Will Eisner

Eisner’s Graphic Storytelling and Visual Narrative novel gives us, the narrators, the guidelines to writing a story. It’s easy to assume that it has a beginning, middle, and end. But what does that mean? What is the beginning? What is the end? To answer those questions, it’s simply what the narrator imagines and dreams. We’ve heard countless stories over the years, both fact and fiction, but every story is told a different way. On page 86, Eisner discussed how being “very private” occurs within the reader. “Sharing” the actors experience makes the transition from private to public, and if you are telling a story you must be prepared to face that reality. Giving the audience that one-to-one connection allows for the story to work beautifully and keep them hooked til the end.
