences to Will’s wife, Ann, and his family, friends and colleagues. A true giant in comics, he will be missed, personally and professionally.
More information will be posted [at WillEisner.com] as it becomes available.
There will be no funeral service, per Will’s wishes. “Will and I hated funerals,” his wife, Ann, said the morning after his death. “We made plans long ago to avoid having them ourselves.” He will be buried next to his late daughter, Alice, who died in 1969. Surviving Will are his wife, Ann, and his son, John.
